Pain and Remedies of Sharing iPads in Schools - 17 views

  •  
    "There is no end to the uses of the iPad in education. I've discussed that ad nauseum on this blog. As a learning tool, it has the potential to make a great positive change to learning. The only problem is Apple designed it for individual use. Schools are designed for ( or budgeted for) shared use. Conventional wisdom is for iPad use to occur in a 1:1 or BYOD Environment. In the best case scenario, I wholeheartedly agree. Unfortunately, financial realities will often dictate that sharing is the only viable option if we want our students to enjoy the benefits of the iPad. It can be done effectively - I've shared my thoughts early in the year about the pros and cons of shared iPads - but doesn't happen without some iPad consuming workarounds. What follows is my take on the pains (and remedies) of sharing iPads in a rather large Primary (elementary) school."

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 times 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 teacher coaching and professional development

The Nerdy Teacher: Using My iPad 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 iPad 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."

Filmmaking with Kids and iPads | SchoolTechnology.org - 7 views

  •  
    "Yesterday after school my fourth-quarter filmmaking group made up of fourth and fifth grade students, met for the first time to start filming "The Ghost of Bethke." Although we have been writing the script and planning the movie for the past few weeks, this was the first time we met to start filming, but this time there is a twist. This time we are filming our movie exclusively on a new time (the time 3). I was impressed with the new camera on this time and I wanted to see if a movie could really be shot and edited on it."

Mark Anderson's Blog » The iPad & Critical Pedagogy - 8 views

  •  
    "I'll go ahead and say it - I think the discussion on the iPad and Pedagogy needs to go further. Too many posts (and I am guilty of this too) focus on, "check out this cool app", or "did you know the iPad can do this"; you've all seen them. I really feel we are past the iPad where we should be looking at the functionality of the iPad as a device and be looking at it in a way which ensures we are looking more at how learning can be redefined and modified through the use of the iPad."

The iPad2 just hovers in the air, always handy to see and touch | iGo With My iPad - 1 views

  •  
    "You can hold your iPad, stand it up with the smart cover or a tripod, or lean it against something. Many iPads there isn't space on the desk or kitchen counter to have the iPad nearby. Great news from the folks over at TwelveSouth. We have been fans of their little folding tripod stands from the beginning of the original iPad. So, when we stumbled onto the HoverBar, we got excited."

Thoughts on AppleCare for iPads in Schools « EdApps.ca - 4 views

  •  
    "I don't want to make blanket statements regarding purchases. I fully recognize that every educator, school and institution has to decide what makes sense for them; ultimately, it is you that must live with the purchasing decision. At the same time, I would like to point out some things to consider. Applecare, from what I understand, extends the standard warranty of your time from 12 months to 24 months. Additionally, if you crack the screen of your time, you can have that time replaced for an additional $49 fee over and above the cost of your applecare protection plan of $99."

iPad Alarm gives you enough iPad to scrape the window or shovel the snow | iGo With My iPad - 2 views

  •  
    A free alarm app we found to help keep us on time in the morning is Winter Wake-Up. The app is for the iPhone but works fine on the time in 2x mode. The idea of the app is that it watches for weather changes where you are (you need to have Location Services turned on), then adjusts your wake up alarm time to give you extra time.

Yikes - Time for Some Storage Space Management on my Time - Time Insight - 8 views

  •  
    "I was doing a quick (I thought) WiFi sync on my iPad 2 this morning, just to get a new iBook I'd downloaded on the Mac onto it. The sync went quite slowly and during it I caught a glimpse of the Capacity status bar in iTunes - and noticed that free space on the iPad 2 was down to around 7GB free. That's a terribly low amount, given that it's a 64GB model."
