Teaching and learning with IPad

Teaching and learning with iPad for ITP

 

This conference is about how to include new information and communication technologies in our educational methods.

But the first question to ask is: why do I want to include new information and communication technologies in our educational methods?

Indeed, what is the priority? The need or the technology, the « learning  & teaching » or the iPad?

Our skills rely on pedagogy and not technology. I beg your pardon but the title of this conference has not been right chosen. When I read it for the first time, I thought straight away that you had been given an iPad, and you did not know what to do with it. Maybe you can learn, teach, but also play freesbee. So we have to focus on education. If you consider your pedagogy being perfect, why should we add complexity with technology? But when you are facing a problem, a limit or a constraint,  you have to think about a way to improve your course. Is there any solution or rather does techbnology represent the appropriate solution? That is the reason why you have not only to be aware about new technologies, but also open-minded, to be able to use new devices when they seem to be interesting and useful.

This is the purpose of this afternoon briefing through real situations and examples. How can NICT improve my educational methods (if needed)?
