12 characteristics of an ipad ready classroom
12 Characteristics of an iPad ready classroom!

Curriculum is…

  • Adaptive (less rigid)Learning pathways, embedded differentiation and personalization, culturally and cognitively responsive tasks and work that honors constructivist thinking and doing over passivity and compliance

  • Dynamic (less static)Having constant access to constantly changing information and media requires a curriculum that is equally dynamic

  • Digital (less physical)Promoting blogging, collaborative project-planning via apps and cloud-based suites, digital presentations through apps like Prezi, curating of complex digital portfolios, etc.

Instruction is…

  • Student-centered (less teacher or institutionally-centered)Student as designer and producer, teacher as resource and assessment expert rather than knowledge holder and task-master

  • Diverse (less uniform)With access to a nearly infinite number of digital domains, instruction will have to adapt in parallel, including peer-to-peer, student-to-student, school-to-school learning; mastery-based learning via apps such as the Khan Academy 

  • Focused on persistent transfer (less focused on “tests”)iPads cater to media consumption and production. Intentional instructional scope-and-sequencing will help promote transfer of standards-mastery through both consumption (reading, viewing, observing) and production (designing, constructing, executing)

Assessment is…

  • Authentic (less academic)Seamlessly transfers to physical and digital domains of learner, with useful artifacts, products, and applications in the “real world”

  • Frequent & Formative (less intermittent and summative)A climate of assessment that yields simple data digestible to all stakeholders–including the teacher

  • Fluid and/or Project-Based (less obsessed with standards and “proficiency”)“Fluid” assessment provides a constant stream from a wide variety of sources and forms. This is possible in Problem-based, Challenge-based, or Community-Based projects that reward innovation, risk-taking, self-awareness, and inductive thinking patterns

Integrated with…

  • School & District Initiatives (in isolation)Literacy and Technology plans, extracurricular programs, college-readiness programs, etc.

  • Relevant Communities (forced, awkward audiences–for the love of everything, please no more letters to the principals)Digital, Physical, Local, Global

  • Apple Ecology (disconnected from other Apple and related ecologies)ITunesU, Macs, Apps, iOS, Apple-friendly apps, etc.
