iPads could be good for toddlers because they are more like traditional play - Telegraph - 1 views

  •  
    "Not all screen time is bad for toddlers as iPads and smartphones can help them learn in the same way as interactive play, scientists have found.
    Last year the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) recommended that children should have TV-free days and limit screen time to a daily maximum of two hours.
    Yet new research from the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health at Cork University Hospital in Ireland suggests that touch screen technology has a different impact on the brains of toddlers to simply passively observing a programme."

  •  
    "December has been a busy month for us!  It's a really exciting month too!  Have you heard the saying that usually things click for kindergarten kids AFTER Christmas?  Well, I can happily say that things have really clicked for our classroom AFTER Thanksgiving.  Almost all of my students know their letters and sounds and have a huge bank of sight words that they know.  They are becoming so much more independent.  I love sitting back and watching them work.  This allows me to work with small groups or to get assessments done."

  •  
    "Design thinking is a powerful tool to really get your students thinking about and tackling a problem or topic at a much deeper level. It is a structured task that focuses on giving considerable time to thinking about and empathising with the people within the situation (Target audience or client), designing and prototyping a possible solution that is immediately challenged in order to improve it. It is used much in business and the design industry but can be used as a general classroom task within any subject area. It also gets students to work quickly without much introduction."

Video: When to choose iPads vs. Chromebooks | eSchool News | eSchool News - 2 views

  •  
    "In the last few years iPads and Chromebooks have both seen astronomical growth in education becoming two of the most popular devices for classrooms and one-to-one programs. In light of that it's only natural that power users and fans will compare and contrast their merits, given that so many schools have limited funds for devices.

    That's basically the setup for this spirited debate by Jennifer Gibson, CEO of PD Learning Network and an iPad connoisseur and Rich Dixon, vice president of professional learning and a devoted Chromebook user.

    "Sometimes you're forced to have one or the other," Gibson said. Together the pair dissect everything from price - $400-$600 for an iPad mini; $250 for Rich's basic Chromebook - to mobility, weight, screen resolution, apps, and camera quality."

Creative Coding: Painting with Light | iPad Art Room - 0 views

  •  
    "
    This week I've been collaborating with Year 4 students, and their inspiring classroom teacher and fellow ADE Dan Aivaliotis-Martinez (@martinezgeek). We developed some ideas for teaching and learning that connected Sphero devices with art-making practices - in a nutshell, programming a Sphero ball to move with the coloured light turned on, recording the trail, or 'light painting', photographically.

    These cross-curricular lessons drew upon elements of the curriculum in science, maths, technology and the arts, as students created 'light paintings'."

  •  
    "The iPad is well-known as an amazing creation tool, but with Google Drive's "Open-In" feature on the iOS platform - the iPad has quickly become a collaboration device extraordinaire.


    Google Drive is best known for apps like Docs and Slides, and these are great platforms for students to work collaboratively on documents and presentations. However, Google Drive has one under-used feature that offers a secret collaborative power . This hidden power of Google Drive sits in the layers of the "i" button."

Kindergarteners Who Share iPads May Perform Better: Study | TIME - 1 views

  •  
    "Students perform better if they share an iPad with another student as opposed to having one all to themselves, according to a new study.

    Though schools nationwide have ramped up their efforts to introduce technology in the classroom, there's just a small body of evidence on the benefits for students. Now a new study suggests that iPads do have a role in academic performance, but the effect may be greater when students collaborate."
