Whether it’s wi-fi or cellular service, being connected to the web is by far the most important feature for iPads in the classroom. Otherwise, it’s just what the tech-bloggers call a ‘brick’ and is essentially worthless. Right? Not really. As you probably guessed from the title of this post and the visual I spent way too much time making below, there are plenty of ways to use iPads that have little to no connectivity.

6 Ready To Go iPad Centers A few of the following iPad Centers/Stations I have posted before, however I thought it might be useful to post them again, at the beginning of the year so you know they are here if you want to try something new during your literacy or math block.

Writing Center: Keep It Simple: With Apps, Less is More Our blog has been a little quiet for a while (okay.. a LONG while..), which I attribute to an abundance of activity, not a lack thereof! A wonderful visit this year by teachers from Iowa, Wisconsin, and Champaign, Illinois reminded us of the importance of documenting and sharing our iPad journey, so the Burley team is making a resolution to post more frequently in 2014.

The 4 Apps Needed To Run A One iPad Classroom If you don’t have the luxury of a 1:1 classroom or even a 10:1 classroom then you might want to sit down. I have some seriously shocking news that you might not be adequately ready to hear. Ready? iPad teaching is NOT about iPads I’ve covered technical and workflow ideas on this blog a lot but it’s time to properly summarise a teacher’s first priority when the kids have iPads. Now here is where I have an issue with terminology… Maybe not an issue of “Pedagogy” (As many know it) Until a few years ago, I would have used the word pedagogy in this post but this now has the wrong connotations for me as it is linked more strongly to ‘teaching’ and not ‘learning’. To many I’ve worked with, the word pedagogy still implies “the way in which I deliver the content to the students” The tiers collapse

What Is Active Learning? Defining "active learning" is a bit problematic. The term means different thing to different people, while for some the very concept is redundant since it is impossible to learn anything passively.
