The iPad – A Device To…

    CreatePencils

    Despite Steve Jobs having declared the iPad as a device for consuming media, students at Zeeland Public Schools (ZPS) continue to create engaging papers, presentations and multi-media products to demonstrate their deep understanding of the curriculum. Pic Collage, Story Creator, Corkulous, Scribble Press, Videolicious, Educreations, Evernote, Haiku Deck, and iMotion HD are just a small sampling of the amazing apps students at every grade level are using to synthesize their understanding.

    Consume

    text bookNot only are students creating on the iPad, but teachers are generating their own products for their classes to consume. Apple’s iBooks Author enables educators to create immersive textbooks filled with interactive content that is tailored to meet the specific needs of their students. Similarly, there’s no more skipping around through bulky, one-dimensional textbooks to cover appropriate material for one’s class. Now learners have just the necessary text, images, embedded videos, interactive graphics, and mini-quizzes to check for understanding, all in one digital book. A  number of our teachers have begun using iTunes U as a course management system. The simple design affords an elegant means for delivering course content and assignments that help keep even the most disorganized students on track with due dates.

    Collaborate & Communicate

    Collaboration and communication go hand-in-hand, and the 1:1 technology initiative at ZPS fosters these skills. E-mail and messaging are decidedly the most common forms of digital communication that have bridged the gap between students and their teachers. During class time, students can demonstrate their understanding, or lack thereof, through such Web 2.0 resources as Socrative.com, PollEverywhere.com, and Nearpod. All of these innovative resources enable students to immediately communicate their understanding of what’s being taught, thereby allowing teachers to know if re-teaching is required and with whom. Also, Google Drive and Dropbox make for seamless, cloud-based sharing of content among students and teachers alike. Indeed, increased communication via the iPad has vastly improved collaboration with instructors and learners.

    Critical Thinking

    Pencils 2Metacognition and critical thinking reach new heights as our teachers challenge learners to evaluate their own work, that of their peers, and even that of people in other countries. Analyzing blog posts using Kidblog.org; evaluating articles found on such apps as Zite, Readability, and Flipboard; and researching in the academics-friendly search engine space of instaGrok.com, all make for 21st Century resources that engage higher order thinking. Our teachers actively seek out and model how to use resources that help their students develop creative problem solving skills, guiding them to be life-long learners.

    iPad Integration Matrix

    The iPad Integration Matrix has been adopted from the Florida Center for Instructional Technology  and modified by Zeeland Public Schools to help teachers reflect on their levels of iPad integration into their learning environment. The matrix below mirrors the TIM however, wording has been changed to pertain to a 1:1 iPad environment.  In the future we hope to add short videos showcasing ZPS staff and students participating in various learning activities aligning to different levels on the grid.

    About the Grid:  The columns reflect the various depths of which the iPad is integrated into the instructional setting. Generally speaking, the “Entry” category indicates little use of the iPad/technology to enhance the learning experience while the “Transformational” category indicates a learning experience that could not be possible without the use of the iPad/technology. The rows indicate the various characteristics of the learning experience.

