Education, learning & technology. iPad Published on June 16th, 2013 | by Rebecca Stacey 2inShare iPads in Primary Lessons – A guest post by Rebecca Stacey Before we begin it’s worth bearing in mind that at no point have I ever recommended that a lesson be planned purely teaching how to use an iPad, or indeed teaching how to use an an app.

education, learning & technology

The iPad should be used (often repeated I know) as a tool. So, my brief was a kind of ‘anatomy of an iPad lesson‘ – this is my take on that. I’ve already discussed the ‘writing process’ here – in a post aimed at teachers who had iPads and wanted to use them. The watchword for that was ‘engage’ and that is a key element of many primary lessons. First some key points: for group iPad use, say 6/8 in a classthese lessons are mixed media, some written element or use of written texts alongside the digital media-this helps if you are under pressure to produce evidence!

Will schools go for iPads? Kerry ⋅ iPads ⋅ iPads ⋅ 5 comments Image by chibiayu “The desktop market has entered the dark ages, and it’s going to be in the dark ages for the next 10 years…” Steve Jobs Wired Magazine. 1996 Approximately 3 years ago there was one very useful piece of information I took away from an ICT strategy meeting I attended; don’t invest money in static computer suites – the future of technology is mobile.

Will schools go for iPads?

To that end, our ICT department implemented more laptops for student use and carefully reconsidered the development and replacement of static ICT suites within school. It seemed rash to be kitting out a suite which would only be replaced in 4 or 5 years, and by which time mobile tech would have made further advances. It’s often said that mobile devices and tablets are placed to bring about a fundamental change in the way we teach and learn with technology.

How to use mobile devices in the classroom

Claiming they lead to "disruption" and can be used for bullying, Mr Gove bracketed mobile phones and iPods in the same category as weapons such as knives. Many objected to this broadside with an online petition. As a former Director of E-Learning, teacher for seven years, and current educational researcher, I have witnessed transformational learning experiences where mobile devices such as iPods and mobile phones have been key. Modern mobile phones in particular are more like pocket computers and can connect young people to a world of information and learning. Parents such as myself could only dream of having such opportunities when we were at school. Part of the problem stems from the fact that all of us own a mobile phone and all of us went to school. iPad Curriculum. Essential-ipad-guide.

iP@ds in my classroom - Update 1 #Edchat #EdTech #Education

The students were finally able to get their hands on the iPads on Monday (November 28). The first day was spent mostly on the ins and outs of how the iPads were to be used. I showed some of the basic features of the iPad and let them take them for a spin. They were excited to see what they could do and spent time taking pictures and playing around with the free apps. I showed them how to log into Dropbox and Evernote and how to log off those apps as well. The next day, the kids were diving deep into their project (Creating a Transcendentalist Society) and started to encounter some problems using Dropbox. The next issue that came to light was the lack of email. I'll be keeping regular updates on my site on the apps I use, the policies put in place and anything else that comes up regarding the iPad pilot.
