Learning and Teaching with iPads: Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes | Technology in Primary Education | Scoop.it

Rethinking the approach to learning with an iPad was one of the key points that arose from our recent iPad study tour in Queensland.
Many of the schools talked about the development of 'Learning Workflows' where work is created in one app, then built on in another App and so on.


Using the iPad where many Apps are generally single function, requires a different approach to create useful learning outcomes that moves the integration of the iPad in learning from the Subsitution model to the Redefinition model.

Have Your iPhone or iPad Read Emails To You & Speak to Write Back | Technology in Primary Education | Scoop.it

"Want to have your emails read to you? How about talking to write out a reply rather than poking around on the touch screen? You can easily do both in iOS, so the next time you need to read and write emails while you’re on the go or driving, consider using the awesome text-to-speech and Dictation features on the iPhone and iPad."

The iPad in Education – How the iPad Suits All Learning Styles | MediaCAST Blog | Technology in Primary Education | Scoop.it

"When the gift-giving season for 2011 came around, the dreaded word ‘iPad’ appeared on the wishlist of nearly half the children in America. Parents across the country feared that the expensive handheld would become just another video game console tossed in the toybox. Now, while the flashy graphics and wide array of entertainment apps can paint that sort of picture, many app designers are actually tending toward interactive learning tools for their younger users. Was this portable PC really designed with education in mind?"

We are experience, a global customer experience creative agency . My iPad sketching tools | Technology in Primary Education | Scoop.it

You never catch me out and about without a sketch pad, sharpies and various other assorted sketching tools. Never knowing when you might come up with that new idea, have that breakthrough moment on your latest project or even just have a few moments to practice your sketching skills all make this a great habit for any designer or UX practitioner to adopt.

"Long after degrees have been conferred and careers have been launched, many folks just can’t seem to quit school. For them, life provides an overstuffed cornucopia of educational opportunities that don’t necessarily require hefty loans and navigating different professorial strategies."

 

KF:  The usual caveats apply with these TOP OF THE CHARTS lists - the iPad is a personal device and people use them very differently - preferences for apps are not necessarily ubiquitous.

Using Physical and Virtual Printers with iPads - iPads in Education

Using Physical and Virtual Printers with iPads - iPads in Education | Technology in Primary Education | Scoop.it

The list of AirPrint enabled printers is growing but many of us just don't have one. Several app developers have jumped in to fill that void and in doing so, offer features way above and beyond simple printing from your iPad. And if you think this is only about paper based printing then think again. We'll also look at virtual printers for delivering content from an iPad to other computers, people and applications.
