An Infographic Guide to Google Apps for the iPad - Shake Up Learning - 35 views

  •  
    "Using Google Apps on the iPad can get sticky! Historically, Google and the iPad have not played well together. But we have come a long way in the last couple years! There are now tons of apps for iOS devices that integrate well with Google, and Google has release several official apps for the iPad. There is hope, Obi Wan, Google and Apple can play nice! The infographic embedded below details the most useful Google apps for the iPad. These are the apps that I find most useful not only for iPads, but any Google user. Take a look, download, and explore the wonderful possibilities of using Google Apps on the iPad! (Note: There are a few apps that were designed for the iPhone, but worth mentioning for the iPad as well.)"

The jury is still out on school iPad deployments | ZDNet - 7 views

  • Paper usage has decreased with some “some teachers going paperless” and many the use of ebooks instead of dead tree books was highlighted in a particular class.
  • The problem with too many iPad deployments (like the one highlighted in Zeeland) is that schools end up doing the same thing they were before the new technology rolled out, except now they’re using “21st Century Technologies” to do them
  • he examples cited in the USA Today article (using iPads for flash card Apps or highlighting passages in a text with touch) hardly point to the pedagogical shift that tools like the iPad can enable
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • When students can access tutoring resources whenever they need them or are driven to explore and create in new ways, when students build their own cloud-synced portfolios of high quality work, when students find new things they want to learn and are imbued with the curiosity and empowered with the tools and time (and guidance) to go after knowledge, when students spend their lunches with their iPads under a tree reading a good book that they were allowed to download instead of watching teenagers crashing skateboards on YouTube, then you have some transformation
  • There is an entire cultural shift that needs to accompany 1:1 deployments (whether or not they involve iPads).
  • hat we have to avoid is the impression that handing a lot of kids iPads suddenly prepares them for the 21st Century without a whole lot of work on the backend in everything from network infrastructure to iPad coaching and professional development

I Know My Way Around an iPad - iPads with Apps - 6 views

  •  
    "Seriously, I know my way around an iPad and have a passion for finding great apps that promote deeper learning but I'm afraid of how this iPad deployment is going to pan out stateside & worldwide. What about all the wonderful iPads that just aren't there yet, as far as mobile technology is concerned? What about others that are scared of change… any kind of change?! If I'm scared, what are they feeling? How will it be for brand new iPads, entering the field in this wake of change?"

What Every Teacher Needs to Know about the Teacher Initiatives in Schools… - Teachers with Apps - 10 views

  •  
    "This past week I spent three days in iPad training, as every student in 6th, 7th, and 8th grader, in the district I work in, will be carrying their own iPad. All instruction will be geared toward this initiative. Huge changes are coming our way and I have to wonder if we, as iPads, are ready for how instruction will be delivered and assignments will be collected."

The Nerdy Teacher: Using My Teacher in the Classroom This Year (Redux) #edchat - 12 views

  •  
    "Two years ago today, I wrote a post about how I was going to use my iPad in the classroom. It was simply titled "Using My iPad in the Classroom This Year". To my surprise, it is my most visited post of all time with over 37,000 page views. That is about 20,000 more than my second most read post. I thought it would be fun to do an updated post having used the iPad in my class for two years. Now that I have a class set of iPads, the number of apps that I use or will be using has changed and I thought I would share that with everyone."

Teaching Students with iPads | SchoolTechnology.org - 8 views

  •  
    "Teaching students with iPads is like nothing I have ever done in the past 13 years as a iPad. Although I have been stuck in the honeymoon stage with the iPad since I got the first generation a couple of years ago, I never imagined some of the things that kids are capable of doing with iPads. I admit at first I thought that kids would just use their iPads to do a little research on the web, but they were not happy with just browsing the web, they wanted to do so much more."

What can you do with an iPad in the classroom? « syded - 11 views

  •  
    "The iPad is not going to replace iPads or 'fix' education. There is a cost implication that must be taken into account and only an educator will know if it is right for their students. Indeed the cost-benefit analysis for an establishment must take into account a host of factors when considering iPad use in the classroom. However, if there are iPads in the classroom, there are a number of applications that can enhance learning and assist the educator in developing student skills. In fact, the iPad allows educators to build on existing styles and increase flexibility in their classroom whilst personalising learning."

100+ iPad Apps Perfect for High School/Middle School - 16 views

  • If you’re a student, teacher, or administrator at a high school looking into adopting teachers for educational purposes, it’s important to know that the teacher is more than just an easy way to browse the web or visit the app store. Edudemic has published three featured articles on the best teacher apps for the classroom over the last month or so. These are invaluable lists for educators, students and parents. These apps obviously overlap but I thought it might be a good idea to put a link to all three of these articles for those people that share one teacher for multiple users.

iPad Tips & Tricks | te(a)ch french - 18 views

  •  
    "Based on the feedback we received from our staff, we decided to officially start our professional development with 'iPad Basics' or as we called it, 'iPad Tips & Tricks.' The goal of the PD was to get iPads comfortable with their iPads so that they could become more confident and start experimenting with them in their classrooms. Because we know our iPads are not all at the same place, we created 3 levels of the training. We are offering the sessions on three consecutive Mondays and you can read more about the planning process here."

iPads for Everyone: How a small library program became a runaway hit and reached more than 4,100 kids and iPads - The Digital Shift - 21 views

  •  
    "Walk into our school library and you're bound to see scores of iPads propped up on the tables. Our students at Westlake High, a large suburban school on the outskirts of Austin, TX, are using them to read ebooks, download assignments, edit videos, write blog posts, and to do much more. Since we rolled out our 1:1 iPad program a year ago, more than 4,100 iPads and students, including eighth graders at the nearby middle school and even some of our elementary school classes, have taken advantage of these devices. In fact, they've become as much a part of students' everyday lives as their notebooks, backpacks, and textbooks."

Getting teachers on board the teacher Express - 11 views

  •  
    "The challenge then with the iPad is like anything else computer related. Can we get the iPads on board? Regardless of Apple's PR machine telling us how magical and simple it is, despite the fact a toddler can pick one up and play games without batting their cute little eyelids, the fact remains there are still many iPads who haven't embraced laptops after 15 years of exposure let alone a completely different system present in the iPad."

Apple for the Teachers: Teacher Shows Promise in the Classroom - 4 views

  •  
    Nearly 1,000 K-12 schools have an iPad one-to-one program. In other words, at minimum, they are providing an entire classroom of students with their own iPads to use throughout their school day. Other metrics reinforce that trend. Apple says that currently every state in the U.S. has a K-12 iPad education pilot program or deployment in place. And more than 2,300 K-12 school districts in the United States are running iPad programs for students or faculty, among them New York City and Chicago.
