iPads in the Classroom

    iPads in the Classroom

    Teaching with Technology

    My name is Jeremy Ensrud. I am a biology teacher at Canby high School in Canby, Oregon. I use iPads as a teaching tool in my classes to improve student engagement, self-efficacy, and self-directed learning. My students are using mobile devices to, explore, investigate, analyze, and create throughout their scientific investigations. This technology helps me monitor student learning, so that I can provide timely individualized feedback to my students. I am using a combination of blended instruction, and student-centered assessment to create a classroom environment consistent with the technology standard of tomorrow's workplace. On this wiki I have posted video tutorials, tools, and examples, as well as links to others who have inspired me.

    Learning Management Systems

    Schoology (www.schoology.com)
    Schoology is a free learning management system that I would highly recommend. Schoology is a highly polished free LMS that literally has it all. Teachers can post files, links, assignments, and quizzes which can be organized into folders within each class. Class resources can be archived and copied from one term to the next. Each class has a unique code used for classroom enrollment. The mobile app for Schoology is highly polished. In some cases better than the web-based version. The submission text editor has a complete text formatting palette, including math fonts so students can write formatted English papers, and show their work in Math. Schoology has a built in assignment drop box, allowing students to upload documents, images or videos to the turn-in box. There are many quiz options including randomized questions, randomized answers, retakes, time limits, multiple choice, fill in the blank, and matching. There are too many features to mention, and improvements are coming all the time.
