This is a great tool which matches up YouTube music videos to lyrics. Just enter the name of a singer you like then select a song. You'll see the lyrics appear beside the song. Great way to improve your language skills.

I looked at this app about a year ago and at the time it didn't look very impressive. It looks now though like they have done considerable work to improve it. GoClass could be a great way to create and deliver your lessons directly from your iPad to your students' iPads or Android tablets (there is an Android version too). Very handy.

Some Pros and Cons of iPads for ELT

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

From a quick comparison of these two lists it may well look like the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages, but those disadvantages are BIG, especially the cost. 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.
