iPads in Your Classroom

ipadapp
“Powers of Minus Ten,” an award-winning iPad app that allows students to explore human biology down to the molecular level.  

As you may have heard, ATIG has 41 iPad minis (and a few full size iPads) available for you to borrow for up to a semester for use in your course.  This may lead you to wonder — how could I use iPads to enhance student learning and engagement?  A good way to approach this idea is to analyze the iPad use as you might any other learning activity.  And a good basis for that analysis is with reference to Bloom’s taxonomy.

Luckily for you Teddy Hristov, ATIG’s Senior Instructional Strategies Specialist, recently attended a program at the Teaching Professor Conference in which specific iPad applications were associated with the various levels of Bloom’s taxonomy.  This handout provides some examples, but is certainly not exhaustive.

You might use this approach by deciding what level of the taxonomy is appropriate for your students, and then selecting an associated app.  For example, if your students are ready to Create – the highest level of the revised taxonomy – you might choose to have your students use the iPad tool “Explain Everything” to create an original instructional module on a topic.  Or, you could have your students use “Book Creator” or “Creative Book Builder” to write and publish their own book about a topic.

Are your students are at an earlier stage of their learning, where finding strategies for Remembering key facts and concepts is essential?  Here, you might choose applications that help drill students on their knowledge, such as ChemPro: Chemistry Tutor or Timeline Civil War, or a more generic tool such as one of these flashcard apps.  You could even borrow them to use with a polling application to test your students’ Understanding of key concepts.  

ATIG staff are here to help you identify and evaluate apps and work with you to craft iPad-related assignments that will offer your students meaningful educational experiences.  Contact us for more information!

  22. Hello, this weekend is pleasant in favor of me, since this point in time i am reading this impressive informative article
    here at my residence.

  23. Perhaps this is the largest distinction between the two phones.
    The iPhones comes having a 2 Megapixel camera, which in this very day and
    ages is…well…not good in any respect. Its merely
    horrific. For all the engineering it comprises Apple could only can get a 2
    Megapixel digicam on that. To make things worse the cam does not even choose plus
    movies, which practically leaves it worthless. Almost every fresh cellphone which comes away that has
    a camera has video recording technology, and this to me
    is an enormous let-down by Apple. So that you can import movies about that, then again,
    the iPhone nevertheless allows movie the all important video play.
    But like things Apple you’ll have to locate yourself a convertor to transform your average mpeg to your i-phone mp4, which again is because this could
    confine the simple at which you add videos about it, another disappointed by Apple.

  24. When someone writes an post he/she retains the idea of a user in his/her mind that
    how a user can understand it. So that’s why this post is amazing.
    Thanks!
