How I'm Using My iPad in a Classroom of 30 Students - Mr. Guymon's Classroom The versatility of an iPad for education is endless. I am no expert, nor even a veteran in curating apps for the classroom, but I am off to a great start for this next school year. Here is how I have discovered using an iPad in the classroom. No, I'm not referring to a 1:1 iPad scenario. I am talking about a 1:30 situation. Skype for the iPad is invaluable for connecting with classrooms around the world. Green Screen Movie FX is an iPhone app that I use on my iPad to create movies in front of a green screen in my classroom. I intend to use Green Screen Movie FX a lot for social studies. Cinch is also an iPhone app that I use on my iPad 2 to create classroom podcasts. Finally, Weebly ! I looked into other websites that many educators use to host thier classroom blogs and webpages, but Weebly had more to offer me. Also, Weebly allows you to create multiple pages.

School iPads: Not a bust—but not yet a boon | eSchool News | eSchool News | 2 “I haven’t seen anything like this in the 10 years I’ve been doing this work,” said Leslie Wilson of the Michigan-based One-to-One Institute, a nonprofit that provides technology guidance to schools and districts nationwide. “Did they have a desired goal beyond the ever-present, ‘We want our kids to be 21st-century learners?’ Why do we want every child to have an iPad? Because it will do what?” Many school districts now want to get their rollouts right from the start and are calling to ask, “How do we prevent going down the same path as these major debacles out there?” In Los Angeles, the district and school board disagreed over whether or not students had been allowed to take the devices home and who was responsible if they were lost or stolen. Other school districts also are learning from bad experiences. The Guilford County school district in North Carolina is delaying a tablet program paid for with a $30 million Race to the Top grant from the U.S. Hard lessons

10 Videos You Could Use to Inspire Writing. From the time teachers first viewed The Piano by Aidan Gibbons on a training course, it suddenly became legitimate to use short independent film to inspire writing. Films like the Piano are perfect for lessons as they are often: Emotive and thought-provokingAesthetic - the animation is often captivating and of high qualityShort and therefore easy for children to take in and teachers to build questioning aroundOriginal – as the children have not seen the film before they do not come at the clip with expectations or baggage. I love finding clips which I use with my class as a weekly alternative to class story. Alternatively I use a well-chosen piece as part of our literacy work for a way into poetry or story writing. I have also found that embedding a clip on our class blog has led to some excellent review writing. Though I have watched these myself and feel they are appropriate to use in class, I do advise you to watch any of these clips all the way through and make up your own mind.

Apps in Education 18 Snapshots Of iPad Integration You know from experience that when you enjoy a subject, learning about that subject is easier, more fun, and you retain the information longer.

Blog Archive » Enhancing Workflow on an iPad Posted by Allanah King on May 17, 2013 At the end of last term I was asked to lead a couple of presentations for the Learning at School Conference Roadshow run by CORE Education here in Nelson. It was the first time such an event had been held in the provinces and was really well supported by locals and from those further afield as well. The presentation that I had not done before was Enhancing Workflow with an iPad- combining apps to share the learning. Here it is below. I didn’t want to just spend the time just talking to the teachers at the workshop I wanted them to talk to each other- to share the learning that they already knew and become teachers themselves. I went down to the local supermarket beforehand and bought a package of the now famous iPad cleaners as prizes and made up a bingo board for each person. I was surprised the number of people who carried on just as eagerly after they had got a prize because they wanted to learn more.
