iPad vs. the Rest• iPad• Andriod• Microsoft• Readers
iPad is not a...• replacement for the computer• replacement for the laptop• textbook• gaming console
iPad is...• All the above and more...............• reader, writer, researcher, musical, artist, engineer, note taker, calender, clock, movie maker, audio recorder, gamer, etc, etc, etc.• If you have a need "Theres an App for that"!
Why?• I will access up-to-date information - you have a textbook that is 5 years old.• I will immediately know when I misspell a word – you have to wait until it’s graded.• I will learn how to care for technology by using it – you will read about it.• I will see math problems in 3D – you will do the odd problems.• I will create artwork and poetry and share it with the world – you will share yours with the class.• I will have 24/7 access – you have the entire class period.• I will access the most dynamic information – yours will be printed and photocopied.• I will communicate with leaders and experts using email – you will wait for Friday’s speaker.• I will select my learning style – you will use the teacher’s favorite learning style.• I will collaborate with my peers from around the world – you will collaborate with peers in your classroom.• I will take my learning as far as I want – you must wait for the rest of the class.• Abilene, Kansas High School Dialogue Buzz
Be Relevent!• Go to their world• Use their language• Its their culture• Individualize their learning• Allow them to own their education• Become life long learners• Create good habits
I Want Them....... Now What?• How many can I use?• 1 can be used as an individual or small group work station. Students rotate in to use it.• 2 -10 can be used in the same way. Seperate activities can take place.• 11 or more depending on class size can be used in pairs or individually. This allows for the most diverse use of the ipad.• 1 to 1 iPads can allow the student to be the most independent user. The activties could allow the students to research and choose the tool/s that would allow them to complete the learning objectives in a way that suits them best.
Instructional Delivery• The number of iPads available will greatly determine your instruction delivery.• Totally teacher guided. (used most with low numbers or first time users)• Small group activities can be used with small numbers and specific activities.• 1 to 1 use can be used for projects that require highly individual outcomes.• I believe the goal would be to achieve a 1 to 1 environment.

Setting Up the iPadI believe in an open environment (network). Of course this is greatly determined by age, but we should teach them smart responsible learning habits as quickly as possible. If given reason enough not to risk losing the technology, proper behavior will prevail.If you have a choice I believe the iPad should be open enough for students to be able to install and delete apps. They should be able to enter their email address as well. This will allow them to discover apps that are best suited to their needs.With that said......................
Setup Considerations• How to assign to students (keep records)• Checking history, apps used, etc.• Wireless (capacity)• How to connect• iTunes account• App installation allowed• Email setup allowed• Printing available (wireless printer)
