iPad

I recently got an iPad. During this break, I have downloaded app after app to explore the iPad’s usability in the classroom. One of my favorite websites for the iPad is built just for teachers and students – http://www.appitic.com/
Whether you have an iPad or not, you can explore some of the powerful uses for teaching and learning. While I have my reservations (cost of product, fragility, difficulty of typing on device, etc) there are plenty of benefits for using a tablet like the iPad in the classroom. For example, the apps “explain everything” and “screen chomp” are great freetools for students to create presentations or for the teacher to create tutorials. I recently participated in a webinar all about the uses of those apps and more and the possibilities are very exciting.
