iPad Technology in the Classroom
Transcript of iPad Technology in the Classroom
Do your research! Most apps and websites will tell you what they offer in terms of privacy and safety. Technology has become a huge educational phenomena and this can influence teacher effectiveness. This new push for technology use in the classroom has allowed many teachers to find creative uses for common technology. iPads are one outlet for this creativity.This PD is aimed at enhancing student learning by helping teachers to find new ways to engage students. New iPad/iPhone Feature Worried about students not following directions on which app to use?
Guided access can help!
http://www.apple.com/ios/whats-new/#accessibility Students with Disabilities http://edudemic.com/2012/12/iphone-apps-for-students-with-disabilities/ iPads on Smartboards Strategy! Student Safety & Privacy Purpose There is a VGA connector cable that can allow for iPads and iPhones to be connected to a larger screen. This could be valuable for students to see models of what they are expected to do, or for presentation uses. In case you were wondering... I created this presentation using prezi.com
It is a free presentation creation website that allows you to create amazing and dynamic presentations.
These presentations are easy to create as well! Many studies have been conducted into classroom technologies and the results have been positive. One study found "the interactive learning environment resulted in improvements in student performance compared with the traditional instructor centered learning environment" (Enriquez, 2010, p. 83).
Enriquez, A. G. (2010).
Enhancing Student Performance Using Tablet Computers. College Teaching, 58(3), 77-84. doi:10.1080/87567550903263859 Did you know you can connect your iPad or iPhone to your smartboard? This connector is called an "Apple 30-pin to VGA Adapter". It can be bought in the Apple store or from the Apple website.
It can be used with following Apple products:
iPod touch (4th generation)
Universal Dock via the dock connector
The connector allows you to mirror videos and presentations onto a larger compatible display. Link to product on Apple store website:

This connector does have many disadvantages that you need to consider before you buy. It has a rating of 2.5 out of 5 stars.
What you need to know:
According to a review from PCMAG.com, there is a list of apps that are supported for use with the connector. The website did their research and found that, "Apple says the VGA adapter works with the following apps: Keynote (when playing a slideshow), Videos, YouTube, Photos (when playing a slideshow of photos), and Safari (when viewing video content from YouTube, Vimeo, FunnyOrDie, and other video sites)".
Another drawback is that the connector only for visual mirroring. If you connect your device to your smartboard, you cannot use the secondary touch interface that your smartboard regularly allows you to do. For example, you can't use your smartboard pen to open a projected app on your device.
A last warning, if you are watching videos, you will have to use a different cable to boost the sound from your iPad or iPhone. This cable does not link sound. Connector in Action! My source for more info on using this cable in the classroom:
