Reports suggest the touch tablet devices could be doing more than was originally intended, driven by a pressure for change that is is coming from users, as health care providers seize the new tool with renewed passion, and demand more from the technologists.

Innovation is not only related to technology and the use of it, but also with the professional skills and how we take advantage of them. The fact of becoming a 21st century teacher is pretty challenging but not difficult. Mixing professional skills and tools that we have in this trendy century can bring amazing results in education.

No doubt. It's true: 

"75% of Millennials visit YouTube monthly. Millennials coincidentally are going to make up 75% of the workforce by 2025. But they aren’t alone. Regardless of age, people simply prefer video over other mediums. According to Neilson, video is the most popular content consumed globally. Think about it; if given a choice between watching an instructional video and reading a 3 page document, which would you choose?"

The History 2.0 Classroom: iPad Hieroglyphics | iPads in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Over the past few years I have facilitated a number of iPad workshops with teachers from across the country. One observation that I have made is that when anyone (not just teachers) are new to iPads (or any device), they have a difficult time deciphering the meaning of the icons that appear consistently throughout apps.

Emily Leffler's curator insight, September 19, 2016 4:53 PM

Using technology is really not a new concept, and although staying current with the latest and greatest is good, simple technology can be just as effective in supplementing the lesson and adding a depth that can't be reached any other way. 

John Zuluaga's curator insight, April 23, 2017 1:52 PM
A pretty deep thought! 

Everything we do in class must have a purpose so it will be more effective. Most of the times, the use of technology is not wise; however, the technology can become more innovative if we, as teachers, think about the use of apps, websites with a very specific purpose.

The Evolution of Apps in Education, and it’s good news! - Daily Genius | iPads in the Classroom | Scoop.it
“ But Apps and the developers (many of who are bringing teachers onto their teams) are changing. The philosophy has changed. The products they are producing have a new focus. These Apps are gaining a vote of confidence from teachers who are downloading them. So why are these Apps dominating school App lists and gaining respect from the educational community. Quite simply they promote elements that we know have a positive impact on learning. Applications such as Book Creator and Explain Everything start with a blank canvas and lead students to use multimedia to demonstrate learning, produce digital products and make learning more visible.”
