There is More to iPads in the Classroom Than Apps
In a previous post, Evaluating Apps with Transformative Use of the iPad in Mind, I describe my ambivalence about teacher asking my for the “perfect” app to teach this or that. I have teachers ask me frequently about app recommendations for different subject areas.“What app could I use to teach subtraction?”“What app would you recommend for my students to practice writing?”“I want to use iPads in my Science class. What app is good for that?” In a recent article, titled ” How the iPad Can Transform Classrooms” by Ben Johnson on Edutopia, raises awareness of the difference between using the iPad as a way to teach students versus the iPad as a tool to learn for students. The lesson planning questions I hope my teachers will learn to ask will change from “How can I teach this content?” He calls for the paradigm shift in seeing the iPad as a TOOL TO THINK WITH: images used with permission from Andrea Hernandez @edtechworkshop You can download all four images as a pdf.
