6 Great Websites for Educators Using iPads in the Classroom - GAGGLE.NET

6 Great Websites for Educators Using iPads in the Classroom - GAGGLE.NET | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
Despite news of Chromebooks surpassing iPads as the most popular devices sold to U.S. schools, iPads continue to play a very important role in K-12 education. It’s increasingly become more common for students to come to school with their own iPads, while other schools are implementing successful 1:1 programs.

The goal of any device should be to fade into the background, allowing learning to always be in the forefront. Tailoring your curriculum to include devices such as iPads can have a positive impact on student engagement in the classroom and continued learning outside the classroom. When iPads are integrated effectively, the outcomes can be amazing. Bookmark these websites for some great tips.

8 Positive Findings from 4 Year 1:1 iPad Initiative

8 Positive Findings from 4 Year 1:1 iPad Initiative | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

The Franklin Academy High School in North Carolina initiated a 1:1 iPad program at the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year. Over the course of the following two years, the pilot was expanded to include all grades (9-12) in the high school. In April, 2014, the Academy released results of a study that sheds light on the impact that the use of the iPad has had on academics, and the development of the vital non-cognitive skills that their program is founded upon.

Becky Roehrs's insight:

Small study of an iPad program..over 470 students used iPads for 1-4 years and over 200 students completed a 10 question survey about the program. Overall students were positive but there were issues when extensive reading or writing was expected.

Hopscotch Helps Kids/All Learn to Program On Their iPads | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

Over the weekend I published Three Free iPad Apps That Teach Kids To Program. Since then I've had many people tell me to try Hopscotch. Hopscotch is a free iPad app that introduces students to programming logic.

 

In Hopscotch students put command boxes into order to make cartoon avatars move and draw lines. Students can program one or all of the cartoon avatars to move and follow commands based on touch or on the movement of their iPads.

Becky Roehrs's insight:

Boy I want this app!!
