@Eduware_Inc Welcome to #iPadchat! We’re excited to start today’s discussion on professional development among teachers. Anyone want to get us started?

@SamGliksman @rschast iPads can be shared effectively in lower elem where settings don’t need to be saved. Hard to share in upper grades. #ipadchat

@technology_tim “How do teachers maximize iPad usage in the classroom?” I believe by letting the stu use them is BEST. Stu want are ready to touch #ipadchat


tweet details
@mackward @rschast probably best to share among students, it has more potential as a learning tool than a teaching tool #iPadChat

tweet details
@rschast @SamGliksman Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking. These will be 6-8. I read your blog post about the difficulties w/ sharing. Thx. #ipadchat


tweet details
@Eduware_Inc Interesting! Anyone agree? RT @mackward prob best to share among students, more potential as a learning tool than teaching tool #iPadChat

tweet details
@SamGliksman @rschast I’m working with schools with limited budgets (don’t they all?); sharing 10 iPads b/w 3 lower grades. If needed, it works #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc Here’s one bloggers thoughts on having multiple #iPads in the classroom: http://bit.ly/jj0Ioz #iPadChat

@technology_tim Apple strategy w/ iPad as personal device (indv w/ stu). Now more so w/ iCloud syncing. Edu needs 2B ready 2 except it best as 1:1 #ipadchat

tweet details
@SamGliksman iPad has limited value as frontal teaching tool. Limited also when sharing among students in upper grades. It’s a personal device. #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc So perhaps an important question may be: should #iPad to student be 1:1 or is there a right amount of iPads needed in a class? #iPadchat

tweet details
@euenoconnor @SamGliksman #ipadchat It’s a personal device. – I think that you can use them as a collaborative tool if li… (cont) http://deck.ly/~DJDcD

@technology_tim When we demo edu appliction of iPad (best practices) for our district #CMSk12 we bring 30 iPads w/ us. Best use in hands of indv. #ipadchat

tweet details
@mattdix RT @samgliksman: iPad has limited value as frontal teaching tool. also when sharing among stdts in upper grades. #interesting #ipadchat

tweet details
@SamGliksman @euenoconnor They can be used collaboratively, but limits effectiveness in upper grades when data cannot be cached. #ipadchat

tweet details
@technology_tim I believe there is collaboration when the lesson promotes it, again though the iPad is in the hands of the stdts most. #ipadchat

tweet details
@SamGliksman @Eduware_Inc There’s no “formula” for effective iPad use. It depends on your age level and educational objectives. #iPadchat

tweet details
@technology_tim Collaborative Lesson: Stdts take iPad2 around school/local taking picts. Pictures turned into a group @comiclife #ipadchat Specific 2 Lesson

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc How do you encourage your students to use the iPad during lessons? #iPadchat

tweet details
@technology_tim @Eduware_Inc I’ve never had to “encourage” a std to use an iPad, they want to. It is the GOTO device when they are around #ipadchat

tweet details
@WendyGoodman @SamGliksman there’s also no set # of iPads for effective use – 1:1 can be effective as well as 1:4, 1:6, etc. Depends on funds #iPadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @mattdix We did a project that showed the ipad is a whole classroom to and not as mush a front of classroom tool. #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens Start with collaboration in the classroom with iPads #ipadchat

tweet details
@WendyGoodman RT @nathan_stevens: Start with collaboration in the classroom with iPads #ipadchat > I agree since collaboration is a main 21C skill.

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @euenoconnor using share board or groupboard really help with the collaboration #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @WendyGoodman If you are not using the ipad as a tool that students can work together, you are wasting its potential. #ipadchat

tweet details
@technology_tim That’s one cool thing about the iPad, collaboration is easy, stdts use it and pass to friend to share and discuss. so portable #ipadchat

tweet details
@choesterey iPad very successful 1:1 for our Sp needs students esp those using for communication-decrease in frustration & improved behavior #iPadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc One of the big arguments against the iPad is that it would become a distractor? Those who use them, care to comment? #ipadchat

tweet details
@technology_tim iPads n edu r distracting when there is no clear objective of lesson, but the pencil is a distraction 2 n same situatuion #ipadchat #edtech

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens We still have a couple of minutes left. Have anything you’d like to discuss? #iPadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc If you class is organized around the various apps, then it is not as distracting. #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc With laptops, how many are on facebook, or doodling with a pencil? #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc RT @nathan_stevens: @Eduware_Inc With laptops, how many are on facebook, or doodling with a pencil? #ipadchat

tweet details
@euenoconnor @SamGliksman #ipadchat I am curious as to how you are using the ip@d in the classroom where data needs to be cached.
