Using collected datas Guest Post: 10 Great Ideas for Using iPads in the Classroom | teachingwithipad The iPad isn’t just a great tool for reading your e-books or surfing the web while you’re waiting for your plane. It is a powerful and sophisticated piece of technology that can help teachers connect with students and facilitate learning in the classroom. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of great apps that can help you to teach lessons with the iPad, and there are many other ways the iPad can serve as a useful tool. 1. The iPad is the perfect tool for making presentations – either the presentations you give to the classroom in your lessons, or the presentations that students make when they have projects due. 2. Presentations aren’t the only thing you can use the iPad to display. 3. If you are lucky enough to have a few iPads for your class – or, luckier still, to have one for each student – you can use them to facilitate group work. 4. It can cost a lot of money maintaining textbooks and keeping them updated with the latest versions. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Bio: Further reading: Like this:
3 Ways To Use Data In The Classroom The phrase “using data to drive instruction” is showing up everywhere in education circles lately. Particularly with the incorporation of the Common Core State Standards, and new standardized tests and teacher evaluation systems, the way that teachers use data is becoming more and more important. But what exactly does it look like in the classroom? And how can technology help make the process more manageable? Using data in the classroom doesn’t have to be as intimidating as it sounds. Take a Poll Online polling systems are an excellent resource for teachers. Clearly, my students wanted to review using topic and concluding sentences to connect ideas. I was able to project student responses and use them to help students see what effective topic and concluding sentences look like. Use a Quick Quiz to Drive Instruction There are many digital tools that make quick formative assessments much easier and more effective. Use Formative Assessment Data for Immediate Intervention
The Secret To Successfully Using iPads In Education My brother recently built a shelf for my daughter’s room. It is in the likeness of a boat that she will one day spend sunny afternoons on, cruising around Plymouth harbor. He used a saw, a hammer, glue and other assorted tools that I couldn’t explain or name. I am not a carpenter nor am I skilled at building anything with my hands. However, I do know this. When my brother started the project, he did not pick up his hammer and get inspired, engaged or motivated. What do hammers have to do with iPads? 30 Hammers Or 30 iPads Granted, if we were to offer a set of 30 hammers and 30 iPads to a classroom full of students, we all know which tool they would choose. Tools are not inspiring, engaging or motivating. Collaborating with ones peers, problem solving and ultimately creating something to demonstrate ones capabilities or unique understanding, that is engaging. Increased Engagement Myth Certain they will be engaged with the options that an iPad presents to them. iPads Don’t Teach
15 Technologies That Were Supposed to Change Education Forever Gotta give them credit, they were pretty much right on the money in most cases. 1. Electrified Books at the Turn of the 20th Century - "machines that translated books into audio" - Audio books. 2. Gyroscopic Cars in 1912 - "distance will be annihilated with the rise of new transportation technologies" - Pretty much true, even if not via gyroscope cars or pressure tubes. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. iPad Invading Classrooms The pace of change is accelerating everywhere and one of the primary drivers of that change is what I call the “digitization of everything.” Every industry is being impacted – and most in some pretty significant and often severe ways. Schools aren’t keeping pace with this level of change – nor are they preparing young people for a world that is radically different from today (which is radically different from just a few short years ago). Add to that the trends in mobility and you’ve got a perfect storm. Here are a few of the key trends showing how these forces are impacting schools IT spending is up: The Center for Digital Education estimated education spending on IT reached $19.7 billion in 2010-11 and it’s expected to rise again in 2011-12. The iPad is playing a big role in this transformation – and with the introduction of the iPad Mini we should expect to see even greater adoption. “Kids are the experts on the technology,” Soloway says.

Back to School with iPads: 5 Steps for the First 5 Days School is just about to start, or has already started, and you have been armed with iPads for this year. Whether your students will be 1:1 or you have access to a handful of shared devices, the expectation now exists that these tools will be put to good use. So now what? How do you get started? What can you do in the first five days of school to get going on the right foot? 1. Students will be excited about using iPads from the beginning. Shaelynn Farnsworth (@shfarnsworth), a high school English teacher from Iowa, provides her students with a set of expectations on the first day of school.

The Teacher's Guide To Badges In Education What encourages students to do well in school? Often, it comes down to grades. Many students will work harder in order to earn a higher grade. Colleges want to see good grades. Parents want to see good grades. Grades are good, right? Unfortunately, some students are not motivated by grades. Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts Boys and girls in the scouting program earn patches for three things: progressing through the scouting program, attending a special event, or accomplishing a specific goal. The patches are a source of pride to the scout who earned them, and they are a way to show off what they have accomplished to others. The values of every organization change, and when that happens new badges are created to encourage members to gain those skills. The Use Of Badges In The Military The Scouts’ use of badges was borrowed from the military which has been utilizing badges for hundreds of years.

Project Based Learning with iPads Bringing learning to life – Bringing Life to learning! To start with, I think Project-based learning is the future of education. It puts students into real situations where they have to: Act professionallybe a team playerunderstand their assigned roleStick to deadlines as a teamProblem solveProject manageCommunicate ideas … I could go on for a while here! Photo by USdagov These are the skills the world, employers, charities and universities are crying out for, far more than any specific content schools might have traditionally taught. Fortunately, I don’t have to cover PBL in much detail as there are a number of sites and Youtube channels that do it brilliantly, especially EDUTOPIA and BIE. Here’s Edutopia’s introduction: Just one Important distinction! Project-based learning is not ‘doing projects’.

Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling By Sam Gliksman The following is the first of a series of excerpts from Gliksman’s book iPad in Education for Dummies. The digital aspect of storytelling raises the art to a new level of experience. The emergence of technology and digital media has resulted in some significant departures from the traditional role of storytelling in education: Stories have become media-rich experiences. Reading and writing remain crucial educational components. When you think of storytelling from a traditional perspective, you might conjure up any of these images of Danny Kaye telling a story to a group of children seated on the ground; a kindergarten teacher reading a book to a group of young students; a parent reading a bedtime story to a child. Then we reached the information age. Students are becoming producers of knowledge: digital storytellers who use technology to express themselves. Students traditionally produced a product for an audience of one: their teacher. Related
Le maître a-t-il perdu le monopole du savoir ? « Quelle est la probabilité pour que mes étudiants aient déjà tapé sur Wikipédia le sujet de mon cours ? » se demande Michel Serres avant chaque amphi. Cette question, confiée lors d’un entretien à Libération en juin 2013, résume le bouleversement introduit par le numérique dans la relation entre le professeur et l’étudiant : le maître a perdu le monopole du savoir. À l’ère du numérique, l’étudiant ne dépend plus de son professeur pour trouver des informations et accéder au savoir. Les savoirs et les compétences Les répercussions de ce bouleversement ébranlent considérablement la fonction transmissive de l’enseignant, jusque-là centrale, et avec elle, les fondements de toute la pédagogie traditionnelle. De la classe inversée... Avec le numérique et la prédominance de l’enseignant comme guide, on assiste au retour en force de la pédagogie active, inversée et collaborative, qui place l’étudiant au cœur de l’enseignement. …à l’inversion des rôles
