EdTechTeacher : The iPad as

  • reader,
  • creator,
  • student response system,
  • classroom manager,
  • study tool,
  • organizer,
  • differentiator.

A really good starting point for iDidactics! On the EdTechTeacher Website https://edtechteacher.org/index.php/teaching-technology/mobile-technology-apps/ipad-as is a list of 15 teaching objectives  using iPads in classrooms and beyond the classroom, starting with

"I want my students to...

  • read...
  • annotate...
  • create...
  • comment / blog...
  • use the iPad as a study tool... / students are able to do....

...and 10 more examples.

Those 15 teaching objectives are matched with several iPads APPS :-)  As I said, a really good starting point to reflect the iPad-classroom regarding teaching objectives and learning outcomes. It seems that this matrix is more or less done for indidividual learning. What we now need is a more explicit matrix for collaborative learning.
