iTeaching: The New Pedagogy (How the iPad is Inspiring Better Ways of Teaching) On that magical day when you got home from the iStore, peeled away the plastic shrink-wrap and opened up that white box to reveal the gadget that would change your life, you very likely experienced a moment of anger or confusion over the absence of a manual to tell you what to do. As you know by now, this was no accident. Here’s why: Apple made the iPad so intuitive and easy to use that almost anyone could pick one up and start using it right away.Because the iPad is touch based, you are encouraged to get hands on from the start. You learn by doing – literally – engaging different parts of your brain as you go. You have to let go of the mentality of reading the book before you go out and try. Giving you a manual would very likely diminish the personal enjoyment of learning about the iPad.

This post was inspired by the #ipadagogy hashtag I came across recently on Twitter. Here’s how: We need to hide the ‘manual’. Switch it on, play, customise, tinker, collaborate, personalise and learn! iPadology -It’s All About Your App-titude! iPad for Learning & Teaching Workshop. iPads in Education- Examples from the Classroom.

Clearly there is a lot of buzz around iPads in schools at the moment. You can’t log on to the Web without reading about another school or entire district or department investing massive coin in a sparkling set of the Wonder Tablets, excited that they will cure all the ills of the current education systems around the world. From reading my blog, you would be no doubt convinced that I am very much in this Pro-iPad camp.

Make no mistake I am. However, no matter how versatile and potentially powerful a product the iPad is, it is merely an extremely expensive placemat without creative, well planned teaching behind its use. Its about Teaching and Learning, not iPads The kind of shift in learning the iPad (and other tablets) can initiate is dependent on good teaching practice and preparation. So let’s look at how we have gone about teaching up until now and examine how the iPad can fit in to our current programs. NEXT POST – Writing. True learning is creative! … iPad, please! | IPAD 4 SCHOOLS. The iPad empowers students to create products within any subject context, physical space and even on the move. This is why the iPad is so important in transforming education into a genuine learning experience, not a knowledge absorption space.

This well known Ken Robinson video has, for a while, indicated the importance of creative process in learning. Creating is important because during the process of creating something new, a student is: the owner of that processfully immersed in the experiencegenuinely engageddriven by and personally connected to the learning objectives Under these four circumstances, you create truly life-long learners, who are intrinsically motivated by their own demands and ideas.

The classrooms of today are far from what most of us would consider traditional. In addition to the lack of chalkboards and the abundance of high-tech devices, many classrooms even conduct their lesson plans entirely online–giving whole new meaning and accessibility to education at several different levels. This practice is often called distance learning , though the process involved is anything but distant. With online learning media and education tech tools, learning experiences become more engaging and interactive than ever before–allowing students to be truly in control of how they send, receive and interpret information.

This practice of layered learning comes with multiple studies to support its efficacy; these studies in turn are helping propel the application of this teaching technique in schools across the country.

After spending two hours a day this week watching seventh graders fill in bubbles on our state's standardized test, I am finding myself thinking about assessment. Specifically, I am thinking about the many ways the iPad has enriched and strengthened our daily assessment practices -- and the value I see in authentic, embedded, process-rich assessment that informs and improves instruction.

Technology like the iPad offers incredible ways to gather meaningful data that shows student thinking and creates a rich and detailed picture of learning. It can also make assessment more efficient, save teachers time, and open opportunities for more responsive teaching. The iPad makes new assessment practices possible. First, just being able to hear a student explain his or her thinking is a transformative event. As I explained in an earlier post, the camera also adds a new layer to the assessment process. Other web 2.0 tools can help teachers gather critical assessment data. Developing the Use of Pupil Blogging Through the Use of a Class Learning Wall. Context When we knew that we would be using iPods in year 6 on a 1:1 basis we began to plan and discuss how best to maximise impact.

One thing we immediately recognised as being central to all of our work was the development and frequent use of a blog space for each pupil. In preparation for this we decided to divide up classroom display boards into equally sized sections and allocate a space to each child. This became known by the teachers as the “Learning Wall” and by the children as the “Class Wall” and its purpose was to allow pupils to experiment with presenting work for an audience, to develop a sense of ownership of a publicly viewable space and to develop skills in giving and receiving relevant and valid feedback. Other examples of our Learning Walls can be found on our pupils' blog ( How it works E-safety Maintaining that the pupils stay safe online is paramount.

Courtesy: maconstate.edu With so many schools adopting the use of iPads I find it strange that we aren’t hearing more about the incredible opportunities available in iTunes U . Well I suppose it isn’t that strange given that schools in the early stages of transitioning to an iPad platform are extremely busy and learning one more thing can seem overwhelming. Trust me, I understand that, but I believe if you were to learn one more thing it should be about the power of iTunes U.

The possibilities of this incredible tool are endless. The first and likely most exciting benefit of iTunes U is the multitude of incredible classroom resources at your disposal. When I think of the potential of iTunes U, the first thing that comes to my mind are the incredible communities that developed around SMART board users. An important consideration to think about is that the individuals creating these courses are cutting edge classroom teachers. Solar System Ecosystems Underground Railroad Presidents IT Weekly.

The iPad is not going to replace teachers or ‘fix’ education. There is a cost implication that must be taken into account and only an educator will know if it is right for their students. Indeed the cost-benefit analysis for an establishment must take into account a host of factors when considering iPad use in the classroom. However, if there are iPads in the classroom, there are a number of applications that can enhance learning and assist the educator in developing student skills. In fact, the iPad allows educators to build on existing styles and increase flexibility in their classroom whilst personalising learning.

Assessment for Learning The most valuable weapon in an educators arsenal is feedback. Applications such as eclicker, Socrative and Nearpod have the ability to provide instant feedback for every child in the classroom. Collaboration Practical Use These are a few of the applications that have been made a little easier by the use of an iPad. iPads in schools! They just play games! | IPAD 4 SCHOOLS.

20th Century pedagogy + iPads = Gaming So, you’re in your classroom and annoyed that the kids are playing games on the iPads. You have devised a strategy and at random intervals, you ask them to double-click the ‘Home’ button to see the last apps used. Great! Well done on controlling the situation so they can get on with: writing their notes;Reading their e-textbook;completing their essay or‘Researching’ on the Internet. The only step forward you’ve really seen is the ability to use that Shakespeare app or Dissecting Frog app. The parents too, have complained that all they seem to see is game playing and maybe your school is considering limiting the apps allowed on the devices.

Apple’s education-related announcements yesterday will no doubt bolster the trend, making faculty tools and student textbooks more engaging and accessible. But today another data point emerged, demonstrating that the iPad can be a valuable asset in education. In a partnership with Apple, textbook publishers Houghton Mifflin Harcourt performed a pilot study using an iPad text for Algebra 1 courses, and found that 20 percent more students (78 percent compared to 59 percent) scored ‘Proficient’ or ‘Advanced’ in subject comprehension when using tablets rather than paper textbook counterparts.

The study was conducted at a Riverside, California, middle school from Spring 2010 to Spring 2011 using HMH’s Fuse: Algebra I app. Similar pilot courses and iPad programs have cropped up all over the country, primarily in private and boarding schools, and select universities.
