Over the last few years K-12 schools and districts across the country have been investing heavily in iPads for classroom use . EdTechTeacher has been leading iPad professional development at many of these schools and we’ve seen firsthand how they approach iPad integration. While we’ve witnessed many effective approaches to incorporating iPads successfully in the classroom, we’re struck by the common mistakes many schools are making with iPads, mistakes that are in some cases crippling the success of these initiatives. We’re sharing these common challenges with you, so your school doesn’t have to make them. 1) Focusing on content apps The most common mistake teachers make with iPads is focusing on subject-specific apps. 5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them)

Comprehensive guide to the iMovie app on the iPad for teachers & students I have updated my guide for iMovie on the iPad. iMovie on the iPad is in many ways a significantly better application than its much larger cousin on the Apple Mac. The iMovie app is easy to use and after a short time playing around with its features and options one can quite readily create a movie that can be exported to a number of different online services or transferred, for example, via the appropriate USB cable to your computer using iTunes. All I ask is to please acknowledge use of the guide and please link to this page as well. Download the guide.

I asked another class today to share their initial thoughts on the iPads. This class is much more diverse--juniors and seniors, all learning levels--and they've been using the iPads for two weeks. Some of their thoughts... "It consumes/requires less resources and makes it much easier to do tests and also for group assignments. I can't think of any disadvantages other than the fact that it takes a minute or 2 to hand them out, but the timing gets better every class." Season 1, Episode 2 | Those Who Can...Write About It.

Even though these iPads have been in the classroom for over a month, and in the past two weeks my class hasn't started using any new app, I am still taking what my students know (and are comfortable with) for granted. Case in point: Today students who were finished with their theme essay needed to share their document with two other people, copy and paste my revision checklist into the their peers' essays and then read and help the author revise. I assumed students knew two things: 1) how to share a document with their classmate so their classmate could edit the document, and 2) how to copy and paste something from one document into another.

iTunes Course Manager | ourinspiredclassroom I have been playing around with iTunes Course Manager and I am so excited about the potential applications that it is going to have on my class and beyond. Before I get into the process and my experience with creating a course, I’ll start off by saying that I have always thought that iTunes U was one of the most underused brilliant resources available to teachers. I have worked with people, who I would classify as quite IT savvy, who haven’t heard of iTunes U at all! This is where things usually get a little awkward as I somehow morph into an almost Evangelical iTunes U fanatic and go on and on with my spiel about “how amazing iTunes U is” and “how there is so much amazing content available literally sitting there waiting to be downloaded and integrated into classrooms. The content ranges in complexity; from Ivy league universities such as Yale, Oxford, Harvard etc to a grade 3 student’s reflection about a ball game they played in PE. It’s awaiting you!”

10 MORE Things NOT to do in an iPad 1:1 Initiative « Trying to be a mobile Djay At the end of last school year I reflected on the 10 things NOT to do in an iPad 1:1 program. I was blown away with the amount of responses and views the post got from all over the world. It seems that it was at the right time, and right moment for districts out there planning on entering the Fall with a new 1:1 implementation. That said, it’s almost too late by that point to make real swift changes to your implementation. I felt assured we had ferreted out all the little details that make things go astray during this process and hoped by providing a list of the 10 things, other districts could learn from our mistakes.
