Teaching with Tablets

As the rapid take up of tablets gathers pace in UK schools there is a need for advice on the best approaches, apps and strategies to help teachers achieve successful learning outcomes. This book provides it. Lecturer blurb: Handheld technologies present new challenges to teachers and trainee teachers. As more and more primary schools acquire devices such as iPads and tablets, it is becoming clear that adding them as a classroom resource is not enough. Teachers and trainees need strategies to integrate these into existing learning contexts in a meaningful way. Without this, these fantastic resources lose their value. This book develops the skills of teachers and trainee teachers by offering clear guidance on how to use tablets to devise meaningful learning activities and embed them in genuine curriculum contexts, drawing upon case studies from existing practice. It is written for non-specialists and explains technical terms in an accessible, practical way. Each chapter begins with a case study contributed by a teacher using tablets in schools. Real life examples and comment like this give the text a truly practical focus. The book focuses on 5 themes: • combining media • visible learning • personalised learning • any place learning • the computing curriculum
