iPads for Administrators: Communicate, Collaborate & Connect - live

  1. 1. Chris Casal P. S. 10 Brooklyn - NYCDOE Twitter: @mr_casal iPads for Administrators: Communicate, Collaborate and Connect ASCD 2014 - Session #1311 Presentation Materials
  2. 2. P. S. 10 New York City Department of Education public school Park Slope vicinity, Brooklyn ~950 students Pre K- 5th grade 38 classroom teachers, 8 clusters, 6 related service providers, 2 coaches, 2 administrators fully connected via iPads, laptops, desktops, Google Apps & Dropbox...
  3. 3. Think before you print… Communicate Collaborate Document
  4. 4. Forget the iPad for a minute Any device, any form factor You created the printed page in digital form first, just keep it that way
  5. 5. Communicate Don’t use the PA system... ... get to everyone without disturbing anyone...
  6. 6. The old standby Email & distribution lists How very 90’s of us Lists for every constituency It may be “antiquated” but it still works
  7. 7. New media broadcast School, teacher, administrator blogs & sites Twitter disseminate quickly & succinctly staff, students, parents can follow over 30 staff members on Twitter Skype, Google Hangouts/Voice, Remind101, etc
  8. 8. Collaborate My mailbox is a scourge... ... my head (and heart) is in the clouds...
  9. 9. Don’t fear the cloud You’ve been using it for decades, you just haven’t realized it
  10. 10.
  11. 11. Benefits Access files anywhere no more flash/thumb drives no more bulky folders/binders of paperwork Multiple app integration Share files and folders for easy collaboration
  12. 12. DROPitTOme Free online site for submitting files to Dropbox Set up custom URL for Dropbox submission Not an iPad app but a great way to extend the collaborative capabilities of Dropbox Web based - $Free
  13. 13. Options, we love options* Dropbox Google Drive Box Cubby iCloud - if you’re 100% Apple it might be the way to go SkyDrive/OneDrive (Microsoft’s cloud) WebDAV - school hosted/controlled server FTP - like the 70s it’s retro but works *disclaimer - this slide intentionally crowded to prove a point… there are a lot of options in the cloud
  14. 14. Be flexible The notion of “one tool to rule them all” is a fallacy ! Huge DropBox fans but Google Drive is improving rapidly We are transitioning to Drive iOS 7 “Open In” flexibility the best tech development of recent memory
  15. 15. Document You teach & observe in real-time, why shouldn’t your notes, reflections, and feedback be just as timely?
  16. 16. Replace the pulp Paperless observations, anecdotals, plans & grades Instant save yourself time Paperless save yourself time & money Collaborative save yourself time, money & confusion
  17. 17. Paperless
  18. 18. But what if things delete? What if you spill coffee on your grade book? ! You can drop your iPad in the river and still access your data. Can you do the same with your traditional notebook? (an actual conversation I had with @mskertesz)
  19. 19. Paperless Don’t fear it, embrace it Use the cloud to tie together your existing digital tools Adjust your thinking send the file to the iPad, not the printer The printer is quaint and quaint isn’t cutting it in 2014...
  20. 20. And in the end The printer is a paperweight... ... the iPad is your public address system... ... and your printer... ... and your notebook... ... and your camera... ... and your audio recorder... The iPad is your paperless notebook & the cloud is your file cabinet. Connect face to face while staying digitally connected…
