iPad As....use to address specific goals
iPads have exploded throughout schools and classrooms. Their flexibility, versatility, and mobility make them a phenomenal learning tool. As teachers seek ways to integrate these devices, we recommend focusing on specific learning goals that promote critical-thinking, creativity, collaboration, and the creation of student-centric learning environments.

The iPad and Maths – Are we there yet? Pt 1 My last two posts on iPads and good teaching have focused on teaching and learning writing. Now I’m moving on to my favorite subject as a teacher – Mathematics. I love Maths – both learning and teaching it. For those who don’t know me ( which is obviously most of you reading ), I am a Primary ( Elementary ) School teacher but I have spent most of my 25 year teaching career also tutoring High School Maths on the side, supporting many children who have missed out on understanding important Mathematics concepts. Maths involves an incredibly diverse range of processes, ideas, skills and concepts. Both children and teachers alike enter into Maths teaching and learning at different levels, depending on their personal experiences, successes and challenges with the subject.

iPads in schools! They just play games! 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: The Habits and Philosophy of an Effective iPad Teacher I recently had the pleasure of connecting up with Richard Wells from Auckland, New Zealand through Twitter. He runs a similar iPad site: ipad4schools.org. I was very impressed with many of recent his info-graphics, and pitched him the idea to collaborate together on this poster. Despite the nineteen hour time difference, we were able to discuss our ideas about what it takes to be an effective iPad teacher.

4 Visual Guides To Bloom's Taxonomy Apps Yesterday, we looked at an overview of the old and revised versions of Bloom’s taxonomy . We talked a little bit about categorizing current classroom activities to see which of Bloom’s objectives you’re addressing (whether intentionally or unintentionally). Today, we’re looking at some apps and web tools that address the Bloom’s taxonomy objectives – helping bring Mr. Bloom into the 21st century. There are a ton of great lists out there that showcase many (many, many) apps and digital tools that address the objectives. Free iPhone App Specials for 2013-03-10 Do you have a kid?

Math-tastic iVocabulary After taking a look at the 8th Math Benchmark Exam and perusing the student data, a few things became abundantly clear: Much of the test involved vocabulary AND successful problem-solving was based on the knowledge of that vocabulary and the ability to assimilate the given terms and information in order to draw an object, produce a table, or complete a graph. While this is not really a shocking revelation (especially to those who teach Math as I did), I instantly began thinking of apps that could support math vocabulary in engaging ways. All of our Math classrooms at Ed White have access to a class set of iPods.

Teacher Experience and Expectations for the 1:1 Elementary Classroom In my last two posts, I detailed the iPad initiatives at Burlington High School. I talked about what we learned after a year of a 1:1 iPad environment and dispelled some myths surrounding iPads in education. Recently, I had the opportunity to connect with two of my elementary teachers at Pine Glen Elementary and Francis Wyman Elementary schools. This year, four first grade classrooms will be piloting a 1:1 iPad environment.

6 Ready To Go iPad Centers A few of the following iPad Centers/Stations I have posted before, however I thought it might be useful to post them again, at the beginning of the year so you know they are here if you want to try something new during your literacy or math block. All of the centers can be done using one or two iPads at the center and are actual centers that my students used last year. I hope you find them useful or they spark new ideas to try with your students. Writing Center: App Needed - Write About This 44 Education Apps For K-6 Open-Ended Learning On The iPad Education apps are helpful for teachers because they refract content through engaging, colorful, and gamified approaches to content interaction. They are also mobile, can offer data, and can be played at school or home, making them useful in a K-12 blended learning or flipped classroom setting. With this kind of flexible utility in mind, it’s no wonder they’re in such high demand–so here are 44 education apps for K-6 students doing the best kind of learning math teachers hate and English-Language Arts teachers love: open-ended learning. Open-ended learning challenges learners to revisit old questions, reflect on their own thinking, and struggle not for the sake of “being correct,” to honor the learning process itself.

I am so excited for a new Mac app called Reflection! 12 Crucial Questions to Ask before Using iPad with your Students iPad is making huge inroads into education and it is believed to have revolutionized the whole concept of mobile learning. More and more schools are, if not already adopting 1:1 environments or BYOD projects , then they are at least debating a future inclusion of this mobile device in the classroom.
