Replacing Your Mac With An iPad: What Apps And Hardware You’ll Need [Feature] | Cult of Mac

Replacing Your Mac With An iPad: What Apps And Hardware You’ll Need [Feature] | Cult of Mac | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Can an iPad really replace a “proper” computer? Can a ten-inch, 128GB tablet do the work of an eleven-inch 128GB MacBook Air? The answer is yes. Kinda. If your work involves having two windows sitting permanently open side-by-side, then the iPad might not be for you (although you might consider whether you need both windows open together)."

"Your bank calls you to verify your recent $750 bill at an out-of-state Taco Bell, but you haven’t left town in weeks. You quickly contest the charge and request a new credit card, but when you check your wallet the compromised card is still there. You try to think of shady ATMs or recent cashiers, but nothing comes to mind. Nothing, except the online purchase you made while browsing the Internet at your local coffee shop."

How Much Are iPads Really Helping Kids in the Classroom? | Education News | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"The drive to increase technology use in classrooms has many asking whether the investment is more fizzle than bang, and whether it’s too early to tell how wisely the money is being spent. Education author Peg Tyre has investigated the use of iPads http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/01/31/ipads-education-gadgets-really-helping-kids-learn , one of the most popular classroom additions, in TakePart. She concludes that iPads may assist in some new classroom techniques, but by themselves, they may not be better than traditional, cheaper methods."

50+ Great iPad Apps for Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

50+ Great iPad Apps for Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"After publishing 30 iPad Apps Every Teacher Should Have  I curated another list of iPad apps but this time for  students. This list is subjective and is based on my own experience as a teacher and as an educational technology researcher and blogger. I included only the apps I think students REALLY need to have some familiarity with in order to better leverage the educational potential of iPad. Just as I said before no matter how many apps I include here there will always be some missing."
