  4. 4. Ballpoint pens will be the ruin of education in our country. Students use these devices and then throw them away. The American virtues of thrift and frugality are being discarded. Businesses and banks will never allow such expensive luxuries. -Federal Teacher
  5. 5. Why the iPad?
  6. 6. What is Average? “Options are essential to learning, because no single way of presenting information, no single way of responding to information, and no single way of engaging students will work across the diversity of students that populate our classrooms.” David Gordon, 2011
  7. 7. Making Differences Ordinary If inclusion is to be successful and students with disabilities are to be part of the learning community, there must be a fundamental change in the general education classroom so it is accepted that not all students will learn the same things, in the same way, at the same time. (McLesky & Waldron, 2000)
  8. 8. What’s the goal?
  9. 9. There’s NOT an app for everything!

We need to have transformation at the core of what we do as teachers, if it is all about the students. Don't jump into learning outcomes, activity design and choosing technology without first reflecting on graduate attributes and capabilities then how to improve motivation and engagement. Miss these and your course design will be weaker for it. Please visit the blog post and listen to the podcast episode at: “If you exercise these capabilities.. you will be employed!” Standing on the Shoulders of Giants This Taxonomy wheel, without the apps, was first discovered on the website of Paul Hopkin’s educational consultancy website mmiweb.org.uk That wheel was produced by Sharon Artley and was an adaption of Kathwohl and Anderson’s (2001) adaption of Bloom (1956). The idea to further adapt it for the pedagogy possibilities with mobile devices, in particular the iPad, I have to acknowledge the creative work of Kathy Schrock on her website Bloomin’ Apps The Padagogy Wheel by Allan Carrington is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License.
