Un altro utile contributo da Edudemic ci spiega cosa gli studenti possono fare realmente con un iPad e in cosa può migliorare la didattica:
Online, in workshops, and even with friends, I frequently get asked What can the iPad actually do? as a sort of challenge to the worth of the device. I would rather that they ask, What can you actually do with an iPad?
So last week, in preparing for the New England Reading Association Conference and the NYSCATE Mobile Learning Summit, I decided to change my approach. Rather than structure my presentations by tool, or by app, or even by project, I organized myself around desired student outcomes – aka. what students can actually do.
However, before addressing that question, I asked not only WHY iPads but WHY Technology? Because….
- I want my students to communicate in complex and modern ways.
- I want my students to make their thinking visible as an alternative assessment.
- I want my students to document their thinking as they work through a process.
- I want my students to have multiple ways through which to interact with learning objects.
What does this tangibly look like in the classroom? One English teachers asked where to even begin, so we started with a set of content-specific learning objectives.
I want my students to demonstrate their knowledge of the parts of a story.
Learning Objectives: In addition to learning the story elements, students learn…
- To write a constructive review
- To assess the credibility of an author or source
- To create a sense of visual hierarchy for their information
- To document their sources
Project: Book Posters – students create a movie-style poster to advertise their book. Poster elements must include the title, author, a representative image, a “hook” to get others to want to read the book, a quotation of a credible review, and a student review.
While this could be created on paper, or using a computer, with an iPad and apps such as Skitch, Visualize, or Text Here, students can quickly create, publish, and share their work. By integrating with the Camera Roll, these posters could eventually include audio narration with Fotobabble, be included in a book with ScribblePress or Book Creator, or added to a video project with iMovie or Animoto.
