EduFlections | a teacher's stories and stories of teachers Introducing School-Wide Digital Citizenship Practices with iPads An elementary school in our district recently got 30 iPads and asked for some advice implementing them with students and teachers. In addition to suggesting some starter apps, I recommended that we have conversations with kids around the appropriate use of these devices. While almost every child has used an iPad, iPod Touch, or iPhone, the exciting learning opportunities these mobile, Internet-connected, media creation devices create also open the door to new challenges. Cyberbullying or inappropriate web publishing happens more through the camera than regular computer use does; the mobility of the device combined with the reality that multiple users are using the device with no personalized, password-protected, network-tracked accounts makes it more challenging to keep track of who is doing what with the device or that the device itself is safe. Rather than tell the students how they should and should not use iPads, I felt compelled to involve the students in the conversation.

Home - The iPad in the Classroom projectbasedlearning » Clint's Tech Integration Resources I’ve been asked to present what students are doing with technology at the K-16 Alliance Meeting in St. George this week. With my co-presenter, Dr. Deb Hill from SUU, we’ll be discussing what technologies and apps are being used effectively in the classroom these days, and show some example projects that ANY student could create. The examples that I’ll be showing have come from the work we’ve done on the TEAM Grant. iPad Curriculum How to use AirDrop – iOS 7’s most important new feature for teachers When Apple announced Airdrop this past June, I knew it would be a great feature for teachers with iPads. A common complaint about iPads in the classroom was that it wasn’t necessarily easy to transfer student work in the Camera Roll to the teacher. With no USB connection and no SD card slot, how was a teacher supposed to collect student work? Email would work for small files, but videos were much too large to send. Dropbox could be a solution, but that would require students to set up their own accounts, problematic if they are under a certain age. Enter AirDrop, a seamless and very quick way to transfer files via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections between “nearby” devices. To send a file via AirDrop, both devices must have iOS 7, and have both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on. In my testing, photos were shared instantly, while videos just took a few seconds, depending on their length. Applications for AirDrop in the classroom Airdrop is unfortunately not available on older devices. Like this:
