How One Classroom Actually Used iPads To Go Paperless (Part 1: Research) | Edudemic

How One Classroom Actually Used iPads To Go Paperless (Part 1: Research) | Edudemic | Valley Stream Teacher Center | Scoop.it

A look at what hapened at Plymouth South High School last year when one class "attempted to transform the traditional research process to a completely paperless one using a fresh cart of iPads."

A number of goals were "outlined prior to the research process" and included (quoting from the post):

* Students will crowd-source their research to a collective research group.

* Students will incorporate varied media types into their research: web based text, traditional text, audio and video.

* Students will work collaboratively with their teacher and classmates on their research and writing process.

* Students will become proficient researching and writing in a digital environment.

The post alos discusses the process of going paperles and  "moving forward and going paperless."

iPads in the Classroom at Clay Hill Elementary School - Education Week

"One of the biggest stumbling blocks on our road to successful iPad implementation was WiFi coverage and bandwidth.  The Information Services department had to install new access points and optimize the access points we already had. We also found that we did not have enough bandwidth.  Every time I launched a new App to the 200+ iPads on campus we exceeded our bandwidth and took every other Internet based function off line.  Eventually though we did get our bandwidth more than doubled and that was very helpful."

Its easy to start but difficult to sustain. An excellent article systematically explaining the ways to make the ipad program successful in the school.

Bryan Wiedeman's curator insight, October 11, 2014 2:24 AM

This is a fantastic article about iPad use in schools. While it only discusses the use of iPads it talks about a lot of issues related to implementation. A few of my favorite points include developing simple iPad management strategies which I feel is often overlooked. Also Overcoming "There's an app for that" Syndrome which is often hard for teachers to come to terms with when they first start using tablets in classrooms. This article is perfect for a school that has already developed a plan for BYOD implementation and then needs to examine it in more detail to make sure it covers all angles.
