Have a Classroom AUP Move to the Cloud The principles of good teaching do not change and modeling is one of those basic techniques that can effec tively impact a student. If we are going to ensure the adoption of pos itive netiquette by our students, then we need to display these actions for them. Weekly Digital Citizenship - make the enduring understanding of digital citi zenship a regular component in your classroom. No matter what your subject, there is an opportunity to promote proper and meaningful use.
Be a Steward of Technology - PREPARE Set clear expectations: a lot of classroom management challenges can easily be overcome by setting clear guidelines and expectations for iPad use. Have clear procedures in place for what to do when something isn't working.
Should students ask peers or you for help? Should they be sent to tech support? Are there loaners available, or should they look on with another student? How you handle malfunctions will likely vary from lesson to lesson. As you get to know your students, you'll know which ones will be good tech helpers when something goes wrong. Class arrangement: This is important and goes hand-in-hand with "Management by Walking Around." Sometimes you'll want the students in groups, so MWA is essential. Other times, you'll want them in rows (testing, for example) so you can see each laptop screen at once. If you have kids without laptops, sit them out of view. Daily sign off sheets: Again, along with daily expectations, let them know that you expect to see what they completed for the day. Students are less likely to goof on their computers if they know you expect a two-page paper. -

Lesson plans: Make sure you include time in your lesson plan to review how to use the technology. If you are having them do a PowerPoint presentation, don't assume they know how to do one properly. Build in time to teach these skills. - See more at: http://www.techlearning.com/from-the-classroom/0015/one-to-one-computing-andclassroom-management/44472#sthash.pBzVlXW0.dpuf
MONITOR Circulate around the room: I have seen many teachers who like to teach from their desk. This cannot be done with iPads in the classroom. The teacher must walk around the classroom and circulate often when students are working individually. That gives the students the idea of teacher-with-it-ness and encourages them to be ontask. Also, arrange the classroom in a way that allows all or most devices to be in view. SOMETHING WILL GO WRONG
Prepare backup plans: A teacher designed a really cool rubric using Numbers (the spreadsheet app). The students were to use this rubric to assess themselves. I uploaded the file on Edmodo, shared it with the class and thought everything was under control. However, many students couldnt open it because it required the latest version of Numbers, which many of them didnt have (students dont always regularly update their apps and their iOS software either). Luckily, I had a few printed copies. Technology does let us down sometimes. The most important thing is: dont panic in front of students and relax, show them
that you control the technology, not the other way around. THEY MUST BE RESPONSIBLE Teach responsibility: ultimately, we need to teach students to be responsible for their own learning. Mobile devices empower the students with a lot of tools that can be useful for learning, but at the end of the day, they have to make the choice of learning or not. Remind your students that Im responsible for my own teaching, you are responsible for your own learning. Talk to them about making choices and the consequences of these
choices. If they allow themselves to get distracted, ask them to give suggestions for helping them stay on-task, so they feel they have more responsibility over the situation. CONSEQUENCES What if a student doesn't comply with your technology expectations? Remember, as the teacher you are the adult in control. Communicate to your students that not meeting appropriate use expectations in your classroom will result in loss of privileges, detention, communication home, or whatever logical consequence you see fit. Although technology is often one of the best tools we
have for instruction, it isn't the only one. In a pinch, students can make due in the short term with pencil, paper, and old-fashioned textbooks and reference books. Most students, when they realize this is the alternative to a technologyrich experience, will modify their behavior accordingly. Avoid making loss of technology a long-term solution. If you're really integrating the technology well, not allowing access to a tool/resource may be unfairly putting up a barrier to learning. Similarly, you shouldn't punish an entire class because one or two members of the community are a challenge. With a solid plan (and a back up either a back up plan or an instructional peer), you can make it work for everyone in your class. https://sites.google.com/a/fvdistrict221.org/forrestville-valley-school-district-instructional-technology-department/ ipad-initiative/tech-classroom-management-tip
MANAGEMENT TIPS Choose some "commands" for classroom management and practice them with your kids. Some ideas: 45 your screens - students lower their screens to approx 45 degrees so the computers won't overheat or sleep, but students won't be distracted by the screen Lids down, I want to hear 20 clicks (if you have 20 kids), Close 'em - close the computer; all eyes on the teacher Hands on your heads, Reach for the stars... - hands off the computers and someplace where you can see them
Shut down, 5 minute warning - Shut down the computer and pack it up. Teacher lowers screen - Student isn't allowed to raise the screen until teacher conference or the teacher raises it (When a student doesn't comply as directed). Non-verbals - music, chimes, light flash, bells, buzzers, timers, etc., can be used effectively to gain student attention during projects Visuals - give students a "flag" (colored index card, post-it, etc.) to put out when they need you for a non-emergency question rather than impatiently raising a hand. *https://sites.google.com/site/teachingone2one/Home/classroom-management
MISTAKES Keep your focus on your content. It is your content that defines your class and it is your content that will drive the way you use your device, not the other way around. Limiting Students to What the Teacher Knows - Dont be afraid to let students use technology beyond your knowledge base and understanding. Accept that you are student too. Learn.

It represents an app whereby a tablet screen is divided between a web browser and lined note paper. Students can take down notes, and can build up comparisons based on their work. Depending on the
age level of students, this can be an excellent way to produce real-time notes when in the classroom or at home. ELEMENTARY APPS http://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=150x150&choe=UTF-8& chld=H&chl=http:// goo.gl/sh1JT
