There are iPads flooding into just about every classroom and school these days. Or so it seems. Judging by the amount of interest from educators, students, and administrators, it’s easy to see that the iPad is a becoming a topic of discussion (at the very least) for many of us. So what are some of the more interesting ways schools use iPads and how are schools currently implementing them?

 
Kirsten Naughton's curator insight, March 8, 2013 11:26 AM

Its natural for education to be moving towards these mobile platforms. I'm glad to see so many educational tools and publishers moving this direction as well.

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program | IPad Tools and Apps | Scoop.it

iPads have certainly become a highly desired commodity in education. Apple is reporting that schools are purchasing iPads by a ratio of 2:1 over MacBooks. However, that rush to purchase the latest technologies often precedes the careful planning and preparation that’s crucial to their success as educational tools.

Stated simply, technology alone doesn’t have the capacity to improve education. It needs to be woven into a holistic approach to education that encompasses thorough planning and ongoing review of the skills and competencies required by the rapidly changing society that characterizes life in the 21st century.