    Levels Of iPad Integration

    Characteristics of the learning experience
    Entry Adaptation Transformation
    Active Learning
    Students are actively engaged in using technology
    as a tool to remember,
    understand, and apply knowledge, rather than passively receiving information.
    Students consume content from an iPad...
    whether it is an instructional video, digital textbook, PPT slides, or PDF files. Teachers are using technology with direct instruction to deliver content in a single modality often resembling a guided note taking process. Simple apps and websites are selected by the teacher and students are directed in how to use it to actively participate in the content discussion.
    Students are beginning to work with the iPad...
    in independent yet conventional ways. Teacher selected iPad apps and tech tools are readily available for student use when the teacher says to use them.  Students know how to efficiently and effectively use the tools instead of needing to be taught the tool. There is a greater student engagement with the content because of the tool and not a greater engagement with the tool because of the activity. Students fluently using the iPad to contribute to the classroom conversation rather than passively consuming content. Classroom environment involves small group collaboration on a limited basis.
    Students have options on how, when, and why to use...
    Different student selected technology tools including the iPad.  Students are focused on and understand why a particular iPad app or feature is used to better their understanding and aid in their applying and analyzing concepts, and help them create authentic content. Teachers provide students with various online resources and research opportunities that support various levels of student thinking.  Teachers encourage active use of technology and facilitates lessons in which students are engaged in higher order thinking skills that may not have been possible without the technology. The learning environment is arranged in a flexible manner that supports multiple ways to collaborate and individualized self-directed learning.
    Constructive Learning
    Students use technology tools to analyze, evaluate, and create new meaning from prior knowledge.
    Students consume content from an iPad...
    whether it is an instructional video, digital textbook, ppt slides, or pdf files. Teachers are using iPads with direct instruction, for example powerpoint slides, or keynote presentations. Students use apps or websites to participate in drill and practice activities. Students are beginning to use note taking apps, mind-mapping apps, or content related apps to help them construct and retain knowledge.
    Students begin to use the iPad independently to...
    construct meaning. Students employ apps and iPad functionality in conventional ways as tools for helping them build knowledge. Teachers begin to design lessons in which the iPad is an integral part of the exploring and constructing meaning of the concept. Students use the iPad as a research tool to gather information, apps to map connections between items collected, and iPad features to share what they’ve learned.
    Students use the iPad to construct and share knowledge in...
    ways that have been impossible without the device. They have a deep understanding of the tools that allow them to explore and construct meaningful knowledge and products. The teacher prepares inquiry based lessons that facilitate higher order learning in which students are for the most part self directed. Students are encouraged to use the iPad and its multiple features in unconventional ways in order to build meaning, including but not limited to researching, organizing, solving, recording, editing, and publishing content.
    Collaborative Learning
    Students use the iPad to collaborate with peers, teachers, and larger community rather than working on their own.
    Students are primarily working in isolation when using the iPad...
    Students may talk with one another while in class but very little collaboration occurs via technology. Teachers direct students in simple and conventional use of the iPad to communicate via email. The learning environment is set up mainly for one size fits all teacher directed lectures. There is little to no peer to peer collaboration physically or virtually.
    Independent of teacher direction, students use the iPad to...
    collaborate with peers in both face to face and virtual settings. Students gain a conceptual understanding of how to use the iPad and its apps to work with others. Teachers encourage students toward the working together and sharing of ideas through such tools as Edmodo, Moodle forums, Google Docs, and social media sites. Lessons, activities, and workspace exist in such a way as to support collaborative student work.
    Students regularly and fluently use the iPad to collaborate and...
    communicate with people and communities that are beyond the school system.  These could include professionals in a specific field, virtual interviews with experts, etc. Teachers seek out partnerships outside the school setting so that students can engage collaborative tools to accomplish higher order thinking that may not have been possible without the technology. Classrooms are set up to foster team work. Student collaboration and participation is a common habit practiced regularly by students.
    Authentic Learning
    Students use iPad to link learning activities to the world beyond the instructional setting rather than working on decontextualized
    assignments.
    Students use basic iPad features to complete and turn in...
    generally unrelated predetermined curriculum based assignments. Students access content and other resources via a teachers website or digital non-interactive textbook. Students use basic apps such as note taking and presentation apps to complete assignments.
    Students begin to use the iPad on its own in activities...
    outside the classroom to help them learn and build meaning. Instruction is purposefully created to engage students in community and world issues. The teacher directs the students as to which tools to use but the students begin to explore other capabilities of the iPad to create meaning and artifacts relevant to their world. The learning environment provides access to information beyond the primary source materials.
    Students extend and explore with the use of the iPad and participate in...
    higher order learning activities that have meaning outside the school setting. Students regularly engage in iPad based projects that may have been impossible without the technology. Teachers encourage innovative and unconventional use of the iPad, apps, and features to aid in building authentic student experiences and products that are relevant to the students world. The learning environment fosters student engagement with the local or global communities.  There is robust access for all students simultaneously and information outside of just the primary source materials
    Data-Driven & Differentiated Learning
    the iPad is used to gather data on student achievement and evaluate progress. Based on this data students are presented with differentiated methods of learning and producing artifacts.

