iPurpose before iPad | Literacy and Technology |

"The two above images are good examples of purposeful thinking about iPad usage in schools.

One, a screenshot of an oft-used tool known as 'iPad As.. by', focuses on what the iPad can be used for and provides links to various apps that can be utilised for those functions. It goes without saying that it is a very useful website for schools thinking about iPads. It provides nutshell explanations of a number of apps that relate to each iPad as… category as well as pricing. It’s a good introduction into the functionality of the iPad that counteracts the misconception of iPad as consumption NOT creation tool.

The other, The Padagogy Wheel, is one of many variations on applying Bloom’s Taxonomy of skills to iPad apps. It develops from the general learning action verbs/skills we want our students to acquire to technology based activities that relate to these skills and finally to a selection of apps that can support this development."

The post continues to explore the issues noted above and raises the question of how to blend the best of both options. Gleeson goes on and raises specific areas where he would like others to provide feedback. Three of the seven areas are listed below.

* Examples of apps that help to develop specific skills

* Additional skills that have not been listed

* Examples of good pedagogical practice with apps

Continue to scroll down the post and you will find a table that slows the skills he has come up with and see where it is currently populated. Already there are a number of responses providing additional suggestions.

As Gleeson says this is "a herculean task" and I look forward to seeing the finished product.
