MindShift | How we will learn How BYOD Programs Can Fuel Inquiry Learning The opportunity to extend access to technology in the classroom and at home is enticing, but school districts can get hung up on important details like providing a strong network, making sure each child has a device, and questions about around distraction. Of course, no one answer will work for all teachers or students, but one guiding principle that’s shown to work is for schools to focus on how mobile technology will help shift instruction to be more collaborative, learner-driven and inquiry-based.

I’ve been using my iPad a lot recently, in preparation for my new, hands-on iPads: Perform, Create, Learn professional development course and have been running a number of apps through their paces.

Poetry is one of the arts that many students struggle with. I always found that providing a initial successful learning experience was the best way to instil both confidence and foster engagement with my students. Here are a bunch of apps that would allow a student to get their teeth into writing some poetry and for those that struggle an opportunity to see just what they are capable of.

Music apps – a music teacher’s perspective « Brave new world Music apps – a music teacher’s perspective « Brave new world As I’ve already mentioned before, I’m in the process of investigating iPad apps for learning enhancement in the classroom. A few weeks ago a colleague and brilliant music educator, Stuart Collidge, joined me in a meeting with our Deputy Principal (Curriculum) and a few other leaders in the school, to put forward a case for the use of iPads in the school, specifically for learning enhancement.

iPad and Technology in Music Education I am very interested in a few conversations I have had with people in the past month about their use of their iPads/iPods. I have some great suggestions for anyone using an iOS device…. First thing… you will have to do is set up an iTunes Store account (which is the same place you will go to get apps, music, movies, podcasts, books and even access iTunesU)- This way you can actually get to the fun stuff and download a few apps!
