Using the iPad would make the research, peer editting process, and revising process easier.  Most students that enjoy writing do not enjoy the revise, editting process.  The use of the iPad definately streamlines the writing process!

Mary Kate Lavin's curator insight, January 23, 2014 10:08 AM

This article describes the writing process by using an ipad to organize, compose, and edit their written language.  Many students do not enjoy writing because of the process it takes for them to write (think of an idea, form the letters, make a complete sentence, and then edit the work)

"t New Milford High School teachers are adapting their professional practice as we continue to evolve into a Bring Your Own Device school where student-owned technology integrated effectively.  NMHS teachers are also beginning to to integrate social media tools that are blocked and banned in the majority of schools across the country.  Ms. Smith’s science class has gone paperless. Students complete assignments whether it’s homework, class work, projects and tests all online using various websites, such as, Edmodo, Tumblr and Instagram on their BYOD devices. They also use their smart phones, iPads, iPods and digital cameras to take notes or to capture information. All pictures, notes and assignments are posted on the websites, e-mailed or placed on their private homework blogs. This has led to more student engagement, accountability and participation in the classroom, peer reviews and instant feedback to the students on how they are progressing. "

This is a fantastic idea for students to combined PBL and technology. I think this is also a way for teachers to digitally document PBL. I use an iPad and Evernote every day for school, but I never thought of it being a tool for as a future teacher. Though this idea would could only be used for a small amount of classrooms right now, I love this idea and I want to keep it in my back pocket.
