5 Ways to Effectively Integrate an iPad in the Classroom

5 Ways to Effectively Integrate an iPad in the Classroom | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Every teacher can successfully integrate an iPad in the classroom by remembering it is not the central focus of the classroom. Effective instruction is the central focus. Instead of thinking about what to do with the iPad, teachers must decide if there a tool that will help them complete a lesson and meet their objective. Rather than creating new lessons just for the iPad, look at current lessons and see if there are activities that the iPad can help with. Technology should make life easier."
