What Will It Take for iPads to Upend Teaching and Learning? | MindShift - 61 views

  •  
    "As schools across the country consider which devices to invest in, they must first consider their big-picture vision for how they'll be using these devices - and to what end. They must consider the needs of teachers and students, and come up with a shared understanding of their goals."

Avoiding "Unmitigated Disasters" - nashworld - 41 views

  •  
    "After stumbling upon the article, "Switch to e-books was 'an unmitigated disaster,' says school principal," in my feed this past week, it occurred to me that there are increasingly predictable patterns surrounding stories of failed "innovation" in digital learning initiatives. Schools have been assigning computers to each child for some time now. And still, we continue to see stories like this in the media. In short: we can do better than this."

The Best 1:1 Device is a Good Teacher | Edutopia - 56 views

  •  
    "Over the course of two years, I, along with the Burlington Public Schools tech team, had the opportunity to meet and connect with over one hundred schools. These discussions would usually involve what device works best in the classroom and how the iPad is affecting teaching and learning outcomes. Frequently this conversation focuses on the most effective hardware for teaching and learning. While this is an important decision to make, it should not be the focus. In fact, the best devices a school can employ are great teachers."

Why BYOD Isn't a Trend - 98 views

  • This isn't just about Compaq vs. IBM PCs, as I had to deal with back in the day. Or Windows vs. Mac OS. It is about supporting everything, like it or not. And doing so on puny IT budgets too.
  •  
    Ever since PCs first started entering corporations in the early 1980s, IT managers have had to contend with users bringing in their own gear. Some analysts call this the consumerization of IT, which still is just a new name for an old trend.

BYOD - Worst Idea of the 21st Century? : Stager-to-Go - 127 views

  •  
    Schools and school districts who have come to the personal computing party decades late now have conjured a cheap less-empowering way to produce an illusion of modernity. They call it "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) or "Bring Your Own Technology" (BYOT) and it's a terribly reckless idea for the following reasons.

Preparing Your School for an iPad Implementation - iPads in Education - 52 views

  •  
    "Planning is imperative for any technology initiative - iPad or otherwise. You need to ensure that you clearly understand and communicate how the technology integrates with your overall pedagogical objectives. Too many institutions purchase technology and then search for ways to utilize it, or leave it collecting dust on the shelf."
