CONTINUING THE JOURNEY

TAKING STOCK A FEW NEW EXCURSIONS + PLANNING THE NEXT LEG
We're continuing the journey today.

We all already have different experiences, ideas and questions to share.

We'll hopefully share and learn a lot together today but also progress plans for next time too.

The possibilities are endless and we'll cover a lot today, which may seem overwhelming, but your call to action will be to simply undertake to try at least 'one new thing' from the range of things we cover. Then to share reflections and examples as you continue your personal journey.

THANK YOU...

ESSENTIAL AND DESIRABLE PRE-EVENT TASKS
Thank you for responding to and completing the pre-event tasks. This helped inform what we need to cover today.

FOCUS

MAIN TOPICS & OBJECTIVES FOR TODAY
So let's quickly discuss and agree the main topics and objectives for today...

PRIMARY FOCUS

USE OF IPADS (+) FOR CONTENT CREATION
The primary focus today is on the possibilities for content creation on your iPads. We will also touch on the associated technologies including desktops, laptops and other devices and accessories but the main hands-on activity will be use of the iPads.

IPAD ORIENTATION

BASICS + SHARING TIPS & TRICKS
We'll start with an orientation session where we can all share tips and tricks. Hopefully there will be some useful "well I never knew that" moments!

PERMISSIONS

DO WE NEED MODEL RELEASE FORMS?
To explore the full potential of content creation on the iPads we'll need to work together and potentially capture images, audio, video of each other as part of this exploration and creation and we may also share some of this online. Does anyone have a problem with this?

APPS

ITUNES APP SELECTION/REVIEW FREE PAID
We'll be looking at a wide range of apps including free and paid for apps and also tips on selection and review. There's no one size fits all here and your selection of apps and techniques obviously needs to be led by your teaching and learning objectives.

CONNECTIVITY &...

WIRELESS 3G/MIFI VGA/HDMI AIRPLAY
We'll discuss and explore various connectivity related topics and may well have some challenges along the way...

CONNECTIVISM

...as well as connectivity our underpinning principles obviously needs to be mindful of appropriate learning theories e.g. Connectivism

The definition on Wikipedia describes connectivism as follows:

Connectivism is a theory of learning which emphasizes the role of social and cultural context. Connectivism is often associated with, and proposes a perspective similar to Vygotsky's 'zone of proximal development' (ZPD), an idea later transposed into Engeström's (2001) Activity theory.[1] The relationship between work experience, learning and knowledge, as expressed in the concept of ‘connectivity, is central to connectivism, motivating the theory's name.[2] It is somewhat similar to Bandura's Social Learning Theory that proposes that people learn through contact.
The phrase "a learning theory for the digital age"[3] indicates the emphasis that connectivism gives to technology's effect on how people live, communicate and learn.

THE SAMR MODEL?

I like referring to the SAMR model in terms of assessing our use of technology in teaching and learning.

Does anyone use this already? I particularly like it because it can be adopted and makes sense at whatever level we wish to embrace it. There is plenty of in-depth theory but even at a very basic and practical level in can help to ensure that we aren't using technology for the sake of it!

We may explore this further during the session.

UNDERPINNING CONTEXT

MULTI-PLATFORM PEDAGOGY
I was really pleased to find this picture and hopefully we'll unpick why during the session.

Arguably the key thing we need to be mindful of is that for each different scenario we need to match the technology to the teaching and learning context - there simply isn't a one size fits all approach both in terms of technology and pedagogy.

ACTIVE LEARNING

HANDS-ON NOT CHALK & TALK BUT...
I'm sure we all appreciate the benefits of an active learning approach and we certainly don't want this to be a day of chalk & talk from the front but we need to agree the best way to work together...

YOUR CHOICE?

SAME APPS IN PRIORITY ORDER OR SHOW & TELL IN PAIRS
There may be more than two choices but I was wondering if we should all cover the same apps at the same time in a sort of linear fashion or if we should identify different priorities, interests and skills and then everyone shares ideas and examples in a less linear fashion?

IT WILL BE CHAOTIC

HELP ME HELP EACH OTHER HELP YOURSELVES
Either way it will be chaotic!

Please help me, help each other and help yourselves to ensure the day is a success.

Take notes, ask questions, share ideas and examples please don't sit frustrated - we all have expertise to share!

1. IPAD ORIENTATION...

WHO HAS SOME 'OUT OF THE BOX' TIPS TO SHARE
Ok time for some iPad orientation and sharing of tips and tricks. Before we look at additional apps what can we do 'out of the box'?
