               1. There are many uses for an ipad in the classroom. The ipad can help both the student and teacher. The students learn more,  can do more, and work together and get more than just there ideas out.  Students learn more from viewing more detailed presentations, they can see different parts of the world while just sitting at there desk, learn about whats happening in the world at that exact moment, practice problems and record notes. They can do more because with the ipads they can create more complex documents and presentations also they can have blogs and voice there own opinions to a broader audience.  Students get to work together with other people by using live broadcasts or making there own websites also they can use websites such as google docs to work with other students without actually being with them. If the ipads are used right they can be extremely helpful but teachers still need to watch and make sure the student stays on track when using the electronic device.

Considering how integrated technology has become in even basic courses, it seems pointless to resist lest one become outdated and useless as a teacher.

Elaine Brent's insight:

I suppose with a title of Don't Panic, this really isn't appropriate but it is, sadly, so true for many people in the teaching profession now I really thought it needed adding. For those (like me) still teaching - always remember we are there to help children learn and not just to jump through hoops often set by people who haven't ever spent significant time teaching in real situations .....

Tablets are the new focus for ICT4D in education, but teacher taining is still the key to success with any ICT project in education.
