There’s an App… and an Accessory for That!

What happens when you combine an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch with apps and accessories? You get APPcessories! Everyday, it seems like more and more companies are coming up with innovative accessories to make iOS devices more fun and educational at the same time. With so many available, it is difficult to know what is good or not so good. Luckily, Jonathan Nalder has started to review some of these iOS apps and accessories from an educator’s standpoint.

EdLegend: Who is the Steve Jobs of Education? Here’s Four Candidates: October 26, 2011 8:00 am

EdLegend: Who is the Steve Jobs of Education? Here’s Four Candidates:

Visionary. When I used to hear the stories of Steve Jobs, being kind of tyrannical, a “megalomaniac,” as some have called him (and at some times, just a plain-old jerk), in hindsight- I forgive him. The people he treated might not, but I have the advantage of being an objective observer .  I know that we don’t think of Thomas Edison as a “nice” man, nor do we care if he was nice. He too was a visionary, who understood […]

EdLegend: Steve Jobs- Education and Intuition’s Great Loss

I’m still trying to figure out what all of this means, but the more and more I look into it, the more I dig into my feelings- there’s no silver lining. Losing Steve Jobs is a great blow to education. Steve’s gift wasn’t that he knew what we wanted. His beautiful gift was knowing how we wanted to interact with our modern world. Steve’s master- his Empress- was Intuition, and he served her well. Of course, we put him on a pedestal. […]

1:1 iPads in Michigan July 25, 2011 8:00 am

1:1 iPads in Michigan

I’m excited to announce that next year my school, Southfield Christian, is launching a 1:1 iPad initiative in our high school. All students in grades 9-12 will receive an iPad to take home and keep for the entire school year. We have been planning and preparing for this even for over a year. Our decision to go with the iPad had to do with the cost:feature ratio, ease of use, maintenance track record, and power consumption. We were very excited that […]

Celebrating Failure: It’s About the People, Not the Technology

What happens when you throw a bunch of Apple Distinguished Educators (ADEs) in the middle of the Arizona desert for a week of sharing and learning? Some pretty amazing things! It was an absolute honor to be able to attend the ADE Summer Institute with such a phenomenal group of educators. The week-long institute was an opportunity for me to share, learn, and grow in ways I had never imagined. While I left the Institute with loads of valuable ideas […]
