21 Reasons To Use Tablets In The 21st Century Classroom

21 Reasons To Use Tablets In The 21st Century Classroom | Project Research. Bailey Gell | Scoop.it

"When I was a kid, I dreamt about our school desks as computer screens.

How cool would it have been to be able to draw, write, and learn directly onto my own computer? As the years went on, people theorized that laptops would take over the classroom, but the price of these devices was too high for a 1 to 1 ratio. It never quite caught on in lower grade schools.

Now, it is the age of the tablet. We have affordable high-powered computers that can provide all sorts of enrichment through an intuitive touch screen interface and the education world is taking notice. More and more classrooms are imagining the curriculum in the context of each child having his or her own tablet.

Yet, some educators are still skeptical. How can a piece of technology truly enhance the learning process, without causing distraction?"

Tablets are ‘a real game changer’ in class | Project Research. Bailey Gell | Scoop.it

"Mobile devices such as iPads are paving the way as the mode of delivering classroom instruction. When third- and fourth-grade students in Cheryl Barber’s class at Helena Flats Montessori School write stories about plants, they’re not using pencil and paper, but rather iPads to take photos and type text."

What Happens When You Deploy Android Tablets In A Classroom | Edudemic

What Happens When You Deploy Android Tablets In A Classroom | Edudemic | Project Research. Bailey Gell | Scoop.it

We hear of many reports on the deployment of iPads in classrooms and schools, but what about the deployment of Android tablets? This post is a review of what happened in a 5th grade classroom where all students were provided with an Android tablet. It highlights a "must-read report that details every aspect of how it went."

The full report provides a "high-level step-by-step guid to deploying Android tablets" (most likely applicable to any tablet deployment).

Key takeways are provided such as (quoting from the post):

* The  school district came up with new policies, processes, and instituted IT support for the project.

* The parents were involved in the project as well. (Additional info in post)

* The overall price came out to be $200 per student per year.

* There were multiple technical problems thoughout every week that required that tablets be rest to factory settings.

Much more may be found in the post, or you might want to check out the actual report, "Learning is Personal, Stories of Android Tablet Use in the 5th Grade" at http://www.learninguntethered.com.
