This Is What Happens When You Deploy Android Tablets In A Classroom We’re constantly hearing chatter about deploying iPads in classrooms. For good reason, as iPads represent the vast majority of tablets in the market today. However, schools can’t always afford these premium devices and instead opt for lower priced Android tablets. This Is What Happens When You Deploy Android Tablets In A Classroom
You are not doing an iPad project You are not doing an iPad project. You are using iPads in your classroom, but that by itself is not a project. If the project is more specific, then name it so. If you want to find the 10 best apps to use with for literacy in Year 7, with a particular focus on boys, then call it that. The iPad is something shiny which may or may not enable you to achieve your aims. Nothing about the iPad is remarkable in pedagogical terms, there is no magic learning dust.

The iPad may only be two years old, but it's already begun to change many things. Reading is one of them. Work is another. It is selling like crazy, but it will be some time before most of the people you know own a tablet. How the iPad Is Changing Education How the iPad Is Changing Education

Learning In Burlington This post originally appeared on the Burlington Public Schools Evaluation Blog image via http://www.americasbestteachers.org/ It only took half of the school year, but we are finally ready to start focusing our evaluation discussions on best practices! While I know that these conversations take place frequently among teachers daily, the most exciting part of implementing a new teacher evaluation process is the opportunity to put mechanisms in place to amplify and focus the conversations surrounding best practices. While we have talked about our hopes for a widespread discussion among BPS educators focused on the Great Eight, the reality is that the first half of the school year has been focused on increasing awareness of the process and supporting staff in the development of goals and learning about the technology that will be utilized to archive and share evidence.

Articles Articles Tried and tested, and proving incredibly successful, these simple ways of integrating iPads into a lesson helps to keep pupils focused, organised, and engaged with their learning. These tips could be used in any lesson with any year group, but I will share examples of contemporary best practice from my role as Upper Key Stage 2 teacher and ICT Coordinator. A teacher does not even need a whole class set of iPads to be able to replicate these methods; one, six, or eight devices will also work well. 1. Controlling: Digital Leaders
iPad and Education – No Longer A Debate! There is no longer a debate! If money was no object would a teacher want their students to have an iPad each? Even if they only used it to research a different perspective.

iPad and Education – No Longer A Debate!

This blog originally started as a reflection journal as I begun a pilot program for using iPads at my school. My early posts ( check January and February posts ) were discussions of the pros and cons of iPads. As the year has gone by and I have more time to research, read other iPad articles and experiment more with apps and with the students using them more frequently, I’ve had time to reflect on what iPads are offering schools. I’m not going to debate what model of iPad program to commit to – 1:1 or shared. The iPad – What it should and shouldn’t be for Education

The iPad as a Tool For Education - a case study

The iPad as a Tool For Education - a case study In the first two terms of implementing an iPad programme, Longfield Academy in Kent have noticed a great impact on teaching and learning. Research carried out on behalf of Naace and supported by 9ine consulting is published here. It’s really exciting to be able to announce our research into the use of iPads.

Media Advisory: With just one iPad, teachers improve classroom lessons | News Center | Wake Forest University While K-12 schools around the country search for funding to provide iPads to every student, an education researcher in North Carolina has found that even a single iPad can make a huge difference in the classroom. The results of her experience with student teachers at Wake Forest University appear in the December/January issue of Learning & Leading With Technology, the magazine of the International Society for Technology in Education. “Because they’re truly part of the digital generation, our pre-service teachers and the K-12 students they teach have a natural aptitude for tablet devices,” said Kristin Redington Bennett, an Assistant Professor of Education at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. Though iPads can cost more than $500 with 3G access and a budget for apps, Bennett said, “Don’t discount the device because of its price. We found that just one iPad allowed teachers to design creative lesson plans tailored to individual learners.”

10 Important Questions To Ask Before Using iPads in Class

Both of the schools I serve have “Single iPad Classrooms”. The teachers all have iPads, and, on one campus there is a mobile cart of 30 iPads that is shared on a check-out basis. Teachers have had their iPads for a while, so I thought it would be interesting to find out how they are getting these in the hands of students. I created a survey in Google Forms (what did we do before Google Forms???).Below I have summarized the responses. The Single iPad Classroom « Elementary Ed Tech!
How One Classroom Actually Used iPads To Go Paperless (Part 1: Research) Last year, with a fearless group of 10th graders in Katrina Kennett’s English class at Plymouth South High School , we attempted to transform the traditional research process to a completely paperless one using a fresh new cart of iPads. As I have written previously about iPads in the classroom, our decision to use iPads did not start with iPads, it started with learning goals and objectives. We later determined that iPads would fit into the equation. The 4 Goals A few of the goals that we outlined prior to the research process included:
The school that gives every student an iPad Fraser Speirs is talking about changes caused by his school's radical shift in technology deployment. Every pupil at Cedars School of Excellence, in Greenock, Scotland, is now armed with an iPad, creating an environment a world away from the typical 'computer room', and providing the potential for seamless integration of technology and traditional teaching. The iPad project arose from day-to-day demands within the school. As Head of Computing, a dozen iMacs were fixed in Fraser's classroom, and a dozen MacBooks were available for booking; but with teachers increasingly wanting to provide pupils with web access, pressure and demand grew. "In January 2010, we started looking for answers," recalls Fraser.
