Christopher Bounds‘s insight:

I reckon I’ll be able to write my own book this time next year, but maybe I’ll purcchase a couple of these for the rest of us! I particularly like the point he made about buying too many apps… let’s get the basics right first. Evernote to start with, then a word processor, keynote, numbers. That’s a pretty good start. Then something for Maths? iMovie perhaps, to do screencasting etc? You could go on, but how often will you use it? But then, how willing are you to allow the technology to transform your classroom?

Screencasting is the process of capturing the screen interactions on your computer – usually along with an audio narrative. It’s been a very effective method f…

Christopher Bounds‘s insight:

This is just an amazing idea, based on some very sound and existing technology. Feedback is the key to improving students outcomes and this is such a personal way of doing it. Bravo – and it works in Evernote! Another good case for the shared Evernote Notebook.

I have just started my blogging of my school and how I manage the iPads but I plan to try and cover…

Christopher Bounds‘s insight:

Another example of an innovative approach to the printing problem. Mind you, I would argue that we need to get rid of the printers altogether, hence the goal of going paperless in 18 months at our place. If we can get a device in the hands of most students, then what case is there for more than a hundred thousand bucks worth of printing costs per year?

One of the great things I’ve noticed in the last 2 years is how my teaching has evolved with the use of the iPads.  It’s been a gradual shift, but the way I am…

Christopher Bounds‘s insight:

While I haven’t been involved at the classroom level with piloting the iPads, my impressions are very much those of this writer. As long as we focus on the device, or even on the apps, we remain caught in the old paradigm. The opportunity here is simply a better version of what technology has offered us since we first went on line and is no different from laptops and LMS/CMS and all the other things we have tried. It’s all about handing learning choice back to kids. There is still the need for direct instruction, still the need for teacher subject expertise, but the real skill has always been getting kids to choose to learn. I think the iPad is the first device to do that in an unobtrusive, non-problematic and everyday kindof way.

I thought it may be interesting to start a discussion around some of the more innovative learning activities occurring with mobile technology in Math and Scien…

Christopher Bounds‘s insight:

Sam Gliksman is something of a trailblazer in this area and it is always comforting to know that somewhere in the world, someone is facing the same challenges that we are. I suppose my greatest disappointment has been the failure of the UK to lead in this area, because for the last fifteen years they have certainly done all the hard yards on ICT in Education; but I suppose the savage cuts by David ‘We are all Thatcherites now’ Cameron have spelt the death of this kind of innovation on a large scale in the UK. Shame.

I just finished with the backlog of emails I got following the iPad posters post I publish a few days ago. I know my replies sometimes are two to three days late but I also know that you understand…

There’s a whole galaxy of terminology that you should know about when it comes to education technology. From PLNs to Blended Learning to Synchronous Online Learning… it can get overwhelming.

Christopher Bounds‘s insight:

You too could aspire to educational leadership: role up to ACEL conferences and stun them with your terminology. Why get a Masters when you can master all the acronyms?
