Jessica V Allen's curator insight, December 13, 2012 10:56 AM

As teachers continue to explore student centered learning and student negotiated inquiry, it is important that students have tools that can help them work together, investigate, and create explanations of their deep understanding.  iPads are a great tool for those goals and this helps schools see how best to begin that process... with careful planning!

Ludmila Smirnova's curator insight, December 13, 2012 1:45 PM

Middletown,NY school district won a huge technology grant for 4 years. They are planning to go with purchasing 1:1 mobile devices. Kudos for that!

Steven Blomdale's curator insight, May 18, 2013 9:24 PM

The article provides helpful hints for teachers and schools for integrating Ipads into their school and curriculum. Provides teacher with insight into how ipads are addressing 21st-century learning objectives and facilitating the integration of multimedia, communication, collaboration and project-based learning. Developing an ipad program can engage students confidently with technologies and make informed, ethical and sustainable decisions about technologies for preferred futures including personal health and wellbeing, recreation, everyday life, the world of work and enterprise, and the environment (ACARA, 2013).

 

It further develops key skills needed in the 21sr century such as learning and innovation skills: Creativity and Innovation, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving and Communication and Collaboration.
