A Workable Model for sub-1:1 iPad Use The iPad is designed to be owned and not shared. It is a personal device. This isn't Apple screwing you over or ripping you off. It's just the way it was designed. If you want a multi-user operating system, Mac OS X will do a fantastic job for you. I remain a strong advocate for 1:1 and I believe that it is transformational to the educational experience. What I want to do here is save sub-1:1 schools and teachers a lot of wasted time and heartache trying to pretend that iOS is a multi-user operating system when it isn't. When looking at the iPad, it's important to break out of the old mindsets. Let's call this model "thin slicing", where each pupil gets to use an iPad for an hour or two a week. iOS has no such clear distinction. I'd like to propose a better model, that we can call "chunking". When you're deploying iPads to the same pupils for 8 weeks, it suddenly becomes a lot more feasible to reconfigure those devices for those pupils. What are the benefits?
Testeando - El trivial educativo para colegios Preparing Your School for an iPad Implementation Planning is imperative for any technology initiative - iPad or otherwise. You need to ensure that you clearly understand and communicate how the technology integrates with your overall pedagogical objectives. Too many institutions purchase technology and then search for ways to utilize it ... or leave it collecting dust on the shelf. Planning needs to consider both infrastructure needs and the educational applications of the new technology. Campus Infrastructure Considerations Signal Strength: If you’re using wifi iPads then you’ll need a strong and reliable connection to the web. Pedagogical Considerations: Pedagogical Models:Have you discussed how the use of iPads will be integrated into your educational processes?

Las mejores aplicaciones de iPad para profesores y alumnos La primera vez que cae un iPad en tus manos, te maravilla su pantalla táctil, su navegación y los vivos colores de sus libros y revistas. De hecho normalmente se considera el iPad como un tablet elegante para consumir información digital, más que como un medio para editar y producir contenido.

How the iPad Wants to be Used I've recently had the opportunity to email, Skype or visit with many schools interested in the iPad. One theme that keeps cropping up is a misunderstanding of how the iPad wants to be used. I don't say that with any malice or contempt whatsoever. It may seem odd, offensive even, to veterans of the PC age to be told what your computing platform "wants". I speak to a lot of schools who envisage the iPad in the roles that PCs formerly occupied. That's not how the iPad is designed and, it seems to me, the iPad is an extremely uncomfortable fit for those roles defined in an earlier era. The iPad is an intensely personal device. The idea that you can use an iPad without leaving a data footprint on the device is not outright wrong, but such an approach to this device will either lead to confusion or a lot of time taken up with "restoring" iPads back to known-clean backup images. This requires a re-think in school budgeting too.
