8 Apps for Everything

How we set up iPads to focus on pedagogy not technology. As revolutionary as iPads are, they suffer from one particular affliction, they remain, in the minds of many, if not most of our students and parents, gaming devices. Which is fine, but it is important that you understand that in our school, this is rarely if ever how they are used. In our school, they are devices for capturing learning, devices that allow us to permeate our classrooms with what we call:
Capture Culture
This means that as teachers we need to make sure we focus on ensuring that they are used as learning devices, as devices that capture learning; if there’s ONE thing that sums up what we're trying to establish it’s this - we are building a capture culture - that’s it, everywhere, all year long.
Capturing what they can do, can't do, could do, thought they could do but couldn't, couldn't do but now can, and so on.
So, as strange as this may seem, considering the plethora of Apps on the App Store, the Apps we really focus on are not the usual suspects, the 'skill and drill' 'educational' Apps, no, we focus on just 8 Core App
