How to choose between iPads and Chromebooks in the classroom - Daily Genius - 0 views

  •  
    "The race to be the go-to technology in your classroom is more than heating up. It's on fire. Like, someone grab a fire extinguisher because the race is ablaze. The two biggest contestants in this race are, not surprisingly, products from Apple and Google.

    Both Apple and Google are in a high-stakes race to own the education ecosystem. They're going about it in different ways but their goals are the same: to have their products used by the next generation."

A Guide for Bringing the SAMR Model to iPads | EdSurge News - 1 views

  •  
    "When used effectively, iPads can develop thinkers and problem solvers. They can be used to transform learning inside and outside of the classroom, and offer limitless opportunities. Many educators are effectively integrating technology in the classroom using iPads to achieve the 4C's, or "super skills," that digital learners need to compete in our global society.

    But in order to do that, the focus has to shift from apps to content: that's when true redefinition takes place. When my district rolled out our iPad initiative in 2012, teachers thought they needed specific apps for every content area. Eventually, we ended up with literally thousands of apps in our portal. This was extremely overwhelming, difficult to manage, and eventually, a turn-off for teachers.

    Are you ready to adjust your teaching for this new learning revolution? Let me take you inside the idea of SAMR with a helpful metaphor: Starbucks. The simplest way I know to describe the levels in the SAMR model is using a visual created by Tim Holt, who uses Starbucks as a unique way of looking at the model."

Design Thinking with iPads |  IPAD 4 SCHOOLS - 7 views

  •  
    "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."

    "Math Shake is an engaging, playful app that helps students learn to solve word problems.  It contains thousands of questions which students turn into an equation by looking for keywords and clues in the problem. Once students have discovered the equation, they can use a variety of built-in learning tools such as number lines, tens frames, fraction pieces and counters to work our their answer. Teachers and parents can also use these tools to teach effective strategies."

iPads in the Classroom - A Student's Perspective | teachingwithipad.org - 1 views

  •  
    "I had the opportunity to interview a Freshman student, Nick Boone (@2050TGOD) that I coincidentally met on Twitter. He saw a conversation that I was having with a popular YouTube personality, and gave his opinion on iPads in the classroom. I took this chance to contact him and ask if he would answer a few questions. He almost immediately agreed to the interview, which we completed via Google Docs just a matter of a couple hours. Nick had the opportunity to participate in a 1:1 iPad program at his high school in San Diego."

5 Tips To Help Integrate iPads Into Your School - Educate 1 to 1 - 0 views

  •  
    "This fact there are over 14 million iPads in schools illustrates how many 'decision makers' have chosen the iPad as a tool for learning. As we continue to integrate the iPad into schools, it is worth reflecting how the initial setup and training can have a real impact on the success or failure of a 1-to-1 programme. The recommendations below are borne out of a desire to help teachers without overwhelming them and to model good practice to students. There are many apps that could have been chosen, but those mentioned below are generic and able to serve a purpose across the curriculum."

Using Book Creator to author mathematics - Book Creator app | Blog - 3 views

  •  
    "My students have noticed that I often say "You'll never see that in a math book".

    Some of the topics we explore take a twist and some of the methods I use to teach are a little unorthodox (but they help). Students affectionately call this a "Yencafied" lesson strategy, and often add a hashtag (#yencafy) in their notes!

    Come the end of this school year, I mentioned to my classes that I'd been thinking about this "never-see-that-in-a-math-book" theme, and I decided perhaps some of these strategies should show up in math books… and that these books should be authored by them. They loved the idea!"

    This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple's own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we'll decide how to handle it moving forward."

External Microphones for iPads: Better Mics for iOS Audio - 3 views

  •  
    "The built-in microphone on iOS devices definitely has its limitations. It does not always give you the range or depth of audio that you want, and the quality is mediocre at best. So, whether you are podcasting or recording video, there is no doubt that a good external microphone will greatly improve the quality of your recorded audio. What follows are some of the best wired and wireless mics for iPad and iPhone users."
