8 Facets of Learning

A team of teachers and administrators at my school identified 8 FACETS of LEARNING as part of our 1:1 Mobile Learning Initiative where we feel that mobile devices could really impact student learning.  This is not an exhaustive list but represents how we need to really look beyond the iPad as a  consumer device and look for opportunities for content-creation, authentic learning experiences and collaborative projects. Focusing on the learning objective is essential when planning on using devices in your classroom.  The embedded presentation showcases a few of the ways that we plan for this focus.

iPad Online Modules – 1

For our mobile learning 1:1 program rollout, we are asking our students to go through a series of online modules using Schoology to review digital citizenship and our Acceptable Use policy, guidelines for setting up their iPads, which apps to install, care and use of their iPads, etc.

This series of blog posts will share the material for the online modules.  Schoology provides us the opportunity to require students to work through the modules one at a time and they can’t advance until they’ve met the completion rules (super great feature for online learning!).

MODULE 1: STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES

Welcome

These mobile learning modules on Schoology aim to provide La Salle Prep students with information about the Mobile Learning Initiative focusing on policies, guidelines and practical information about using your personal iPad at school.

These modules serve as curriculum to complement the responsibilities and rules listed in the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) outlined in the student handbook.  Students will be required to have a copy of the AUP downloaded on their iPad in iBooks.

The modules will cover three main areas:

  • Module 1:  Student Responsibilities
  • Module 2:  Acceptable Use
  • Module 3:  Next Steps
