iPad in the Classroom - Can we make it simpler? | dedwards.me - 4 views

  •  
    With many educational institutions choosing to use tablets for learning, it can be quite intimidating for teachers when faced with so many applications. The diagram below serves to illustrate that less than 20 core apps can play a significant part in the learning process and hopefully temper any trepidation.

The Digital Education Revolution comes to an end. Where now? | isupport - 1 views

  •  
    The final round of government funding is currently being distributed to schools all around Australia. So far over 967,000 computers have been bought, infrastructure built and (most) teachers up-skilled to benefit from the acquisition. But as the funds come to an end, many school principals are wondering if the process has been beneficial, and how can they continue to support and progress the Digital Education Revolution?

Create Your Own Narrated iBooks With Book Creator | iPad Apps for School - 8 views

  •  
    "create their own books using images, text, videos, and audio recordings. You can arrange your book in three different formats; portrait, square, or landscape. Each page in your book can include pictures and videos from your iPad's camera roll and or from your iTunes library. In addition to the pictures and videos you can include as much as text as you can fit on each page. In fact, if you just want to have text on a page you can do that. If you would like to narrate your book you can tap the record button to add your voice to each page of your book. Every page in your book can have a custom color scheme."

  • Diigo is a web service that allows you to collect and highlight and remember the information that you want to across the web. It runs on any modern browser, as well as the Android and iOS platforms. In this post we will show you how to easily add the Diigo diigolet to your iPad so that you may use the fun features of the Diigo toolbar.
  • The Diigo diigolet has some nice features on the iPad. When it is first activated, it will ask you to login (use the same credentials as diigo.com). The Diigo toolbar will appear at the top of the page. Notice that there are several options available to you–Bookmark–Highlighter–Floating Sticking Note–Comment. The options are all simple to use.

    The one that may confuse you is the Highlighter option. To use it, simply tap and hold and then bring the blue overlay over the area that you want highlighted–THEN tap the Highlight button.

A Model to Transform your use of ICT | Teaching and Learning in the 21stC - 5 views

  • The SAMR model has been around for a while, but I think it is time for a revisit. Most of us have been working with some element or other of 1 to 1 access, but has our pedagogy – the way we use the technology to teach in our classes – changed or shifted in that time? I would like you to take some time to reflect on how you are using ICT in your classroom. Think about which level of SAMR you are at, and what steps you can take to get to the next level.

Learning In Burlington: BYOT and one-to-one initiatives are literacy initiatives - 0 views

  •  
    "As a school leader who recently sold my community on the importance of moving to a one-to-one environment where every student has access to a web-based device, I believe strongly that our students will be more literate than students in other schools who do not have access to web-enabled devices. A look at the world outside of our schools and the technological resources being accessed in so many professions that allow people to work "smarter" is a clear indication of the track that our students need to be on in order to be able to function in the "real world."

    The biggest stumbling block in schools even if we can get the devices is the proficiency level of the adults in the building in utilizing the technology resources effectively. This is not meant to be an indictment of educators, but it is a critical question that we all have to look at, assess, and then move forward. Technological tools/resources can assist educators in some of our biggest undertakings (i.e. common core standards integration, teacher evaluation, providing relevant professional development, etc.). However, because so many educators in schools are not comfortable with the most modern literacy skills we are not able to make better progress."
