iTunes - Books - The iPad Is Not a PC by Jonathan Nalder - 0 views

  •  
    "The iPad is not a PC. As obvious as that sounds, if the only computer you've ever used was mainly a box on a desk, or ran a desktop operating system with a physical keyboard attached, its only natural that the ways you attempt to use a new device will be dictated by the old paradigm. Instead of just sticking with such an approach, this book looks at the different ways that the PC and iPad have been designed to work, and then detail new ways that the iPad can be used for workflows not work.

K-5 iPad Apps According to Bloom's Taxonomy | Edutopia - 0 views

  •  
    "In this six-part series, I will highlight apps useful for developing higher order thinking skills in grades K-5 classrooms. Each list will highlight a few apps that connect to the various stages on Bloom's continuum of learning. Given the size and current exponential growth of the app market, I will also assist educators in setting criteria necessary to identify apps that maintain the integrity of teaching for thinking."

    "Disp Recorder lets you easily record anything that happens on the screen of your iPad: navigating through the Home screens, changing options in the Settings app or working in another app such as GarageBand or Google Earth. It will even record a Keynote presentation complete with the virtual laser-pointer etc - an option for having students record a presentation of their work to share with their peers."

Kindergarten Math on the iPad…Many Questions… | Langwitches Blog - 1 views

  •  
    "As you are watching, ask yourself:

    What changed by using, in this case, the iPad and ShowMe app?
    Could the same [learning] have been accomplished by keeping students' illustrations analog?
    Was there differentiation potential?
    Can this type of "activity" be used as an assessment to replace/upgrade traditional assessment?
    Are the movie clips potential artifacts for digital portfolios?
    Could these movie clips be part of a variety of student work at a parent-teacher conference?
    Was any learning amplified by placing it on the classroom blog to share with families?
    What skills were practiced?
    What literacies were supported?
    Was it worth the extra time investment, the learning curve?"

BalancEdTech - Apps Taskonomy - 2 views

  •  
    "The iPad (or iPod touch or iPhone) with its apps opens many new opportunities for learning. At the same time, it offers a slightly different wrapper for older learning opportunities. Both can be worthwhile, but it would be a shame if teachers missed the former for the latter. And, if past experience and research is any indication, educators are much more likely to co-opt the new technology to accomplish the status quo.

    This activity is designed to help teachers think through both opportunities and to categorize those apps that lend themselves to either or both. Teachers will start by exploring a variety of apps, some that lend themselves to learning content such as math facts or spelling words and others that can be used in open ended content creation such as storytelling or photography. Then, teachers will examine a set of lessons that use these apps. Finally, teachers will use a "taxonomy" such as Bloom's Taxonomy, SAMR, LoTi, ETaP, Prensky, etc. and attempt to classify/categorize where the apps fall. Most likely teachers will need to contextualize the app to a particular use/activity. Ideally, teachers will realize that in most cases it is not the app itself, but the use that detrmines where it falls and that the apps belong in multiple places.
