Meleny Weber's curator insight, October 14, 2013 4:23 PM

This article on  Edudemic is very useful for all teachers and future teachers who are interested in incorporating more technology into their classroom, especially iPads. I think Ipads can be very beneficial to a classroom for a variety of reasons. They offer more dynamic activities for students to assist in learning. They also make things run more smoothly in the classroom. This article allows insight into why some schools have been failing at implementing iPads into the curriculum, and offers a solution. Very good ideas! For example, the author writes that a language teacher may think iPads don't work well in his or her classroom because there is not a good enough app in the language. The article then offers the solution of purchasing other apps, such as a voice recording one, so the teacher can record her/himself saying the words in the language. This will allow the students to listen and hear how the words should sound. I completely trust this author's opinion and ideas because he states that he went to a iPads in the Classroom workshop at Harvard University over the summer for several days, where they learned all of the beneficial applications teachers and students can use in the classroom. Hopefully one day in my own classroom I will have the opportunity to incorporate an iPad, and if I do I will absolutely use these ideas.
