The iPad Part 1 – some thoughts appertaining to its use in education The Apple iPad 2. I finally got my hands on one about a month ago and since then I’ve been playing, adding and removing apps, trialling them in the classroom environment and generally trying to see if and how I can use it effectively and not just as a replacement for my school PC for administration and showing Powerpoints. The priority for me was to think about how I might save time doing things such as making regular notes, assessment points or learning/ disciplinary incidents. To be able to jot a thought about Student X for his/her annual report/monthly chat would be useful as would the ability to quickly look up previous notes and grades or school policies about how to do things. I’m also keenly aware of the way such technology needs to be used to ENHANCE learning. Onwards to the iPad. The Home Screen Organisation is always key when using handheld equipment such as the iPad. The folders are sorted into what MY feelings are regarding layout and which ones are used more. Other points:

Creation Apps Used On The iPad My technology integration specialist asked me to provide a list of creative apps that we have used in our classroom. All the apps are in our tool box, have been used, or will be used. I have included some of the many videos that show students actually using the apps. I have also included the original post if you would like to read the details surrounding the use of the app. Important! I have two folders with creative apps on my iPad.

Air Sketch Best iPad Apps of 2011 It’s been another great year for the iPad, and for iPad apps. There are now over 170,000 iPad apps available in the App Store (as at 12/21/11). And as Apple’s TV ads for the iPad so nicely illustrate, there are now iPad apps for just about anything you care to do with your favorite tablet device. Great iPad apps play a huge part in making the iPad such a massive success and the leader in the tablet arena. Just as I did in 2010, I’ve tried out scores of iPad apps this year – and once again some are mediocre, some are poor, and happily many are outstanding.

Apple TV in the Classroom « PeorBust For the last 6 months I have been trialling the use of an iPad in school. I have tried as much as possible to do everything on the iPad from producing presentations, editing and uploading movies, emailing and browsing, video analysis, score keeping and even my registers. But the biggest change to my teaching was the introduction of an ATV unit into my classroom. This little black box took no time to install and hooked into the school network easily. Keynote is brilliant with ATV. The teacher can choose from a variety of display options. Another brilliant feature of ATV! Because the school network covers the entire site I could (theoretically!!) Kinks in the armour? There have been a few issues that had to be addressed before the full scope of using ATV can be realised: 1: Most schools in the UK currently use proxy’s on their Internet connections. 2: To connect to the sound system you have to purchase another box of magic.
