•We received iPads (gen 3) in July 2012


•We have used them in student teaching
classrooms and our education classes at NYU


•We work better with them now but it took

time and collaboration

-

not obvious how to use iPads productively


Much of our daily tech use
is not

on an iPad
.

Internet access can fail and websites disappear

•keep permanent copies of all useful materials

•all of your bookmarks might be dead links one day


Hard storage can fail

•keep multiple copies of hard work across many
devices, and on cloud services


Technology can fail

•know how to use the tools in your room robustly, the
teacher down the hall who helps with everything
might leave one day


prepare for the instant failure of
anything and everything important

done
using the keyboard alone:

opening programs,

opening a new tab etc.


You don't need to aim a keystroke


Windows shortcuts are in Orange

Peripherals

Wireless USB keyboard/ trackpads allow you to
have complete control of the computer from
anywhere in the room


look on
amazon

or
newegg
, usually ~$30 and
also really great for home entertainment
computers and being lazy around the house


There are pocket ones too...










$30+
. Some come with laser pointers

You have a smartphone.

Unified Remote and alternatives

Did you know...
















Telescopes and their cousins, binoculars,

can magnify images, or make them larger













News at the speed of
light.


You can focus or watch the student focus while both can
see


USB cameras and webcams can be hooked up to
SmartBoards and Projectors


ELL's and native speakers alike learn the visual cues for
proper focusing and advanced techniques like fine focus


You already have a camera phone...













NO EXCUSES


Digiscoping for Education

Why bother?

"I didn't see anything!"

"¡No sé qué dibujar!"

"I skipped class when we did that onion thing!"

"I don't remember what was different!"

You have an ipad

I have only one of these iPads

I have more than one student

They all want to use the iPad

NOW.


What do we do?













The core problem

app hunting


Free (demo) apps range from hardly functional to life
-
saving



You may need several similar apps to suit diverse needs.

Look for
robust, flexible

apps


Testing the purchased apps of others also free (collaborate!)



Find iPad apps that are useable on iPhone



Shop around before buying ANYTHING, exhaust all free
options


Keep up on new apps or free weekends, using tech websites,
reddit.com/r/ipad
, App Store, etc.

roles of iPad in classroom

One iPad, one student:

good for individual
enrichment, special needs accommodations,
alternative assessment, wealthy school
$


One iPad, one class:

presenting lessons and
lectures, remote control apps, short demo
passed around, station teaching


One iPad, one teacher:

productivity, email,
google drive, video camera, document
viewer, staff collaboration

Content and enrichment

Biology

Physic
s

General

Chemistry

These applications can be used directly by
individual students. A lesson may require
every student to have an iPad, but a
projector can display one app to the class

iCell




Molecules


Exoplanet


Flashcardlet











EMD PTE



















Free GraCalc

The blackboard of the future


Any app can be thrown on a projector using a
VGA adapter,
$30
, get the right one!


Prezi

is a free zooming and panning, visually
dynamic alternative to powerpoint
presentations


Any notetaking or drawing app can be paired
with a projector via VGA to create something
like a smartboard. We like
SketchbookX
,
$0


Collaboration and Communication

on a phone


GroupMe
-

texting app, free over wifi


can use cellular data or SMS


Multiple rooms, file sharing, picture messages


Google Drive



Sync documents for subway reading


Almost all of the function of the website


How do you think we made this presentation
?

It is tempting to use new expensive technology
mainly for taking pictures of cats




Meet
LouLou :3

or as an expensive paperweight


even though paper does sometimes
need weighing down...

$600 can buy many
posters



We can do better than a
tiny glowing poster

QR and Goo.gl

Easy way to share documents and resources
