What It's Going To Take For Teachers To Give Up Their iPads -

What It's Going To Take For Teachers To Give Up Their iPads - | Ipads in the Maths Classroom | Scoop.it

"For a variety of reasons (which we’ll get to shortly), the iPad is the pre-dominant technology form in K-12 environments. They dominate blog headlines, promote incredible user loyalty (you could say cultish, but you said it, not me), and make adults drool like teething infants. Walk by any Apple store and through their wide glass storefront you’ll see otherwise rational human beings swoon and fawn, listening intently as Apple experts explain how a slideshow works, how to use iCloud, or how to sync their iPhone with their iPad. School districts buy them, teachers buy them, and parents even send their students to school with them on occasion.

 

So it makes sense that this kind of popularity would carry over to the classroom. Educators have officially had their curiosity piqued. They want to know how to integrate it into activities, lessons, and curriculum in general, and judging by our traffic patterns here on TeachThought, they come bearing questions."

Richard Byrne states "This week I got the itch to go beyond anecdotal stories about iPads in the classroom and look for some more substantial research and writing on the topic. Below are some of the reports that I’ve been reading through this week."

Looking for research into actual iPad use? Thank you, Richard Byrne!

I'm hoping that at some point Apple will make the iPad a little bit more affordable. Hopefully, market pressure from the android world will change their minds.
