iPods in Education Part 12: Customized Learning Using Apps

The Mobile Learner

There has been a gap of several months since I last shared ideas in the form of a blog post on the topic of using iPods in Education. While the introduction of the iPhone and the iPod Touch has changed the rules in how handheld devices can be used in education, this series has laid dormant as I’ve been in the process of catching up with the technology. As I did not own neither an iPod Touch nor an iPhone, I didn’t feel confident that I could confidently discuss the benefits of using such devices in education. That is, until now.

iPods in Education Part 13: Uses in Kindergarten?

The Mobile Learner

Two articles (links provided at the end of this post) have stirred my reflective attention toward the use of an iPod or iPod Touch with Kindergarten students. Despite the countless number of videos on Youtube of children as young as 1 or 2 using an iPhone or iPod Touch with ease, I am still unsure of where digital technology fits in the molding of young minds at those foundational times in their lives. Therefore, when it comes to very young children, the use of an iPod can be very useful as these devices are easy to use, they are resource heavy and they are engaging.

When is an ipod not an mLearning device?

mLearning World

There has been a debate over this for a while, but today’s new ipods seems to have started debate again! My take (commented as jnxyz) is that “no one ever said the ipod was built as a ed device. I’m only aware of one portable digital device that ever truly has been (OLPC). Until all schools get OLPC’s or similar, that’s our educator’s lot I’m afraid… Or is there another alternative device out there?” See also these previous articles here about ipod’s and education: - Let’s get the ipod’s in schools debate started! touch mLearning mLearn debate iPod

Open Discussion- Is There an Educational Laffer Curve?

mLearning World

I've been doing some research with a friend on educational spending and performance in the key areas of math, science, technology, etc. We have stumbled upon an interesting anomaly, a correlation with the less a school spends on education and higher performance in these key areas. Of course, there is a limitation to this where a lack of funding can obviously not support education, but this does seem to counter the trend of constantly putting more money into the system. This requires teachers to be creative and innovative in educational approach. learing+2.0

The first Web2.0, comprehensive iPhone education app?

One common problem for educators seeking to use the iPhone or iPod touch in their learning environment is the fact that the most common uses of the devices for things such as taking attendance, voice recording or interfacing with learning management systems (such as Moodle) require constant exiting and switching between several different apps. Helping to solve this problem is a new app from iKonstrukt thats simply titled ‘Educate’. So can this app live up to its ambitious name of providing everything needed to educate a student?
