Melissa Marshall's curator insight, November 16, 2013 9:15 PM

An interesting article explaining the benefits of using tablets. I find it is still very effective to get kids to WRITE on paper and ACCESS content using their device. It helps them remember and keeps their recording skills - some of the weaker students lose their train of thought in the switch between apps on the iPad.
