Tomorrow belongs to the tablet

Tomorrow belongs to the tablet | iPads in high school | Scoop.it
Is Apple's next big thing already out there?

 

This raises a more basic question: Why are people willing to spend $329 on an iPad when they can get an Android tablet for $200? It's not because the iPad is prettier or more powerful. It's because it's more useful – because its App Store is packed with more apps than you'll find for any other tablet. Apple says it has 350,000 tablet-specific apps in its store; Google has never disclosed the number of tablet-specific Android apps, but anyone who's ever perused the Play store knows the number is tiny. This is a crucial advantage, because unlike a phone, a tablet is pretty useless without great apps.

iPads in the Public Schools | Duke Today Mobile

Carol Ann Sass's insight:

"If your school district has embraced student-centered learning, if it has redeveloped its curriculum, and if it no longer thinks that end-of-grade testing measures what students today do learn and need to learn, then computer-aided learning and digital learning and learning as play are wonderful. Embrace those iPads!  But the metrics, the methods, the goals and the assessments all need to change."

Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org: Transferring Photos and Videos Off Your #iPad

Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org: Transferring Photos and Videos Off Your #iPad | iPads in high school | Scoop.it

"When I read this blog entry entitled, Can I Transfer Photo Albums Created On My iPad to My Windows PC? http://ow.ly/kwstj ; I couldn't help but feel it was a bit short...here it is:

 

If you are using the Photos app to create albums on the iPad – those albums will not transfer to the PC. Those albums do not actually contain the photos or copies of the photos. They merely have a pointer to the original photo in the photos app. The albums created in the Photos app are for local photo organization on the iPad only. You can transfer photos but not albums.

 

While this is true, there are ways to make transferring photos organized in albums easy, regardless of Windows/Mac computer. "
