More About the Author

Welcome to my author page. I've been working in education and technology for over 25 years and I'm a firm believer in the potential of technology to change and revitalize our educational systems. I've spoken at conferences around the world about technology and educational reform.

I've consulted for small schools, districts and even governments; most recently having been invited to advise the Prime Minister of Greece about the use of mobile devices in their education system. I'm the author of the recently released "iPad in Education for Dummies" book published by Wiley Press and I also founded and manage the very popular iPads in Education Ning community website - www.ipadeducators.ning.com - that has a membership of many thousands of educators worldwide.

I have been waiting for this book as I know there is quite a buzz about incorporating IPADS in classrooms, and I wanted to know more about it. In reading through (and by the way, it's an easy, fun read..) - I am blown away by the possibilities this presents for our children. The school my children attend perceives itself as a school that promotes the use of technology, but in reality they do not know how to go about it. Most teachers want whiteboards for lecturing, and the children use a computer lab once in a while, largely as a tool to create nice documents.
This book gives a clear direction for integrating technology in schools. It opens new horizons for learning that place children in the center of a curiosity-based learning process; it shows how IPads can be used to share and increase interaction between children and teachers. More than anything else this opens the path for children to work through media which they love, and to expand their learning while having fun.
I am buying a copy for the school principal, head of our PTA and my children's teachers so they can lead our school to incorporate technology and benefit from the full spectrum of possibilities that IPADs can bring to our children' education.

Format: Paperback
Having been a high school teacher for over 30 years, I was most impressed with Sam Gliksman's "iPad in Education for Dummies"
It articulates in a very easy to read manner, the many ways in which the iPad can be effectively used to educate students in
the 21st century. The book in its early part addresses the questions of "how" and "why" of teaching. Gliksman makes the point well that schools
using modern technology and are at the same time still using old teaching methods, are not necessarily meeting the "preparation for
life" purpose of education. The early pages of the book reminded me of what I was told many years ago at teachers college,
"Education is what you're left with, after everything you have learned has been forgotten". The book illustrates a great number
of ways the iPad can be used to motivate and empower students with different learning styles. The book is not just for the non
tech-savvy (dummy) teacher. There's a multitude of creative ideas of interest for all IT teachers. Furthermore, the classroom
applications are not limited to particular years. In the Appendix, there are examples of iPad Education applications ranging from
kinder to Year 12. Gliksman also has a section on applications for students with vision, hearing or physical and motor skills impairments.
I would strongly recommend that all schools encourage their staff to each have a copy of iPad in Education for Dummies. My only regret is
that the iPad and this book weren't around when I started my teaching career back in the 1970's.

Even after having used the iPad in the HS classroom for 3 years, I was still quickly becoming overwhelmed with managing and trying to keep up with new apps, operating issues, and new how to's. This book has solved those issues, with easy layout, bright pictures, step by step instructions, app suggestions, sample lesson plans, etc. This book goes above and beyond the functions of the iPad and really gets into its use in the classroom. Spring Break wasn't long enough to go through all the material covered in this gem. Thanks!

If you're new to using an iPad, or just want more background information - this is the resource. Directions are very simple to follow and step by step. Sam Gliksman does a great job and supports his presentations which I saw at the CUE Conference.

It helps when one can read about how others use the iPad for their schools. Love the many new ideas and others never thought of.
