Wikispaces padlet ideas reading Padlet – ett favoritverktyg! Häromdagen fick jag en fråga på Twitter om jag hade skrivit någonstans om hur jag använder Padlet i undervisningen och kom då på att jag nog bara beskrivit detta i en artikel om digitala ytor för återkoppling i Grundskoletidningen (nr 6 2013). Därför kommer här en lite bättre förklaring: Jag använder många digitala verktyg för att förbättra och effektivisera redan fungerande pedagogiska metoder och arbetsformer, till exempel ett formativt arbete. Ett exempel är att använda digitala ytor för avstämning, till exempel via så kallade exit tickets. Exit tickets är ett bra sätt att ge eleverna möjlighet att förklara hur de till exempel har uppfattat eller tillgodogjort sig undervisningens innehåll. För mig och mina elever är det värdefullt att de på ett smidigt sätt kan utvärdera moment i kurserna kontinuerligt så att jag kan förändra och anpassa innehållet i dem. Via klickar man på ”Bygg en vägg”.

Kunskapsjournalen - ett digitalt lärverktyg i den formativa undervisningen Kunskapsjournalen är ett digitalt verktyg som synliggör lärandet för eleverna och läraren. Att använda sig av den i undervisningen innebär ett formativt, reflekterande arbete där eleverna systematiskt dokumenterar vad de arbetat med under varje lektion (aktivitet), skriver vad de ska lära sig? (mål/ kunskapskrav), hur de har arbetat (metod), och hur det har gått? När eleverna arbetar aktivt med kunskapsjournalen sker ett medvetet lärande om den egna förmågan, svårigheter och utvecklingsmöjligheter. Kunskapsjournalen har jag skapat via skolans gemensamma digitala lärplattform FCED. (Glawe, 2010)

8 Frequent Mistakes Made with iPads in School 9 Frequent Mistakes Made with iPads in School MISTAKE ONE – Underestimate the power of the iPad Students do not need to be taught how to use the iPad, but rather how to get the most out of it. They need to be taught how they can use it to create and demonstrate incredible things, to share their learning and connect it with the real word, and to promote deeper thinking. MISTAKE TWO – Neglect to make real world connections Most students’ use social media, but not necessarily in a way to learn or to connect in meaningful ways. MISTAKE THREE –The iPad alone will not help kids think deeply Kids need help to find apps that allow them to experience learning in new ways, to think outside the box, and to dig deeper. MISTAKE FOUR – Treating the iPad like a computer When it comes to word-processing – let students use a computer, it is incredibly difficult to format Pages on the iPad and the continual auto spell check can be very frustrating. MISTAKE SIX – Sharing iPads between classes

How to Use Padlet in the Classroom: A Fantastic Teaching Tool Padlet is a versatile, easy to use tool for every teacher’s toolkit. Let’s learn the basics. At the bottom of this post, I have a Padlet that is temporarily open for you to post and share your favorite edtech tools. Richard Byrne, author of Free Technology for Teachers, spent some time teaching the teachers at my school about Padlet. What you can share on Padlet: The box where you type or share your item. You can:TypeRecord Your VoiceAdd a HyperlinkAdd a PhotoAdd a Document The flexibility of this tool means you could have one class Padlet for the year and share resources and links throughout the year. Editing As with many tools the gear icon (as shown in the graphic below) is where you go to edit your background and change your settings. You can customize your Padlet page with a different background, title and more. Organizing Richard Byrne taught me something new today. You can move the Padlet layout to stream. Security and Control There are lots of features you can customize.

Stoodle 23 Things Every Teacher Should Be Able To Do With An iPad Using an iPad is simple due to its intuitive interface, elegant touch interface, and user-friendly operating system. Below we’ve listed 23 different tasks a teacher should be able to perform with their iPad. We’ve tried to focus on the basics, along with some typical tasks a teacher may be required to complete. We’ve also (roughly) arranged them from less complicated to more complicated, so consider yourself an Unofficial iPad “Basic Hacker” if you can get to the bottom. And let us know which important ones we’ve missed below on twitter or facebook. 1. Power button; long press and plug it in. 2. Apple has you covered: “To redeem an iTunes Gift Card or Gift Certificate, click the Redeem link in iTunes, enter the code on the card or certificate into the Redeem Code box on the page, and click the Redeem button. 3. For reference, check Apple’s help page, or Appducate’s page for some troubleshooting tips. 4. And this probably means social media messages, too. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14.

Padlet Now Offers Commenting on Notes Padlet is one of my favorite all purpose ed tech tools. With Padlet you can create a place to collect digital exit tickets, a place for collaborative brainstorming, a place to create digital KWL charts, a place for collaborative bookmarking, and even a place to create a simple classroom blog. My YouTube channel contains a playlist of tutorials on using Padlet in a variety of ways. This week Padlet rolled out a new feature that I think you'll like. You can now allow students to comment on individual notes added to a Padlet wall. The new comments feature can be turned on or turned off by the creator of a Padlet wall (use the modification settings to do that). Applications for Education If you use Padlet as a tool for group brainstorming sessions the comment feature offers a great way for classmates to ask clarifying questions. Learn how to use Padlet by watching the videos in my playlist embedded below.

The iPad as a Tool for Creation to Strengthen Learning By Justin Reich Imagine walking up to a stream. On the far side lies our ideal learning environment — student-centric, inquiry-based, resource-rich — our Someday. A series of stepping stones indicates a way across. These are our Mondays; achievable objectives interspersed across a torrent of new technologies, practices, and theories. In this four-part series, we are using the Someday/Monday concept to explore four dimensions of using tablets, such as iPads, in educational settings. For centuries, a central role in education has been the creation of new content as a representation of understanding. Seymour Papert, the developer of the LOGO computing language, begins his landmark book Mindstorms with a story about gears he played with as a child. One simple way of understanding our pedagogical theory of iPads is that we don’t want them to just become replacements for notebooks and textbooks, we want them to be objects to think with.
