"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

Mrs. Howard's insight:
We are getting iPads in the fall! Can't wait to try these out!
Does the iPad foster or hinder creativity? Is it a comprehensive tool or just a mere distraction? Do we use the iPad just because it makes our classroom look cool? Are we missing the forest for the trees here?
Mrs. Howard's insight:
I think we expect technology to teach for us. However, it is important to use the tools to facilitate the curriculum based on what we know about how to teach. If we simply buy iPads and expect them to take over the role of the educator or take the place of planning, we will have poor results. However, if we are deliberate with our planning and keep the students as our focus, iPads can be a wonderful tool.
