In a post, titled It’s All About Sharing and Collaborating, I wrote about a Russian educator who had translated material from Langwitches into his language in order to SHARE the content with his colleagues who spoke no English. Alec Couros, told the Amazing Story of Openness and his diagram of the Networked Teacher as it has been translated into many languages now.
It am tremendously honored, when my work gets AMPLIFIED into other languages, reaching educators, I would not have reached otherwise. Dico Krommenhoek contacted me a few days ago via Twitter. I was thrilled to give permission, without hesitation, when he asked to translate the iPad App Evaluation checklist into Dutch. It gives me a sense of COLLABORATION across time, space and language, when I can “teach” via my work and materials without ever speaking the same language or meeting these teachers face to face.
This is a beauty of CREATIVE COMMONS and an amazing story of openness (as Alec Couros puts it).
That is why my work gives me satisfaction…
You can download the pdf file of the checklist in Dutch here.

I’m new to your site, but I’m loving all the resources you have available! I know several classrooms that are now using iPads. I love the way apps are adapting to aid education!
Great iPad rubrics!
I love that my iPad has freed me up to circulate the classroom, yet still present material via my laptop through the Doceri app. I am rarely stationary for more than a few minutes during a lesson, and if so, it is while stopped checking a students work or answering a question. Also, even as high school students, they LOVE to provide solutions/graph/etc on the iPad to share with the class…they literally fight over who is getting it next.
I like the idea of having your work “amplified” by having it translated into another language. This is a great example of being globally connected. It would be a good way to connect with colleagues from around the world.
I rarely use my iPad for instruction, mostly personal use. resources such as these will help me broaden my iPad use.
I really like to use my iPad in the classroom. My students like to explore different apps that interest them. I feel that they really help others in the classroom stay connected.
I use my iPads a lot in my classroom for individualized instruction, reinforcement, rewards, and as an educational tool. iPads are extremely motivating to my students and help all students to easily be included in all classroom settings. I like the idea of an app evaluation, it would be a great resource to share with co-workers.
The ESL hat that I wear loves the translation capabilities. I do have an iPad for ESL students. There are many apps that are very useful for ESL students. However, I do not have an iPad to use in my classroom.
Especially for my ESL students, amplifying my work to translate into other languages is a great idea!
I use iPads in my room for differentiation, enrichment, and RTII to name a few. The kids love using them. I certainly think an app evaluation would be useful.
I love the resources available for the iPad. The students use them on a regular basis in the classroom, but I will definitely use mine more for instruction now.
From my understanding ‘amplifying’ is to extend student learning performance beyond the scope of the classroom. This done nicely with technology.
I think that using personal media devices such as iPads can be a great way to reduce paperwork and to bring the computer lab to students, and to use the computers in more collaborative ways than teachers have in the past generation.
I love the resources available on the ipads and I wish that I had more of them in my classroom to incorporate into my lessons and small group activities. I think the students would love using them more and I think that an app evaluation would be wonderful!
I am excited about some of the apps that I’ve learned abut for iPads. We recently got an iPad cart for our 3-5 grade band. We are in the beginning phases of finding the best ways to incorporate them into our learning. The students love anything to do with them, but finding resources links to websites that relate to our objectives is a big challenge.
