The iPad is a valuable learning tool that brings 21st century instruction techniques into the classroom. In this course, Laurie Burruss shows how to deploy iPads devices in your classroom, whether students bring the devices or the school provides them. Learn how to sync multiple iPad devices to a master with Apple Configurator; download apps; create a classroom calendar; and print and project lessons from the iPad. Laurie also includes her top tips and tricks for getting the most from the your iPad setup.
As well as learning how to share in Dropbox, the students need to know how to get things into the LMS. So we're going to show you in our Wikispaces, how to post something onto a page. I'm going to go in as the teacher and create a new page called Class Photos. I'll add a couple tags at the bottom. Photos, and design 105 sp 13. Then select Create. At the top of the page I always name it.
I'll call this Class Photos. I'll select the text and choose Heading 2. Then I'll choose save. I'm going to leave this blank and let the students post their photos up. Now, let's go look at the iPad and figure out how to get a photo into the learning management system. Once the student is logged into the Learning Management System, have the student tap on Pages and Files. In this list, have the student look for Class Photos. Tap on the words Class Photos.
Select Edit. Now tap on the main content area to insert the Ibeam/g. You may have to hit Return. Select File. Tap on Upload Files select Camera Roll now select the Class Photo. Tap on Done. Wait for it to upload. Slide down the keyboard.
Once you see the icon, tap on the image dot JPEG. Once you see this little pop-up window. Next to size you see there are a minus and a plus key. Have the student tap on minus until it's much, much smaller. Then tap on add caption and have the student add their name. Scroll up to your Edit bar, Tap Save. Now your first student in your class has added their photo to the class photos.
I do want to warn you here that only one person can work on a wiki page at a time. So what I do is have the students take turn, go to someone else in the class introduce themselves and say now it's your turn. It's a great way for everyone to get to know each other and to have them instantly set up a class portrait. So, what we've learned is that there is a lot of ways that we can get content on and off the iPad. And one of the most important ways is that we can create research documents, photo's, images, that we can share together as a class, as just a group.
So, we want to have those one on one shares as well as the one to many shares. For me the best aspect of the Learning Management System with the iPad, is it creates a group place for every member of the class to share their ideas, and what their working on.
