Andrew Rhodes is one of a select few ADE’s who show teachers around the world how Apple technologies can support learning. Previously a science teacher, now the Director of Technology for the international school of Stavanger in Norway, Andrew is always on the lookout for exciting new education technologies that have the potential to change learning outcomes for the better.
In this interview Andrew predicts 3 key educational trends that are fully supported by the Labdisc.
1. Easy, early multi-disciplinary activities
2. The new role of teacher as “facilitator”
3. Demonstrating measurable value for every technology purchase
“My first impressions of the GlobiLab for iPad are that it is very intuitive with much more functionality than other solutions where analysis features are limited. Most teachers want to use the iPad for data logging because it’s a practical tool, but they have to export the data to the computer for analysis. With Globisens this isn’t the case. They didn’t just create software for the iPad as a companion to the PC version. The GlobiLab is a stand-alone solution, with extra interest from features like Google Maps integration.”
