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.

Useful iPad Reference Guide for Educators

A few weeks ago I posted here a poster on iPad basics which many of you have downloaded to use with their students in the class. Today, I am sharing with you another great resource on iPad. This is not a graphic but a quick reference card on everything you and your students need to know about iPad. From the hardware to networking features , this little manual can serve as a leading guide to a better manipulation of  your iPad.
 I am not sure how much iPading you are doing in your classroom but whether you use iPad just occasionally or you adopt it as a consistent learning and teaching tool,  the reference card below will definitely give you a hand in improving your iPad use. I suggest that you share it with your students and go through it with them section by section and make sure they understand it before they start using their iPads again.

None of these apps are free but there is quite a variety in terms of what is required and the content used. Some familiar lie Sentence Builder and Storybuilder.

Going to quote Apple Distinguished Educator Tom Woodward on this: "...one of the best things I've seen for the iPad (or for any computer for that matter) and upper level math (algebra/calculus/physics).  It is absolutely the only app I've ever seen that makes math/physics teacher giggle giddily."
