Book Creator and the SAMR model This innovative use of Book Creator demonstrates how you can move beyond Substitution to Modification on the SAMR model. Brian Yearling is a former high school English teacher, and is now serving in an Instructional Technology Coordinator role for K-12 education. He runs a blog and podcast dedicated to professional educators across the world at Getting Tech Into Ed. I’m a member of a team of Technology Coordinators and Integrators (including Wendy Liska, Laura Busch, Mollie Heilberger, Dale Van Keuren, and formerly Jim Gonyo) in the School District of Waukesha, located in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

How Teachers Will Start the Learning Revolution | EdSurge News A couple of days ago, Miami-Dade County’s Superintendent, Alberto Carvalho, wrote an impassioned call to action for our schools to embrace the needs of today’s learners and today’s world. He explains, "Children are not widgets, and schools cannot be assembly lines of knowledge." I commend him for this stand and also for the great work so many other districts are doing to build next generation learning opportunities. Developing 21st century learning is a challenge every school and every district must now confront. We have reached the convergence of three critical factors: 1) the world and workforce demands new skills, 2) many of our students have already embraced a digital world already there, and 3) the technology and tools required are now widely available. For any of this change to happen at scale, one critical piece is absolutely critical, but continues to lag - the development of the teachers as practitioners of next generation teaching and learning. This struggle is understandable.

Book Creator Exporting Options Using Google Drive Our sixth grade teacher, Mr. Pratt, a model classroom teacher in our district will be utilizing the Book Creator app for an upcoming creative learning opportunity for his students. As always, it is important to develop/create/understand the work flow of completed project to a sharable format. To understand the workflow I created a Stick Around App book using the Book Creator app. On Monday, November 25, 2013, I blogged about illustrating a Book On an iPad or Online and the Book Creator App for the iPad was a choice. Today, I created a book about the Stick Around App in high school Anatomy and pushed the three different types of final products to Google Drive. This tremendous App Smashing presentation from Miami Vice helped in the process. View The Process My Final Creation

iPad à l’école : avantages et inconvénients Rien ne dure toujours, nous sommes voués à la nouveauté. (Isabelle Chenebault) Au constat de leur retard en technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC), plusieurs écoles tentent de s’y retrouver dans la panoplie des nouveaux outils. En plus des ordinateurs portables et des tableaux blancs interactifs, il faut désormais compter sur le iPad. L’importance du besoin fait en sorte que je ne lésine pas sur les outils de communication et d’apprentissage. L’iPad tarabuste l’éducateur en moi. Un outil didactique possède des caractéristiques techniques inhérentes à sa nature matérielle, ainsi que des qualités pédagogiques contingentes en fonction de l’usage qu’on en fera dans un contexte d’apprentissage. Les aspects matériels et techniques Le rapport qualité-prix Il existe des ordinateurs moins chers à l’achat que l’iPad. Considérons de plus que l’iPad utilise un écran multitactile, certes l’avenir des interfaces numériques. Au coût de l’appareil, il faut ajouter les accessoires.

Guided Reading Choice Board - 1:1 Classroom With second quarter in full swing, and a new reading/language arts curriculum, I am excited to update my post from March on Guided Reading in a 1:1 classroom. My enthusiasm and passion continues to grow knowing the students I teach have limitless possibilities. I am able to individualize and differentiate instruction for each child in my classroom. My fourth graders and I have recently updated our 1:1 iPad Menu in Guided Reading. 1:1 iPad Menu for Guided Reading Click below for a copy of the 1:1 Menu that will allow you to copy and edit as you wish. 1:1 iPad Menu Student accountability is also very important.

Shadow Puppet is a free app that my students love to use during guided reading.

App smashing Book Creator and ThingLink for Video This EdTech specialist took the opportunity to experiment with some cool new video features in Book Creator and ThingLink. Lisa Johnson is the CEO and founder of TechChef4u, an Apple Distinguished Educator, and a mother of two mobile natives. Lisa also serves the Eanes ISD school district in Austin, Texas as an Educational Technologist supporting their K12 1:1 iPad initiative. My mobile native writes a story! Over the summer, my second grade son began writing his “Pirit Story” [pirate]. Naturally, the ease of use and open-ended nature of the Book Creator app was an easy fit for him to digitise his story. Once the images were captured, he began typing the text in to Book Creator, recording the audio for his speech bubbles, and eventually using the camera to add his own narration of the text. While I did demo each step of the process with him once, he was able to add additional media to the book with ease and without additional parental support. Exporting as video

Tips for Using iPads in the Classroom While for some teachers, iPads in the classroom are already a familiar part of everyday life, as of Pearson’s 2014 Student Mobile Device Survey, only 16% of students attended schools that provide tablets 1:1. For all the news stories and chatter in the educational industry about using iPads in education, many teachers haven’t gotten a good look at just what the technology can do for their students. But there’s reason to believe that could well change in coming years. The same Pearson report found that: 51% of students think their school should be providing them with tablets.89% say tablets make learning more fun.81% say using a tablet in the classroom allows them to learn in the way that’s best for them.71% believe tablets help students perform better in class.
