@Eduware_Inc Welcome to the #iPadChat live! Today we are keeping an open ended topic, anything goes. #mlearning #ipaded #slide2learn

@dhudgins RT @coolcatteacher: Integrate Dropbox with Pages, Keynote, and Numbers on iPad and iPhone | Techinch http://t.co/cOVXhKz #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc Last week we discussed games in education, does anyone have any suggestions? #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens I like stack the states and stack the countries. #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc #iPadChat Reference: Stack the States $.99 http://bit.ly/hHyQoH and Stack the Countries: $1.99 http://bit.ly/fR1C1t

@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens I haven’t tried those yet, what age do you recommend for them? #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens Both apps have lite version if you want to try them out #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc Great suggestion! RT @nathan_stevens: Both apps have lite version if you want to try them out #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens They are for Grades 1-12. May even work for a K. #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens Lunchline is a good app for younger students on making nutritional choices. #ipadchat

@tvallier @Eduware_Inc Do you think there is a place for physics based puzzle games in the classroom? i.e. Angry Birds et al? #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens Let’s create ! Pottery HD is works well for Art class. #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens Angry birds needs some additions to it to work for a class room. Maybe add angle degrees to it. #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc #iPadChat Ref: Lunchline $.99 http://bit.ly/qvtDzJ Angry Birds $.99 http://bit.ly/9At1xg Let’s Create Pottery $.99 http://bit.ly/oFp9dh

@tvallier @nathan_stevens Are there any other physics based games which could be used with an edu spin? #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc RT @tvallier: @nathan_stevens Are there any other physics based games which could be used with an edu spin? #ipadchat

@eSparkLearning One of our teachers’ favorite apps is Pizza Fractions! Great for elementary math #iPadChat @Eduware_Inc

@nathan_stevens Newton’s Law ? #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens I agree Pizza fraction is a very good app #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc #iPadChat Ref: Pizza Fractions FREE http://bit.ly/obXuPl

@tvallier RT @eSparkLearning: One of our teachers’ favorite apps is Pizza Fractions! Great for elementary math #iPadChat @Eduware_Inc

@Eduware_Inc @eSparkLearning Great suggestion! and FREE too! #iPadChat

@betavt Looking for ideas how to evaluate iPads in school. Any creative ideas out there? #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens I am using this form to collect data and working on another http://bit.ly/pxlRcM #ipadchat

@tvallier @betavt Are you referring to evaluating students, or evaluating hardware? #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens I have another on my blog to collect data on the hardware side #ipadchat

@tvallier @nathan_stevens That form is view by permission only. #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Do you have a link to any of the results? #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens We have not posted yet, want to collect 3 semesters worth of data #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens I look forward to seeing your results! #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens Forgot that it was private to only receive student data through the forms app #ipadchat

@tvallier I’m seeing lots of game apps being made for younger users, are there any games that appeal to the older kids? #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens For older students, they should be creating not playing #ipadchat

@betavt I don’t see apps as the reason for iPads. Some might be helpful, but not the drivers #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens The app changes to device to what you need it to be. The apps drive the use of the ipad. #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens Without the vast app store, the ipad may as well be a droid. #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens Come on Google Marketplace, get it together #ipadchat

@eSparkLearning @nathan_stevens I agree- the apps allow for personalization of each iPad to suit individual students’ needs #iPadChat

@tvallier @betavt Without apps, do you see a place for the iPad in education? #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens @betavt Way to stir the pot #ipadchat

@tvallier iOS has two components: Dashboard, and apps. Mail, safari, and even system preferences are all apps that run on the dashboard. #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens It won’t be long before most computer OS will have the same look and design. #ipadchat

@betavt They do, but answering complex questions is what the classroom is all about. Not about apps. #ipadchat

@betavt I do. I keep reading articles and postings about the next tablet that will replace the ipad. Still waiting. #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens The apps are the means to help drive the discussion in the classroom #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens @betavt I like to HP touchpad as the true competition for the ipad #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens Androids still have a lot of work to do on standardization and security of the OS #ipadchat

@tvallier The apps are meant to enhance the classroom environment, not get in the way or replace it. #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens I’ve heard good things about the touchpad. Have you tried one out? #ipadchat

@betavt Anytime, anywhere learning with the world in your hand is my vision for ipads in the hands of students. If apps fit, great #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens @tvallier The same statements have be used for desktops, laptops, ipad touches and whatever else in the classroom #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens @betavt That is the brilliance of having the information in an app, can access anywhere and anytime #ipadchat

@betavt Touchpad is just like an iPad. The iPad is going to disrupt, to borrow form Clayton Christensen. #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens I typed a tweet with laptop in it, and good several tweets about winning a new laptop. Funny. #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens @betavt That is what we want. to disrupt and create new solutuions for the classroom. #ipadchat

@J3ro3nJ RT @coolcatteacher: Integrate Dropbox with Pages, Keynote, and Numbers on iPad and iPhone | Techinch http://t.co/cOVXhKz #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc @betavt Are you referring to disruption on a micro or macro level? Could you elaborate? #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens Both, web 2.0 sites disrupted the normal flow of the classroom. #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc #iPadChat: Must Visit Links August 3- August 10 http://tumblr.com/xbp40jgkxk #iPadChat #slide2learn #edu #edtech #mLearning

@nathan_stevens We went from a setting that had laptops lids closed during teaching to now wanting students to back channel in the classroom #ipadchat

@betavt @Eduware_Inc both. Instr, with PD, will change dramatically. Schools will too. Kids will not power down in school anymore #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens The ipads are the same approach. We are moving from keyboard and mouse entry to a finger base entry #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens @betavt We live in a world that will not let you power down. It is always trying to catch up. #ipadchat

@tvallier @nathan_stevens When the students backchannel, is the teacher participating, while lecturing? #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc #iPadChat Reference: “Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns” C. Christensen http://amzn.to/pCAa2g

@betavt Students can be back channeling with the teacher also. Observed a tcher use this model while watching a film once, great convo. #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc @betavt That’s a great way to backchannel! #ipadchat

@betavt Observed a principal use back channel for subject area mtgs. The entire faculty participated. #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc @betavt Was it successful? #ipadchat

@betavt @eduware_Inc very, we have also used for district inserivce to share ideas #ipadchat

@betavt Ipads can help with creativity – less exposure to the “creativity killing machine – school” to qoute Zhao #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc Alright everyone, thanks for another great #ipadchat! I’ll have the archive posted later today!

@Eduware_Inc Our Free ClickerSchool Virtual Clicker app recently went universal to all iOS devices. Give it a try here: http://bit.ly/n2YgGD #ipadchat
