iPads in the classroom

One of the latest approaches to using technology in the classroom is the use of iPads. Teachers and developers are constantly devising innovative ways of using apps in the classroom to create quality resources and experiences for students. After all, some of the most advanced technology for reading, learning, and communicating is literally at our fingertips.

However, simply providing an iPad and saying it will increase learning of course isn’t enough. Careful and thoughtful deployment of this new technology is required. When used strategically, the possibilities for teaching and learning are endless. iPads allow for immediate feedback  to students, all-class participation, simplifying collection of materials, annotating and many more. iPads could never replace quality teaching but when used in partnership, increase engagement and enhance learning.
