Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 27, 12:10 AM

Here is a great presentation filled to the brim with simple ideas for using iPads - from Tellagami (recorded animation) to TodaysMeet (backchannel) to Fotobabble (recording voice over a picture). Some of these are ones we have used at school before, others open up new channels we are yet to explore!

Hemlock on the Rocks : LA Times - As schools give students ... | iPads and Higher Education | Scoop.it
The reason: L.A. Unified selected a relatively costly product — a higher-end Apple iPad — and also paid for a new math and English curriculum installed on the tablets.
Fiona Harvey's insight:

This article refers to range of USA institutions comparing tablet and laptop usage  and notes that the iPad is more expensive because of curriculum  requirements  (Pearson  math and English added $200 per device).  One thing that stood out for me was the  comments from the education institutions, throughout this they mention bigger screens, being able to print etc, nothing about  affordances of tablets against laptops which indicates that staff development may be needed - devices are only as good as the people using them.
