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!

SchoolNet South Africa Conference Reflections

Well....I am back, back after being gone for a week of travel and presenting in Bloemfontein, South Africa to present at the national SchoolNet SA Conference. I was thrilled to be asked back for the third time by good friends Gerald Roos and Janet Thomson from School Net.

It is always an adventurous journey to travel to South Africa, as there is no direct flight of how to get there- but the longest part of the journey is the flight from Atlanta, Georgio to Johannesburg, South Africa of 17 hours. The total air travel and airport exchanges take about 24-30 hours one way.  So.... yes I am one tired girl today, but I have a few days to catch up on my sleep and acclimate back to the 7 hour time change.




Upon my arrival to the Bloemfontein, South Africa I was greeted by the most lovely Janet Thomson, Executive Director of SchoolNet, who assisted me with my transportation to the hotel we would be staying at, and to also preview the venue of the conference location. This year's conference wa…

Reenergize and Refocus This Summer- Change Your Mindset!

It has been a whirlwind of a month already and it is only June 3rd. It has been an amazing week working with my Intel family in Phoenix, AZ. The experience to design, create and contribute to the greater good of the future of education has filled my edtech bucket. I am so very thankful and grateful to Vanessa Jones, Theresa Maves, Anne Batey, the entire Big Monocol team and Lars Lindstrom's video crew as a collaborative team we worked on an incredible upcoming video segment to support a game-infused learning series of online coursework. Cannot share any more at this time- but this content will be a game-changer of how we deliver ongoing professional development in the education world. 
Working with inspired educators and incredible talented videographers has truly grounded me again this week, knowing that there are individuals in the edtech industry that constantly give 200%, never complain and contribute to a finalized product that will impact so many in so many countries worldwi…
