How can you improve motivation in Math? Here are some great ideas to share with the math teachers who just say kids “aren’t interested” and “don’t want to learn.” Change something, do something. (via The 4 Apps Needed To Run A One iPad Classroom - Edudemic - Edudemic)
A nice SAMR chart from Richard Wells that shows a simple demonstration about moving through the model of introducing technology. This helps understand the process using an example.
For the first time ever, Apple sold over $1B US to the education market.
The iPad has a 94% market share. Remember when people woudl ask
“Why are you using an Apple?” Ahh..good times.
From the article:
Helping along the company’s education program is a trend toward tablets in the classroom. The devices are being used by a number of school districts around the U.S. as a tool for learning, with teachers able to create, distribute and curate curricula via iBooks Author and other iOS device management software. One school system in the Netherlands has replaced traditional textbooks with the iPad, along with other Apple ecosystem products.
It was reported only one year ago that the iPad was definitively replacing PC sales for educational institutions. The company has made significant progress since then.
When asked about low-cost offerings from competitors like Google’s Chromebook, Cook seemed to dismiss the idea that those devices were a threat to Apple’s push in education.
"We see Chromebooks in some places," he said, "but the vast majority of people are buying PC/Mac or an iPad."
Apple’s chief executive seemed quite pleased with the iPad’s performance over the past three months, noting it accounted for 94 percent of tablets in education.
"It’s sort of unheard of," Cook said. "I’ve never seen a market share that high before. So we feel like we’re doing really well here, and feel great to be making a contribution to education."

Wow- Apple’s market share in education is astounding! 94%
A nice graphic PDF with links for teachers who have just gotten ipads. From iCloud to the SAMR model of using ipads, this graphic is concise and helpful.
Very interesting tool to use for your classroom that sort of turns your ipad into a document camera/ presenter tool. It has already won several awards in the Apple app store. You might want to take a look at this if you’re 1:1 ipad as an option to get rid of document cameras or not buy them at all. Very cool
This app is Life Noted and merges camera, video, notetaking and more. It was recommended to me as a notetaking/ capturing tool for observation in the classroom by teachers of students, but I think that anyone evaluating another person might benefit from this sort of tool. Capture your notes and the speech about the notes and share it. Very interesting idea. It is free right now.
This handy set of tips for the iPad is one to share with students and teachers who are just getting their device. There are many great pointers from arranging apps to syncing and tweaking fonts. I use the autotext feature a lot as it can save time typing long text. Pass it along.
I”ve been hearing a lot of great things from teachers about Book creator as a new way they have students create reports. Called, Book Creator, children can create pages, send them to their teachers and then the teacher can put them together further.
Nearpod is a cool app that many teachers in 1:1 ipad programs are using in their programs to keep screens in sync, assess, and teach. If you have a 1:1 ipad program, you want to test this one.
