"Kathy Cassidy was so kind to extend a copy of her new book Connect from the Start: Global Learning in Primary Grades http://ow.ly/kgybo to me.

I was eager to read Kathy’s book, which is grounded in authentic experiences from her 1st grade classroom."
"Want to watch a video that is sitting on your computer on an iPad instead? That’s simple, and for most video files you can just copy them right over and watch instantly through the Videos app. On the other hand, if you’ve ever tried to copy a movie over to an iPad and discovered an error message like this, it’s almost always because the existing video format is incompatible with playback on the iPad:"
"My, how things have changed. Last year, it took me weeks to push 60 iPads out to my building. This year, it took me less than a week to push out 140 iPads!

I've started this article with quite a bold statement, but it's a conclusion that I have been coming too over the course of quite a few years now. I should really put this into context though, as most of the teacher training I do deals with pedagogical training for the use of technology and is most often delivered during intensive face to face sessions, usually with groups of teachers working in a computer lab. Though, having said that, I do still believe that many of the reasons I have listed below do also apply to other kinds of more 'mainstream' teacher development too, especially intensive courses.
