Transforming Classroom Practice with iPad Content Integration

I would like to share and ask a few questions from all of you. As many of you know, I am a technology integration specialist and provide numerous trainings on varied educational technologies. My latest adventure with my colleague Dan King, includes the iPad for content integration in the k-12 classroom environment. Here is a link to resources that  we have put together and other documents/resources others have shared with me. http://www.box.net/naomiharm/1/88170086  We are trying find the best possible apps to engage, motivate and enrich a student's and an educator's content/instructional experience in the classroom. By getting your valued input, we thought we could streamline this process in a more efficient and collaborative manner to find the best of the best apps for k12 education.



We are working on putting together the next session of e-handouts for grades 1-3, 4-8, 9-12, STEM and productivity for educators and administrators. I would like suggestions from all of you to share the best-of the best apps for each category through the following Google form. I in return will share out our findings and master iPad collection lists as we have from above. Here is the iPad survey http://goo.gl/Esguy



Lastly, how are using the iPad as a content integration tool in your workplace environment, classroom instruction or daily activities? Would love to hear your stories of how the iPad is transforming your lives and any innovative iPad lessons or units of study.

Cheers!

Hi! We are using iPads 1:1 in our whole school this year. My kindergarten class is seeing great gains in literacy using iPads to differentiate learning. The kids are blogging using Kid Blog. You can see my blog at http://iteachwithipads.net. Glad I found your blog!
