How to Transform Teaching with Tablets
Daccord, Tom; Reich, Justin
Educational Leadership, v72 n8 p18-23 May 2015
Without a change in our technology integration strategies, there's no reason to expect that a new device will magically create new teaching practices. In some iPad classrooms, students are engaged in truly innovative work. On the whole, however, tablets are most often used to reproduce existing practices. To make the most of their investment in tablet computers, school leaders need to do three things: work with their communities to articulate a vision for how new technology will improve instruction; help educators imagine how new technologies can support those visions; and support teachers and students as they move from using tablets for consumption to using them for curation, creation, and connection. The authors suggest a Someday/Monday approach: Someday based experiments require teachers to rethink pedagogy, curriculum, assessment, and teaching practices (someday). On the other hand, teachers need to start somewhere; they need something manageable that they can try out on Monday that will take them one step closer to wider change.
