The way we use the iPad in our classes will be individual but observations and ideas from other teachers will enhance our understanding of the place the device and technology have in the modern classroom. It is important that you read widely about the experiences of other teachers and the articles that I have been selecting are to give you a broad range of ideas and strategies that May interest you.  If you glean one small snippet of advice then the exercise has been worth it!  Good learning.

Good, but for teachers in New Zealand the curriculum and professional development still needs to be connecged to these resources. Teachers can do this, of course, but wouldn't it be nice if there were some resources available which make those connections?

I loved this article. It broke down ten ways in which iPads are productive in aiding children how to learn. The aid of pictures with headlines and quotes made it enjoyable to read. Instead of one long story it was broken down nicely so that it is easy to retain the information that you read. I particularly enjoyed the insight into the "the risk - taker" aspect of using the iPad. It is great to know that technology is aiding in the education of future generations

Sarah-Jane Davies's insight:

The introduction of iPads into the classroom is a very controversial topic. Many people believe that it is not suitable for school children. For example, people say that children lose their ability to write since they are no longer using pens or paper. However, this article fives many examples of why it is actually a positive thing. The article is fun to read since it is written in a concise list and contains interesting cartoon pictures at each point. Each point is also extended by reasons and examples of why the specific point is positive.  The viewpoint is legitimate since it is coming from a teacher. The teacher has a good perspective since he deals with children every day.

How much more would children learn when they ask their 3-year-old, "What do you think ..."