    Students receive direction and feedback from teacher via...
    email or an LMS like Edmodo.  Students work through online sites or apps as a way of reaching a goal and practicing a skill. Teachers use technology to monitor student progress on skills and activities set by teachers.  Teachers provide auditory and visual delivery of pre-determined content in the classroom using the iPad. Students use the iPad to demonstrate their knowledge in a way prescribed by their teacher.
    Students use the iPad to set, manage, and meet their...
    content related goals on a structured yet self paced timeline. The teacher regularly evaluates and adjusts student learning activities and experiences based off instant feedback from online assessments. Teachers employ multiple learning modalities and activities for student learning and remediation. Students are encouraged to learn outside of face to face class time through the iPad. The learning activities allow for some student choice in how they demonstrate what they learn.
    Students engage in ongoing meta-cognitive activities that are...
    self paced and student centered.  Students feel empowered and encouraged to use the iPad in a way that more deeply personalizes the learning experience and gives the student more ownership in their education. Teachers foster a learning culture which promotes multiple modalities for learning and remediation with the iPad, anytime during the day from anywhere the student is. Lessons and activities allow for project based learning that employs the functionality of the iPad and allows for student choice on how they demonstrate knowledge. Students communicate regularly with their peers and teacher about their progress.
    Safe & Responsible Learning
    students use the ipad to learn about and regularly practice responsible digital citizenship habits about everything from communication to digital copyright.
    Students receive instruction about digital citizenship on a...
    limited basis without opportunities to put them into practice.  Students may witness a teacher’s digital uses without understanding why the teacher is participating digitally in that manner.  Students use the iPad in closed systems that limit their need to be aware of their content and conduct.
    Students regularly engage in discussions and activities that encompass...
    responsible digital communication and creation.  Students have an emerging conception of their digital footprint, online safety habits, and the consequences of irresponsible digital use. Students and teachers regularly interact in a digital setting such that their interactions reflect proper communication etiquette. Lessons are planned such that students have the opportunities to display their responsible use of the iPad, intellectual property, and online sites. 
    Students seamlessly and effortlessly use the iPad in responsible ways to...
    communicate online and create digital artifacts that are properly attributed.  Students follow appropriate communication protocols, digital copyright laws, and understand creative common licenses when remixing online content. Teachers foster a learning environment that requires student use of cloud computing and encourages students to create and retain a digital portfolio that demonstrates higher order use of online spaces that would not be possible without the iPad.

    Giving Your Classroom An Online Presence

    We are living in a constantly connected society in which it is becoming increasingly necessary to communicate with colleagues, parents, and students in virtual spaces. One major component in a 1:1 learning environment is an online classroom presence. Teachers can connect with students and parents outside classroom hours. They can post pictures of student work, examples of student writings, and student created digital content for their parents and a world wide audience.

    In Zeeland Public School classrooms this can take on many different forms. Some teachers chose to create their digital classroom using a blog or website, some choose a more academic tool such as Moodle, while others have chosen a social platform like Edmodo. Below are some examples of Zeeland teachers digital spaces.

    Edmodo

     

     

     Edmodo is a great place to host content, connect with teachers and peers, and find out what’s on schedule for the week. Teachers can build and distribute quizzes from within Edmodo that are auto corrected and sync into the integrated grade book. Teachers can upload files/links, and more to share with their students.

