"Here's a surefire way to get tech-obsessed middle school students interested in learning again. Bring an over-sized iPad into the classroom, and fill it with games and apps based on the school's curriculum. Then, let them loose."

The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools

The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools | ASU Block I | Scoop.it

"When you think of iPads in schools, you probably think of a cart that's wheeled into a classroom. Youngsters cheer at the arrival of the cart. Devices are passed out, used for a lesson, and then returned to the cart. The cart is then whisked away to another classroom where the same thing happens. Having a cart of devices puts the adults in charge of the technology. If possible, I would like to see students in control. Instead of teachers worrying about syncing, battery level, and app installation, learners should manage all of that. After all, isn't that a crucial skill for living in this century?"

My First 3 Days In A 1:1 iPad Classroom

My First 3 Days In A 1:1 iPad Classroom | ASU Block I | Scoop.it

"It has taken months of preparation and a ridiculously steep learning curb, but last week I finally got a class set of 30 iPads up and running. In just 3 teaching days I have learnt a huge amount about what works, what doesn’t and what the future of education might be. As a brief prelude to this, it is worth explaining that I have been teaching with an iPad since the beginning of term. I have an Apple TV connected to my projector and this in itself has been fairly revolutionary."
