Why recommend the iPad for schools?

EDUWELLS

ocKids-iPadThis blog is nearly 2 years old and I thought it was time to revisit the reason for its existence. I am still teaching 11 to 18 year-olds everyday in BYOD classrooms (not iPad only) and can claim asignificant experience in the various pros and cons of all types and brands of devices. When I’m considering which students are supported the most in their learning by their device, I still conclude the iPad and its eco-system is my recommendation for handling the full breadth of activities and opportunities undertaken in 21st century schools.

I do appreciate that during the last 4 and a half years it has become fashionable in education to proclaim “the device doesn’t matter” but each week I experience a at least one moment where it does.

10 Reasons why I still recommend iPad

Issues 1 – 5  – Tablet format over Laptop

Smart phones, BYOD, MDM and enterprise user challenges

Rayaz on cars, mobile devices and mobile apps

Enterprise communication and collaboration for many years has been an exclusive Blackberry market, and though Nokia did try with Symbian powered E-series, they could not make much in-road into the enterprise. However how people use phones and the type of phones we use has changed drastically after the advent of iPhone/IPad era, and then the old bastions of Blackberry and Nokia have been brought to their knees when Google joined the fun with the Android Mobile OS.

Recently at work I was handed a small assignment to assist in defining the smartphone platforms to be supported as the organization stepped out from the Blackberry era (finally), and to see how popular MDM solutions in the market supported phone management considering the growing trend of BYOD.

While smartphones and apps may have been new innovation to the consumers in North America until Steve Jobs brainwashed all with the IPhone, North American…

Real Money, Virtual Wallets

Infographics King

Finances are complex.  The average American has a monthly mortgage payment of $1,061; an average utility bill of $163, a student loan payment of $290, a car payment of $428, and a credit card debt of over $4,500.  With these numbers, it’s easy to see why Americans need to utilize budgeting tools.  And in this digital age, it’s easier than ever.  Unfortunately, 55.8% of Americans do not use a website to manage their money, and 72.8% don’t use a smartphone tablet app to manage their money either.  The younger generations, however, have caught on.  Financial management app usage is three times higher for younger adults than older generations.

Use Facebook in School: Facebook Guide for Educators

mattbritland.com

A couple of months ago Facebook published ‘Facebook Guide for Educators’ which I was lucky enough to contribute to. Here is a taste:

“Schools are beginning to use Facebook Groups to communicate with students. This is a very powerful tool for sharing information and collaborating with students from a safe distance. Facebook Groups do not require members to be friends with each other. Members of the Groups can exchange files, links, information, polls and videos very quickly. Anytime someone contributes to the group its member will receive a notification. If you have the Facebook smartphone app these can be pushed to your device. Facebook Pages can also be used to create a central Page for students and teachers to share information”

This is a fantastic document for those who are thinking about using Facebook in their institution or even those who…

School may be out for the summer, but learning never stops.  But what does it mean to learn?  Besteducationdegrees.com has created an interesting infographic on the process of studying and learning-down to the chemical reactions that occur in the brain!

Your brain is a miracle.  Compromised of over 90,000 miles of fibers, this thinker completes thousands of processes a second.  From keeping your heart beating, to recognizing the name of a relative you haven’t seen in a few years-the brain is an amazing thing.

What Does #BYOD Mean for Content Developers? (#mlearning)

Classroom Aid

Everyone wants to go mobile today. But what’s out there is a mobile jungle – besides fragmentation across devices, platform fragmentation is very pronounced, and different mobile browsers. As BYOD(Bring Your Own Devices) is becoming common in workspace and schools, what does it mean for content developers?

Mobile Jungle

At least you might have heard of native apps, web apps (or HTML5 apps for nowadays) , or hybrid apps. Borrowing from Salesforce website, here is a basic categorization: (commonly known options, more details : Native, HTML5, or Hybrid: Understanding Your Mobile Application Development Options)

  • Native apps are specific to a given mobile platform (iOS or Android) using the development tools and language that the respective platform supports (e.g., Xcode and Objective-C with iOS, Eclipse and Java with Android). Native apps look and perform the best.
  • HTML5 apps use standard web technologies—typically HTML5, JavaScript and CSS. This write-once-run-anywhere approach to mobile development…
