62 Ideas For Using The iPad In The Classroom [Presentation] -
If you’ve got a pulse, using the iPad in the classroom is something you’re at least interested in on some level. It’s either why you’re here, something you want to understand better, or you loathe it all and want to make sure to avoid it (it’s been interesting to watch the seemingly growing throngs of Luddites decry learning technology–who knew it all could be so polarizing?) But we digress. Some of the ideas for using the iPad in the classroom in the following presentation by scribd user denag33 are better than others. Projecting an image, making music, controlling your classroom computer, using it as a mini-whiteboard, accessing information, keeping notes, blogging, tracking an IEP checklist, making an impromptu teleprompter, and creating concept maps are some of the better ones. Some of the presentation is a bit janky as well–illegible text, for starters–but the inclusion of both apps and ideas together, along with the sheer number of ideas, made it worth sharing.

For free, teachers can try out new approaches to learning with iPads and Android devices.

6 Great Homework and Study Aids iPad Apps for Students June 20, 2014 Today I am sharing with you a host of carefully selected apps that students can use on their iPads to help them both in the planning of their studies and in their homework.

25 Ways To Use Tablets In The Classroom When I was a kid, I dreamt about our school desks as computer screens. How cool would it have been to be able to draw, write, and learn directly onto my own computer? As the years went on, people theorized that laptops would take over the classroom, but the price of these devices was too high for a 1 to 1 ratio.

While it sounds sleek and futuristic and easy to organize and environmentally friendly, the reality is that paperless classrooms aren’t that simple.

The same with being organized.

20 BYOD Resources For The 21st Century Schools by Hope Mulholland, TeachThought Intern BYOD policies–Bring Your Own Device–allow schools to bring technology into the classroom with a “bottom-up” approach. Such an approach can save money, allow students to use their own devices, and encourage a student-centered approach to learning. Recently we explained that “digital natives or not, technology dropped into the laps of students in schools isn’t always as accessible as it might be. 24 Apps, Games, and Websites Teachers are Using in STEAM Classrooms In February, we highlighted apps, games, and websites that support science, technology, engineering, art, and math learning (STEAM). And we invited educators to write Field Notes telling us how technology supports their teaching in these subject areas. Of the many Field Notes teachers wrote, 24 submissions caught our eye. In them, educators of various grade levels and subject areas explain how they use these tools in their teaching.

iPad uPad wePad; Going 1-1 at St Oliver Plunkett A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be invited to St Oliver Plunkett to be a part of their 1-1 iPad rollout to the very excited Year 6 class. Led by their fabulous teacher librarian, Ann-Marie Furber and fearless class teacher, Brooke Maguire, with consultation from the very dedicated and talented Education Officer Learning and Teaching Technologies, Danielle Carter, the Year 6 class participated in a series of workshops in order to develop their skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

Introducing Mobile Technology Into Your Classroom: Structures and Routines It can be intimidating to try something new in your classroom. This is especially true with technology. I believe that technology should make the work of teachers easier while creating an environment that excites and engages students. Even though I'm coming from an iPad classroom, these structures and routines are great for introducing all one-to-one devices. Have a System (and Expectations!)
