"iPad workflows are really important to learning. Student work doesn’t often happen within just the one App. We need to be able to connect the work created in one App to enable us to develop it further within another.  Last night I met up with @joedale and we had a bit of an ‘App off’ and in our discussions, I mentioned an App called Figure (69p) made by the Propellerheads of ‘Reason‘ fame and excellent producers:"

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program | iPads in Education | 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.

How The iPad Can Promote The Development Of Non-Cognitive Skills

How The iPad Can Promote The Development Of Non-Cognitive Skills | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Although there are many reasons to use the iPads in the classroom, the development of noncognitive skills is one the educators should consider as well with the implementation of the device. Since the early 1980s, educators and employers across many disciplines have stressed the importance of noncognitive skills although the focus of most educational research has been dedicated to the relationship between cognitive skills and student achievement.

 

However, recent studies have demonstrated that noncognitive skills might be as important – or even more so – as cognitive skills in determining educational outcomes. Howard Gardner has gone even further by suggesting that in an increasingly interdependent globalized world “our survival […] may depend on the cultivation of this pentad of mental dispositions.”"

"As more classrooms adopt mobile devices such as iPads, teachers and technology integrators are faced with the question: “What apps do I install?”

 

That is quite a hefty question too. There are over 90,000 iOS apps in the Education category of the App Store. Since apps that teachers can use fall into other categories too, the number of choices is well above 100,000. Does your head hurt yet?"

It is not the product/tool that determines if it ought to be added. What/how does it comlement ans supplement waht the teacher is trying to accomplish with each student. So i woud train the teacher in a few of these and leave it up to her.
