10 Secrets To Unlocking The Learning Potential Of The iPad

10 Secrets To Unlocking The Learning Potential Of The iPad | iPad for Science & Teaching | Scoop.it

"So the iPad, then.

Pop culture’s plaything and #edtech’s darling.

It’s an app library, a media consumption device, and a mobile learning tool that makes yesterday’s graphing calculators, smartboards, and laptops look like abacuses.

It is unclear exactly how and where we expect those miracles to show up. Student satisfaction surveys? Learner engagement? Test scores?"

This post goes on to explore how to "maximize the impact of the iPad as a learning tool" and states that first we must determine the impact we are looking for. The 10 secrets includes:

* Insist on transfer - and with the Common Core this is a crtical component to consider.

Click through to the post to read seven additional suggestions on how to unlock the iPad as a learning tool.
