Using iPads During Math Stations ~ Mrs. Wideen's Classroom Blog

Using iPads During Math Stations ~ Mrs. Wideen's Classroom Blog
I am continually trying to think of ways to use the iPads in a producing or student creation way, rather than a "lets play a game" kind of way. I am also trying to be as paperless as possible this year, so using the iPads is a win, win situation. I share the 20 iPads with another teacher so in all honesty, I only have 10 during math and I usually use 4 with my guided math groups, which leaves me 6 for math stations. My students are partnered up and do 2 stations a day. iPad Domino Measuring Math Station Students will be given dominoes, the "I Can Card" and 2 iPads (one for each student) in their Math Station bucket. iPad Problem Solving Station Students will be given the "I Can Card" and 2 iPads (one for each student) in their Math Station bucket. An organization tip: I have created a folder on the iPads labelled, "Math Stations" that way students know exactly where they find the apps they need. Guided Math Groups With The Teacher

Creating Equation iBooks with Book Creator As you probably read from the last post, I haven’t been around for a bit. However, the past week (before Christmas break) and these first two days have been pretty exciting to watch my sixth grade students assemble their first iBook on solving One-Step Equations. Teaching one-step equations to sixth grade has always been an interesting task, as these problems can usually be solved with mental math. You will meet a little bit of resistance as you clearly show how to use inverse operations to isolate the variable and then show a proper check to verify the solution. This time around, instead of notes and practice, they listened to a few short videos created by our math peer tutors and then set about working on creating a 10+ page book on one-step equations. With over 130 books being finished, I won’t be able to post a viewing of all of them. Tools: halfway into our first year with iPads and these students were content creation kings.

They seem to have some sort of special radar that lets them know when an iDevice is within their reach, and they’ll do anything they can to get their hands on them. Resistance is futile, but instead of lamenting excessive screen time, you can make your child’s iPad addiction a productive one with educational apps, including those that promote early reading. With these 20 apps, children can learn how to write letters, improve phonics fluency, and even write their own books. ABC PocketPhonics Kids can develop skills in letter sounds, writing, and first words with ABC PocketPhonics.

Teaching and Learning: Using iPads in the Classroom Updated 01/2014 If I had thirty iPads in my class, what would I do with them? How would I use them to help my students learn better and help me teach better? Perhaps a better question is what would I do with them that I could not do with other tools that are available and cheaper? Certainly iPads are cheaper than computers, desktop or laptop, and they are more mobile. Speaking of computers, they were supposed to be the transformation of teaching and learning as we know it. Kinesthetic Learners The iPad has a number of unique features that provide for interesting possibilities in teaching and learning. As a completely portable learning tool, the iPad camera allows documentation to be taken to a whole different level. Students can also attach videos, and voice recordings to their field notes. In math class the GPS of the iPad establishes locale in ways that are profound. Connecting Beyond the Classroom How do you use iPads in the classroom to help teaching and learning?

7 Apps That Will Help You Use Your iPad For Writing Projects While each of us has our own particular needs, I’m sure one or more of these apps will serve your needs. So get ready to set up a folder on your tablet and download a useful collection of resources. Evernote At the top of the list, the popular Evernote app (iTunes Store Link) and web syncing service is an essential tool for writing on the iPad. Evernote includes a basic text writing tool that of course also syncs back to your computer or other devices. Infinote Pinboard For brainstorming and clustering your ideas, download Infinote Pinboard (iTunes Store Link). SimpleNote The best free option for a fully fledged writing application on your iPad is SimpleNote (iTunes Store Link), which I reviewed here. Private Journal If you’re a frequent journal writer, the application, Private Journal (iTunes Store Link) works very well for the iPad. While this app doesn’t have automatic syncing features, you can assign a passcode so no one else will have access to your most personal writings. WordPress

Trol (Internet) «No alimentar al trol, por favor», sugiere que no debe reaccionarse ante un trol, que no deben usarse enfoques parecidos que redunden en discusiones interminables e inconducentes. Aviso: «En esta página está prohibido trolear». Aunque originalmente el término sólo se refería a la práctica en sí y no a la persona, un desplazamiento metonímico posterior ha hecho que también se aplique a las personas que incurren en ese tipo de prácticas. Mientras la palabra trol y su verbo asociado trolear están vinculados con una discusión en Internet, los medios de comunicación en los años recientes la han tratado como un adjetivo, y la usan para etiquetar acciones intencionalmente provocativas y acosos fuera de un contexto en línea. A partir de la coincidencia con la palabra que proviene del nórdico antiguo, que designa al monstruo mitológico, se ha amalgamado el significado de provocador con el del ser mitológico, especialmente en un sentido peyorativo. En japonés, tsuri (釣り, 'tsuri'?)

Teachers Guide on The Use of iPad in education iPad is a cool versatile tool that has a huge potential in education. It is widely believed that iPad has started tranforming the face of education and revolutionizng modes of learning. Results coming out of pilot studies on the integration of iPads in the classroom seem to be promising. Reed College, for instance, took the Apple iPad for a spin in 2010 and was pleased with the tablets performance as an educational tool. As part of a pilot program, Roslyn High School on Long Island handed out 47 iPads on Dec and the school district hopes to provide iPads eventually to all 1.100 of its students. Another report shows that hundreds of middle school students in the central San Joaquin Valley, Calif, are using curriculum apps for their classwork and homework. Given this huge importance of iPad in education, let us now go through some of the reasons behind the raise of the iPad star in education and some of the ways we can leverage it in our classroom. 1- Learning with iPad Webliography

10 Important Questions To Ask Before Using iPads in Class Digital Tools Teaching Strategies Lenny Gonzales By Terry Heick When it comes to deciding how or whether to use iPads, schools typically focus on budget issues, apps, networking logistics, check-in and check-out procedures, school and district tech-use policies, hardware precautions, and aspects of classroom management. But it’s also important to think about instructional use, and to that end, consider the following questions. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Also worth considering: How can parents, families, and local businesses be involved in procuring, managing, or integrating iPads in the classroom? These kinds of questions can help you get the most out of the iPad’s use in your classroom. This post originally appeared on TeachThought, where Terry Heick is the director of curriculum.

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.
