One thought on “Teaching with Tablets Infographic

  1. I think this image really just scratches the surface of the potential for using tablet type devices in learning and teaching. In addition to the possibility of using devices as electronic multimedia textbooks and to access apps, these devices can be used right across the learning and teaching process and environment. Just some examples:
    – They can be used to facilitate enquiry based and collaborative learning – such as by enabling students to research a topic, discuss and collaborate, share information and present it
    – They can be used by students to structure their time, plan projects, make todo lists, etc
    – They can facilitate less linear approaches to thinking, problem solving and learning, such as through the use of Mindmapping, card sorts, cork boards etc – this may also be of benefit to students with Dyslexia
    – Although there is room for improvement, iPads in particular have some useful accessibility features such as text to speech, dynamic screen zooming, audio cues for touch control, contrast control, dictation support etc, which potentially widens opportunities for students to participate
    – They can be used to access research, databases and web based resources such as Moodle, Mendelay, research comunities like Linkedin etc
    – They can be used by students or staff to review literature, comment on articles and provide feedback on work (including the potential to do this more creatively and interactively such as via Facetime and video links or audio comments)
    – They can be used by educators to prepare and present sessions interactively and using a variety of media (including virtual anatomy, physics etc)
    – They can be used to create blogs and websites, videos and multimedia portfolios
