iPads and Tablets in School

Hello.

It’s been a long time since I posted here. November’s been busy, busy, busy at school and at home. But I decided that I have something worth sharing today, and if you’re a student or a teacher, it should have a positive impact on the time you spend at school.

Last night I came across ipad4schools.org, another blog here on WordPress, which I’ve decided to follow because of the wealth of information I found there.

The post that really caught my attention is the one called “iPad guides“, which has some fantastic ideas on using iPads to engage students in their own learning at a depth I rarely see in schools. The post includes a number of PDFs, which you can print for a class or library bulletin board. They’re visually appealing and easy to understand, which means they’re likely to actually be used by the intended audience – students and teachers. I’ve already posted 3 of them in my room, and this afternoon’s last-period grade 10 class will begin experimenting with a few of them. This should be fun and educational!
