How will the iPad change education? | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The iPad & Critical Pedagogy | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Pedagogy at its definition level says “The method and practice of teaching, especially as an academic subject or theoretical concept.” Critical Pedagogy goes much further however and links far more, I think, to how the iPad should be used to transform learning (more on transformational learning later)." - Mark Anderson

Some of the hottest tech gadgets found on college students’ Christmas wish lists are ending up on their school shopping lists instead.
