iGeneration, what the fuss? - 40 views

I find it really interesting that the Apple way of thinking is coming to a point of even naming a whole generation! I'm not sure that Steve Jobs anticipated the significance of the letter "i" as a ...

    This is a great website that offers educational videos as resources for students to view as examples.
    I liked the fact that videos are divided in subcategories and that you can learn about anything. Knowledge is at the tip of our fingertips.
    Victoria, Khan Academy is a great resource every teacher should use. The educational videos are very well made and it keeps the students engaged. The other feature that is awesome is that you can "sign up" and it keeps track of your progress as you go through different videos and activities. Khan Academy is Great!
    I love the fact that it's individualized per student. It's great that it's FREE and that students can be assessed after the skill/lesson has been reviewed. I was hoping there would be something for English/Language Arts. I'm sure going to share this with our Math and Science department because I believe it's useful for student practice.
    Great videos and completely learner centered. One thing that our district is always wanting is data on student progress and this is a great way to assess in a child centered way. I also wish this was available for Reading Language Arts. Great info, thanks for sharing.
    Thanks for sharing this informative website. I like it that is not only for students but for parents too. Parents and students can get resources. This website has alot of lessons that students can use for them after reviewing a lesson.
    Thank you for the video link. This website is actually used at our campus daily for SAT testing preparation and tutorial trainings. What I expecially like is the video rendering process vs. other's great. The student are able to view videos without interuption or video rendering delays. I highly recommend this website to everyone for all areas of educational levels. It offers a high variety of video in every content of learning that you will need. It's a great website. Thank you..Blanca
    Excellent website with lots of videos and examples! The videos provide detail explanation about each topic. The practices allow you to practice the skills that you just learned in the video.
    Great website! I love that there are many videos that educators could use as part of their lessons and parents can also benefit from this website as well.
    The videos are great and ideal for the whole learning community. It's great for practicing the skill and developing a skill. Thank you for sharing.
    Wow! I've heard of this website, but had not check it out. I loved all the online videos and many ways that students can practice their skills.
    I first heard of this website from one of Dr. Butler's seminars last fall. I also saw it on the news show "60 Minutes" a couple of months ago. There are so many videos for a teacher to choose from. I showed a couple of the videos to my fourth grade class on place value. I will try to work some more videos into my lessons.

New Study Finds iPads in the Classroom Boost Test Scores | Techland | - 4 views

    A new study shows that students who use iPads in the classroom score better in literacy tests than those who don't. Educators in Auburn, Maine began instructing 266 kindergarteners using the iPad 2 this fall, and those who used the tablet scored higher on literacy tests and were more enthused about learning.

    I love my iPad! I do think there's a lot more going on than just using the iPads that is causing the high achievement rates. I could give a classroom full of middle-schoolers iPads and they would be able to download apps and play lots of games. I truly believe that the teacher makes all the difference. If the teacher isn't on top of things, the iPad would be just another toy. The authors of the article gave the iPad all the credit and it's not so. Don't get me wrong, I would love it if we had iPads for our students, but teachers that know how to integrate them into the curriculum make the learning happen!
    Juanita, In the classroom, the level of expertise of the teacher knowing how to integrate the iPad into lessons will determine whether iPads are different instructional tools to engage the students in the learning process or are they just a toy for entertainment or social networking. Classroom content can be enriched by using the iPad and constant teacher monitoring when being used by the students.
    I would love to incorporate iPad's into the classroom because of the number of possibilities it has. I also, however, agree, with Adriana when it comes to the main source of the classroom. The teacher needs to know the tool, know how to incorporate to make successful lessons in order for it to be successful. If you think about it, the number of teachers in the district... then the number of teachers who are willing to incorporate it. It is a big difference! It would be great if all teachers would incorporate it, even begin training to incorporate it.
    It would be extremely interesting to see how the Ipad can boost test grades. It's also important to note that the teacher would have to familiarize herself with this technology. I think they would be an amazing tool for the classroom because they will keep students engaged and interested in doing their work. Also, it's interesting because new apps are always coming on the market and they can also be used in the classroom.
