iPad in Art » iClevedon | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"The iPad is the professional artists dream. No more carrying around massive portfolios of work – you can just carry around all of your work, analogue (photos of your work) or digital (created on your iPad) all on your iPad. It fits in with Art education in that way too.

 

Students can photograph, blog, eportfolio, document, review, collaborate and share their artwork using iPad and that’s before you even start thinking about the plethora of Art apps for drawing, designing and creating. There are lots of apps that support the teaching of Art and many many apps that support learning too."
