What we learnt from our first year with the iPads
benefits issues scenarios ideas useful apps
responsive monitoring quick access to individual support tools cutting the umbilical cord
Device limitations: Ss distracted and sidetracked with manipulation of apps lack of charger lack of iPad lack of app grogginess
Handling instructions: getting whole class attention not on the same page hard to see if on task: angle, dimming
Students personal iPad use: gaming social networking watching football, movies pictures, incoming messages/reminders esp. during transitions break time activity lag addiction to non-educational uses of mobiles
You want to start the lesson. Some students have their iPad on and are doing various games or social networking. Others have their iPad off.
All of the students should be working on the same task. However, three students keep flipping back to the game app that they are involved with.
The students should be using various apps to complete a group task. However, one team member is spending most of her time social networking.
One student doesnt have the app you need and doesnt seem to be able to download it.
You strongly suspect that a student is gaming in this lesson but you havent caught them at it. Every time you go near them they have the task on their screen.
