Do You Actually Type FASTER On An iPad? - Edudemic

Do You Actually Type FASTER On An iPad? - Edudemic | Digital Tools for Technology Integration | Scoop.it
There are many criticisms and barriers put up when one discusses the implementation of mobile devices in schools. These range from the philosophical to the practical and one that comes up often is the ‘fact’ that students can’t type productively on an iPad, especially when compared with a traditional keyboard on a PC or laptop. …

"My class used Final Cut Express to show we have our eyes on our goals!" --Pretty cool! Shows what creativity & active enthusiastic kiddos can do!


A project like this takes longer than you would think to produce - teachers who want to create videos featuring kids should also consider non-editing choices like Vine.


An iMovie takes me about one hour per minute to edit! So, if you're gonna do this with a class create small groups or like this video the whole class!
