Some Pros and Cons of iPads for ELT

Some Pros and Cons of iPads for ELT | ELT Matters | Scoop.it

If you are thinking of introducing iPads in your school, then I think by far the best way to start is just by having a few in the teachers’ staff room and letting the teachers explore them and see what they can do with them. If this can generate some enthusiasm then you could be on your way to having a 21st century language school.
