As a teacher, you can work in groups or as an entire class to create different versions of the same story. Project their creations for others to see. Share final creations with both parents and other students. Everyone will gain a sense of accomplishment once personal versions are completed. I highly recommend Storypanda for both parents and teachers of kids aged 2-10!

8 Studies Show iPads in the Classroom Improve Education

Yes, this is the article. But you know what - if you use the ipad as a doorstop - does it make the classroom better? iPads IN the classroom don’t make it better, I would argue that technology, used properly, can improve achievement. But technology used improperly is like the human voice used improperly -it can harm. Anyway, since this is making the rounds, you might want to take a look.

@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc AirPlay seems to be the best feature to me #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Unfortunately, we won’t know how icloud sync works until they release it. Any beta testers are in NDAs with apple. #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Airplay display mirroring? That’s going to be huge! Any projector companies announce compatibility? #ipadchat


External image
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc we are using it through an appletv for security reasons #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Some videos have shown up on YouTube showing the wireless display mirroring, and it is very impressive. #ipadchat

@MacAppStoreDown RT nathan_stevens: @Eduware_Inc @macappstoredown how will icloud work with textbooks and iPads cloned to the same account? #ipadchat


External image
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc I am putting off the update on my class sets until the end of December. Can’t afford for iPads to be out of service. #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc Here’s Apple’s own overview of the upcoming iOS 5 features and changes. http://j.mp/jDuEMC #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc Any reaction to the announcement of Amazon’s $199 Fire Tablet? #ipadchat


External image
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc 7" device is not big enough. Android has missed their time to get into schools. #ipadchat


External image
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc screen size is import when annotating. #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens True, but what about using it strictly for etextbooks and student response pads? #ipadchat


External image
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc depends on what type of ebooks and how the wireless works the device #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Good point! I think it’s a long shot, but the price point is really going to be tempting! #ipadchat


External image
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc it will probably take a year or two for the app store to catch up. #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens That’s a fair estimate, it would definitely take a while to even come close. #ipadchat


External image
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc that how long it took the iPads to get up to speed. #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens That’s true, and the ipad had a huge advantage, with branding and distribution. #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc That’s all for the #ipadchat today. Tell us your favorite iOS 5 feature and we’ll be back again next week for more.

External image
@mmreesescott Our 1:1 iPad deployment is going pretty well. Few bumps in the road but I guess that is all part of the process! #ipadchat Anyone else?


External image
@Eduware_Inc @mmreesescott is this a school wide or district wide deployment? #iPadChat


External image
@pdxkruse Wondering if iCloud will really be able to work in the classroom with iPads #ipaded #ipadchat - considering adding this to mac/pc products


External image
@Eduware_Inc Have there been any announcements for upcoming educational apps utilizing iCloud? #iPadChat


External image
@mmreesescott @pdxkruse Wondering this to…we manage thru Casper and wonder if this will change things for us. #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc There was also a new iPod Touch and iPhone announced yesterday. Do these hold a place in the classroom? Or is a tablet better? #iPadChat


External image
@mmreesescott @Eduware_Inc Funny, now that we are 1:1 iPad I still have teachers using their iTouches for listening centers in K. #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc @mmreesescott Do you think they’ll switch, or is the smaller form factor more appropriate? #iPadChat


External image
@mmreesescott 1 thing we are still trying to figure out is printing. Stdnts email teachers now and are considering Dropbox. Any suggestions? #ipadchat


External image
@Eduware_Inc We brought this up last week, but what about Amazon’s Fire Tablet? Do we see a future for that in education? #iPadChat

Guide: iPad Wireless Mirroring via VGA

Kathy Schrock over at Kaffeeklatsch has assembled a quick guide on how to setup your iPad with wireless mirroring over VGA. This is particularly useful for mirroring the iPad display to a classroom projector. Schrock states: 

After some discussions with Steve Dembo (@teach42), he told me he had used a device to do this already. I did my research, did some reading, and decided to try it out. The device I used is called the “LinkStyle HD Video Converter” and is available via Amazon.

A couple of notes:
A simple VGA to HDMI connector will not work for this purpose.
For hookup to a television monitor, you may need a pin-pin VGA cable. (The converter box has a port, as does my television.)
Since VGA does not carry audio, you will need a separate audio cable. The converter box has an 1/8" jack (headphone and computer speaker size) for audio out. You can plug speakers right into the converter or use adapters to get it to whatever your audio output device needs.

Free and Simple iPad Lesson Planning

External image

Eric Matas from elearningweekly has shared some advice for creating lessons plans simply, and without any costly investments. 

 

Step 1 — Pages. Pages is the word processing program on a Mac. It is simple to use, like Word. Simply add text, images and video. Formatting must be simple so the epub file can adapt to various sizes when viewed. Still the content can look great, and with multi-media, it reads more like a digital magazine than a book. It helps to make a visual cover page (your page 1) that looks like a book cover. Play around with headers and styles — because these will help the learner navigate.

Step 2 — Epub. In Pages, just click Share > Export and choose the epub option. Check the box that makes your first page the cover art. You will have an epub file in seconds. If you get errors, it is probably related to formatting that epub files don’t support. It is best to keep the formatting simple — let iBooks do the work of making your module look great.

Step 3 — iTunes. On a Mac, just drag the epub file you just saved onto iTunes and then sync your iPad. Like Forrest Gump, that’s all I have to say about that.

In iBooks, your module will have an interactive table of contents — created from your headers and styles. The table of contents works as nicely as a menu in a Flash elearning course. Learners can change fonts or font size to their liking, read portrait or landscape, and bookmark and annotate the module. The video content plays right on the page or can be expanded to full screen.

Each month I use Pimp My Screen to focus on the character trait of the month. This is one way I work to be a more epic person - we are what we think and consider how many times you look at your lock screen a day. I’ll share the full size copies of these if you want them in just a moment. Notice on the lock screen that I added something in the middle to mess with my students’ minds. The charging icon doesn’t change - but it just looks like that and I love it. (It also lets me know if they’ve picked up my ipad. ;-)

I am going to share these each month on Tumblr and Instagram if enough of you want to get a copy and I hope you’ll share yours. Beauty is something that we can create around us and our thoughts are powerful rudders which determine the direction of our lives so we should turn those rudders with intention.
