The apple ipad storyboard

  1. 1. The Future of Classroom Technology
  2. 2. The Apple iPad Space and Convenience. What is the need? While the iPad can be used for the internet. It still needs a computer to operate, however there are an infinite number of useful applications to download. Applications allowing you to operate specific programs without actually carrying the extra weight.
  3. 3. Research….. The researchers at Apple began to develop their product in 1993 with the Newton Message Pad 100.
  4. 4. Development Problems: Developed before the iPhone, the project was put on hold when it was realized that the product would work as a mobile phone. Audience: Anyone who likes to keep up with technology.
  5. 5. Commercialization.  Production  iPad is assembled by Foxconn, which also manufactures Apple's iPod, iPhone and Mac Mini, in its largest plant in Shenzhen, China.  Manufacturing  Apple does not disclose the makers of iPad components  MARKETING  Particularly marketed as a platform for audio and visual media such as books, periodicals, movies, music, and games, as well as web content.
  6. 6. A Timeline of Events  Ipad released on April 3, 2010  Apple had to push back the start date of international sales because of the high demand in the U.S.  Sales topped 2 million by June 1 2010  Sold 3million iPads in the first 80 days.  Profits jumped 78% this year.  Incompatibility with Flash
  7. 7. A Timeline of Events  New applications and lower prices expected for 2011  Walmart began sales of the iPad online Friday the 15th of October  October 28th Verizon and AT&T will begin selling the iPad  iPad selling at triple the pace of the iPhone.  Expected to generate global sales of 12 billion this year.  By next year worldwide units sold will increase to 55 million over the current 20 million, and by 2014 figures should reach 208 million. With North America expected to consume 61% of those sales.
  8. 8. Adopter Categories How do you label the innovators, from the early adaptors, the early majority, late majority, or laggard when there appears to be an almost immediate consumption of users for an innovation before it even turns one? It is with my best attempt that I will try to categorize these groups
  9. 9. Adopter Categories  Innovators: Those who were the soldiers who waited for the stores to open on the first day in an attempt to be the first to own an iPad, because they already had the iPod and iPhone.  Early adaptors: All those who caused the delay of the iPad in the international market because the demand was so high in North America.  Early Majority: Those who are waiting to receive theirs for the holidays.  Late Majority: Consumers waiting for the additional apps and lower price expected in 2011.  Laggard: The naysayers who feel their iPod and iPhone are enough.
  10. 10. S-Curve  It is expected that the iPad will have amazing growth in the next few years, but it should also be assumed that other companies will produce their version of the tablet computer to retrieve sales that were lost.  If indications of the first two products (iPod, and iPhone) are any indication of the future of iPad. The attempts at producing a similar products will be met with much resistance.
  11. 11. S-Curve chart
  12. 12. Why would the decentralized approach work for the Ipad? The U.S. Department of Education does not yet impose uniformity among all schools and school systems. Local systems determine the requirements of their district. Innovation can be piloted through specific schools. Informal evaluation can be provided from the pilot school and necessary adjustment made prior to diffusing into districts or nationally. It can be adapted locally for the ends of its’
  13. 13. Key Change Agents As with most of the innovation that have been adopted among teachers, the key innovators will be the teachers who already tend to learn new technology quickly when it is introduced to their schools. Teachers tend to gravitate naturally towards innovations as their usefulness is demonstrated by early innovators.
  14. 14. Change Agents as linkers  Who will facilitate the flow of innovations? Teachers ○ Teachers will be able to bring attention to the need. ○ Teachers have rapport with the students and parents ○ Teachers have the ability to analyze problems and determine alternatives. ○ Teacher know how to motivate interest. ○ Teachers can stabilize behaviors through reinforcement. ○ Teachers create independent learners
  15. 15. Teachers as Change Agents  Studies have indicated that when teachers believe technology uses are valuable, they are more likely to incorporate those uses into their practices.  Based on these findings, professional development activities should emphasize the potential impact of specific technology uses on student learning.
  16. 16. Teachers as Change Agents  Specifically, research has shown that access to technology, a supportive school culture, and adequate Time for teachers to explore educational use of technology are essential for successful technology integration
  17. 17. A Need for the iPad  School systems purchase core curriculum books for all students.
  18. 18. School systems purchase core curriculum books for all students.  A typical middle school student needs a minimum of four books  Books need to be repurchased as material is updated and curriculum standards are changed.  The value of books decline quickly, but must be repurchased as new when more students enroll, books are lost, stolen, or damaged.  Books downloaded onto the iPad would...  Save money on the cost of purchasing material.  Can be updated with the most recent versions of the book instantly.  Cause less physical strain on students, who generally had to carry several large books
  19. 19. A need for the iPad  Students are not given adequate opportunities to use technological tools
  20. 20. Students are not given adequate opportunities to use these technological tools.  Students occasionally used word processors and the Internet, and they rarely used spreadsheet, presentation, or database programs in their learning.  Ipads could connect more hands on use of technology for students.  The iPad can connect to the internet and give students access to functions used on computers.  Student could have side by side access to books, videos, calculators, voice recorder, or anything else related to technology in the classroom.