    Pros to Edmodo

    Free, 2-way communication, built in safety measures for student communication, parents can connect and view student progress, upload 100MB files, unlimited space for uploading, embed videos & share links, small group collaboration features, connects to Google Drive, supports digital submission of work, integrated quiz maker & grade book, badge system for student progress, & many more!

    Cons to Edmodo
    Can be overwhelming, no blogging or wiki feature, learning curve to navigating and organizing

    Moodle small

     

     

     

    Moodle is similar to Edmodo however it offers more of an academic framework. Moodle is a program that needs to be hosted on a local server. For our teachers that server is located at the Ottawa Area ISD and they are responsible for the up keep of this service. In addition, they provide many great video tutorials to help teachers get their Moodle space up and running.

    Pros to Moodle

    Free, 2-way communication, upload up to 1GB files, unlimited space for uploading, embed videos & share links, small group collaboration features, connects to Google Drive, supports digital submission of work, integrated quiz maker & grade book, dashboard for displaying student progress, integrated blogs and wikis, here is an example school!

    Cons to Moodle

    Not as intuitive to build and navigate for teachers and students, not visually appealing

    itunes_u_logo

     

     

    iTunesU stands for iTunes University and is a relatively new place for teachers to host course content.  Teachers can easily build public or private courses and distribute subscription links to their students so that they can access and download materials. In addition, iTunesU is home to 1000′s of other courses both at the secondary and college level.  If students are looking for additional help or extra curricular subject areas such as iOS programming, iTunesU is a great place to go.  Click here to view the current public courses offered by Zeeland Public Schools.

    Pros to iTunesU
    Free, upload large files up to 20GB of space for teachers connected to an institution, students can download videos for offline viewing, integrated notes for videos, ibooks, and course notes, very easy set up for teachers, automatic push notification for students
    Cons to iTunesU
    Not a two way system for communication, no homework submission, need Apple ID to subscribe to course

    Google-Sitesweebly

     

     

    Websites and Blogs are another way our teachers like to bring their classroom online.  Google Sites, Weebly, and Shutterfly are three website building platforms that offer teachers free and easy ways to publish and distribute content to parents and students.  Below are some great examples of ZPS teacher websites/blogs.

    Pros to Website/Blogs

    Free options, comments to posts can be turned on/off, embed videos & share links, typically easy to build and publish, create multiple pages for different categories, easy to navigate for users, easy to display information, publishes to the world wide web and easy to share

    Cons to Websites/Blogs

    More often a one way direction of communication: from teacher to classroom, maybe limited in size of files uploading, may not be as ‘protected’ for students, may need to be careful of publishing student information

    Using Apps To Enhance The Learning Experience

    Students collaborating on their project

    All along we at ZPS have said that the decision to integrate technology is not about the device. Rather it is about the increased ability of the student to engage content, connect with peers and teachers, and create authentic artifacts that are publishable to a world wide audience.

    The iPad just so happens to be our device and in many ways it allows for all of the above characteristics of a digital learning experience. In addition, the unique applications of the iPad allow for richer, more interactive learning experience that is not possible from a regular computer.

    Be sure to check out our Zeeland Apps page for more details on how to use specific apps to achieve various levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy.  Below is a list of apps that can be used to accomplish various tasks of the learning environment.  content pertaining to using apps in the learning environment to Gather, Organize, Manipulate, Format, and Transmit information.

     

     

     

    Using Student Data To Personalize Instruction
    With iPads in the hands of every student teachers can leverage its ability to gather real time data on student understanding and use this to drive their instructional focus.  There are a variety of ways that teachers can collect data on student understanding.  Below is a list of some apps and websites our teachers use to get instant feedback from students.

    socrative-1d39jjn

    poll everywhere logo

    Nearpod-Logo

    Google-Forms

     

     

     

    The following apps and sites are used by our instructors for mastery based learning.

    braingenie2

    tenmarks150x150

    thatquiz-math

    Moodle small

     

     

     

    On the fly Apps  

    Socrative- is an app teachers and students can use to push out multiple choice, true/false, or open text response questions and get immediate feedback on their answer. This helps students form their understanding of concepts and allows the teacher to intervene in real time to support student learning. Teachers can choose between teacher paced and student paced quizzes. In addition, teachers can set up quizzes ahead of time or create questions on the fly.  Quizzes can be set up to be self graded and quiz reports can be sent to the teacher after the students have taken them.

