  •  
    "Two schools are both alike in dignity. Part of our story takes place in Jersey City, NJ while the other part takes place 32 miles away in Roslyn, NY. Some would argue that this is the best of times and the worst of times in education. This case study will celebrate what is good about education today by presenting two stories that illustrate how Green Screen technology on iPad can be used to support authentic student voice in learning environments on different ends of the educational spectrum."

iPad in PETeaching and Learning nuts and bolts - 4 views

  •  
    "Having taught PE using iPad since it first came out in 2010 I have seen it grow rapidly as a tool to support teaching and learning.

    Having purchased one for personal use I could straight away see the opportunities it lent for me as a teacher with no fixed classroom.  All of a sudden I had access to information wherever I was round the school.  iPad 1 had its limitations though, namely the lack of a camera, but even without this it allowed me to make notes on learning, share videos with students about model technique and numerous other things to support my teaching, even simply planning and evaluating lessons on the go.

    Then came iPad 2 and the camera.  This changed everything and I knew straight away that this was the way forward for the whole of the department."

Top 10 Ways iPads Are Key to Teaching Kids With Learning Disabilities | Edudemic - 0 views

  •  
    "By now, saying that "the iPad is a great tool for customizing the classroom" wouldn't exactly be breaking news. But while this holds true for every student, each of whom learns in their own way, iPads are truly a lifeline for students with learning disabilities and the people who work hand-in-hand with them. For these students, iPads act as a translation, communication, and individualization tool with unrivaled effectiveness. In so doing, these devices reduce frustration, build confidence, and, well, just work in teaching students the skills they need to learn to thrive.

    Let's take a look at a few more ways iPads are altering the classroom landscape for students with learning disabilities."

    "This year I am working at a new school where all the kids are new Dutch immigrants. That means that they have just arrived in The Netherlands and our biggest job is to teach them Dutch as quickly as possible. We are a 1:1 iPad school and we have seen students benefit greatly from all of the rich-media language learning apps. This blog post however does not focus on the apps, but the features that are built within the iPad. Take some time to explain these features in the iPad's settings to make your students aware of how they can benefit their language learning."

It does this by providing a white stand and a red mirror that works with iPad and iPad mini. The reflector lets the front-facing camera recognize what is placed in front of iPad. Something to know is that iPad must be removed from any case in order to fit into the stand."

An End to "21st Century" Learning Tools |  IPAD 4 SCHOOLS - 0 views

  •  
    "Digital learning tools are seen by many people as those tools that are in some way different to other learning tools and need to be treated and discussed as such. "Let's go to the digital learning zone" or "Now it's time for class to use their iPads" are common announcements in many schools. Maybe we should stop saying digital, 21st Century and modern. I wonder if this mindset might be damaging to learning."

Create, Publish, Promote: An iPad Workflow For Learning - 1 views

  •  
    "Workflow is as much about inspiration and elegance as it is function and efficiency.

    Ideally a workflow for learning would promote curiosity and ambition as much as it supports students in accomplishing goals, turning in work, and other procedural events. Any workflow should also be aligned with the tools of the trade-in this case the hardware and software of an iPad.

    That's where Create, Publish, Promote comes in-three words that clarify a basic sequence that can realize the potential of mobile technology."

3 iPad Apps You May Not Know About for Demonstrating Learning - Learning in Hand - 5 views

  •  
    "While there are so many iPad apps that deliver content, I think the one of the best uses for technology in education is to make something with what you're learning. This might include producing a video, authoring a digital book, recording a puppet show, creating a college, narrating a slideshow, designing a comic book, or somehow making your own media and study aids. Yes, there are loads of drill and skill apps, digital books, and electronic response systems that can be very useful in classrooms. What's much more exciting to me are apps that empower students to be creative and expressive."
