Sequencing skills using iPads

Sequencing skills using iPads

This resource is aimed at teachers using iPads with students to provide ideas and inspiration for iPad activities in class. It’s suitable for all levels of teaching experience and digital skill, from new starters to experienced digital leaders. It can also be used as a general CPD resource for developing teaching skills, as the ideas suggested are not reliant on digital devices. Sequencing is an important thinking skill for students to develop. The first page of the resource provides the rationale for sequencing as a teaching concept and ideas to try out with suggested apps, along with differentiated levels of challenge for students to practise this skill. We’ve linked iOS apps but the ideas are adaptable to non-iOS / BYOD digital classrooms too. The second page provides some subject-specific ideas for lesson activities (our apologies if we’ve missed out your subject area!). We hope you’ll find some iPad teaching & learning inspiration here! About us: we’re developing a classroom app, Sparkjar, for use in iPad schools. We’ve made these free resources because we want to give something back to teachers whilst we raise the profile of Sparkjar. We hope you find them useful as part of your iPad teaching toolkit. There’s a link to our website in the resource - if you want to check us out, please do.

Stretch and Challenge Graph - Getting the level of challenge right!

Stretch and Challenge Graph - Getting the level of challenge right!

Hand out a graph per student as they enter the room (I keep anonymous unless they want to write their name on the back) Inform them what challenge is - a little out of their comfort zone get students to plot the points of their learning journey throughout the lesson This is a great way to reflect on your teaching - was their enough challenge. The results may surprise you.