    View tutorial on Socrative.

    Pre-made Online Assessments

    There are many premade online assessments that can be used by teachers to gauge student comprehension.  Among the many sites our teachers use,  Braingenie and Tenmarks are the most used. Both of these sites allow for the teacher to select standard based strands to quiz students. They both provide embedded video tutorials to support student learning. In addition, teachers get a dashboard view of student progress displaying data on individual student performance.

    Mastery Based Learning

    In addition to using websites with premade quiz questions there are many sites that allow teachers to create and distribute their own online assessments. Some of the more popular ones among our teachers are Moodle quiz maker, Edmodo quiz maker, and Thatquiz. These online assessments can be used for Mastery Based Learning.  In other words, students would need to prove they have mastered the content of the current section before moving on to the next topic.

    Publishing Content To An Authentic Audience
    Being connected to the world wide web students are no longer submitting work for just their teacher to critique.  Now students have the ability to write a paper or post and publish it to an authentic audience around the world and get feedback from multiple perspectives.  
    Inquiry And Project Based Learning

    Project based learning (PBL) is a strategy that approaches learning through research and inquiry around global issues, solving real world problems, and creating authentic artifacts that are meaningful and relevant to a larger audience. The iPads, and technology in general, lend themselves to the research, exploration, and creativity necessary to project based learning.

    Mike Fenlon, physics teacher at Zeeland East High School, participated in Ottawa County ISD iChallengeU summer program last year. It was during this summer institute that Mike became passionate about PBL. Since this time he continues to refine and share his expert knowledge of PBL by helping staff and putting on workshops with the Buck Institute of Education.   Needless to say Mike’s science classes are much more orientated around Project Based Learning these days.  Some of the projects his class have done are “The Physics Of Sports”, “The Physics Of Cartoon characters” and as pictured in this video “The physics Of frequencies In Wind Chimes.”

    Ben Braymer’s 5th grade class has been taking on a Placed Based Learning project around the retention ponds located just outside their playground boundaries. Below is a direct quote from Ben’s blog post describing the project.

    “I have always wanted to do something with Quincy’s wetland ponds.  I read a book this summer called “Place Based Education” which was about getting kids involved in real world projects that directly improve their local community.  I thought our school was the perfect place to start.  With help from our Service Learning Coordinator, and many others we have a pretty cool project planned this year.”

    Our quick plan is as follows:

    1.  This fall dig and put down stone for a short wetland walking trail.  The kids call it Q.N.I.T. (Quincy Nature Interpretive Trail).

    2.  Over the winter we are planning to design the information signs along the trail, incorporating ecosystems, wetlands, and various other applicable information from our fifth grade curriculum.  We would like to have some prototype ideas to get quotes from local printing companies and have them printed and installed in the spring.

    3.   The building trades students at the high school would like to help us build a small outdoor classroom with a water testing deck.  This is a big wish at this point, but I am hopeful.  They will build it in May, and it would complete the project for this year.  I would like to have a ribbon cutting ceremony on the last week of school and have the kids officially hand the outdoor classroom and trail over to the Quincy Community.
    Mr. Braymer’s students have used the iPad in many ways including researching ecosystems, writing up summaries of what will appear on signs, and creating commercials.  Check out how they are learning about business, marketing, and the economy. View post.

     “If anyone can loan us your wheel barrel, a shovel, and stone rake, please bring it to school.  
    We would like to spread some stone this Friday near the end of the day.”
