Essential rules for effectively using iPads in middle school

Essential rules for effectively using iPads in middle school | Go Go Learning | Scoop.it
"In the two years of being a principal of a school that has been using iPads on a 1:1 device to student ratio, I have learned a lot about classroom rules that are needed to ensure that the iPads are an effective learning tool rather than a learning distraction. If managed properly, iPads offer amazing benefits to learning and are almost limitless classroom tools. However, if not properly managed, iPads can also be a detriment to classroom learning and be a major distraction for students. During my time using the iPads in the classrom, I have found the following 11 rules to be essential for keeping the iPads as a learning tool and not a learning distraction."
