The Apple Learning Interchange is a network for teachers interested in using technology in their classrooms. The website is sponsored by Apple, but the methods and materials on the website are not limited to Apple products. The best resource I’ve found on the Apple Learning Interchange is the videos of teaching methods in action. Click the image below to see a video of a teacher modeling and discussing the use of electronic journaling with a sixth grade class.
Application for Educators
The videos on the Apple Learning Interchange are primarily oriented toward elementary and middle school instructional techniques, but there are some methods suitable for high school instruction.
The videos are a great resource if you have an idea for a lesson but you aren’t sure what it will look like in practice. The videos of methods in action are very useful for new teachers or veteran teachers mentoring those new to the profession.
