Lee Shulman, as reported by Marge Scherer, suggests that expert teachers -- despite enormous challenges --demonstrate: Cognitive understanding of how students learn; emotional preparation to relate to many students whose varied needs are not always evident; content knowledge from which to draw different ways to present a concept; and, finally, the ability to make teaching decisions quickly and act on them. So how do they do that? Let's break it down. 1.

What Does Transformational Teaching Look Like? Should we use iPads in schools? We are good teachers precisely because we don’t have one tried-and-true method, says Guy Claxton...
Many people seem to think education is like medicine, and ought to be ‘evidence-based’ in the same way. We should figure out plausible ideas about ‘what works’ in classrooms, and then submit them to large-scale randomised control trials to see if our method is better than some ‘control group’. But I don’t think this is either possible or desirable. I think teachers should be researchers – but in a very different sense. Let me explain. First of all, this model assumes there are simple cause-and-effect relationships waiting to be discovered. But we can and do make experiments in our own classrooms all the time, and we are better teachers for it. But though all kids are different, every class quickly develops a mood or a culture which comes to narrow the bandwidth of the children’s diversity. So no, we shouldn’t try to be Researchers with a great big R.

Using the iPad with the writing process. The iPad can be a brilliant motivational tool for children in the classroom.
The ease-of-use, coupled with the speed that you can get results means that it can be the perfect tool for integrating into your literacy planning. And, as many schools don’t have 1:1 tablet computers it can also mean that the collaborative and group aspect of the technology can be harnessed. I’ve been working with teachers who are developing the writing process in an attempt to motivate their boy writers. We have been looking at the writing process and working out where the enthusiasm lags, or where skills need developing. This part of the process is important, reflecting on why the children are stalling, or on what the challenges might be really helps the planning process. iPads in Primary Education. Imovie for ipad.

There is More to iPads in the Classroom Than Apps In a previous post, Evaluating Apps with Transformative Use of the iPad in Mind, I describe my ambivalence about teacher asking my for the “perfect” app to teach this or that.
I have teachers ask me frequently about app recommendations for different subject areas. “What app could I use to teach subtraction?” “What app would you recommend for my students to practice writing?” “I want to use iPads in my Science class. What app is good for that?” In a recent article, titled ” How the iPad Can Transform Classrooms” by Ben Johnson on Edutopia, raises awareness of the difference between using the iPad as a way to teach students versus the iPad as a tool to learn for students.
The lesson planning questions I hope my teachers will learn to ask will change from “How can I teach this content?” He calls for the paradigm shift in seeing the iPad as a TOOL TO THINK WITH: images used with permission from Andrea Hernandez @edtechworkshop You can download all four images as a pdf.
