A1 Screenrecording, makes it a lot easier to make tutorials for students and teachers.
I guess files is a great feature too but didn't used that one yet.
I also liked the build in QR scanner
There is room for so many apps in the dock! Love that one too!
During this chat I just find out:…..Wow, wait….this 'files' app contains my whole iCloud drive? THIS IS GREAT (just exploring it right now)
Q2 What features of iOS 11 do you think will have the biggest impact on your current practice ?
A2 the time will tell….there have to be more light bulbs to know every feature.
Q3 What ideas do you have for using screen recording to support learning?
A3 Lots of ideas I would like students to record their screen and voice when they do some learning activities
A3 Screen recording also allows me to create flipped learning activities for students and co-workers.
Q4 What tips would you give to schools updating their devices?
A4 sitting back and waiting for those tips (just do it would be my answer!)
Tips I collect:
- start small
- Check apps (64 bit only!)
- Advise staff
- Provide training for key features
- Do a phassed roll out
- Ensure staff are upskilled
- Get digital leaders to produce tips/guides using clips
- Hold a training evening sharing ideas and explaining effective practice
- Don't try and show everybody everything at once
- After updating take time to go through and practice the pedagogical use of these new features.
- Check your apps: do we really need it?
A5 All the features from Q1 ;-)
Q6 Have the updates to iOS 11 made you think about changing the apps you use in class?
A6 We are still working on our 1:1 situation so it's right in time. Will use OneNote but maybe ditch explain everything.
