I love this sentence: Skills such as communication, presentation, effective writing, among others, are now vital to all walks of life. In addition, scientific inquiry, critical thinking, exploration, and experimentation have never been more important skills than they are today.

How true. This article gives us the why and then proceeds to give us some great examples of this thinking at work. Share this with your science and math teachers!

Giving the learner a real life experience, to encounter, research, view and learn from a mobile device such as an ipad is what makes these 21s Century Students become engaged in important class material.  It is amazing how traditional courses can be also implemented using technology is a revolutionizing advancement for those who administer it and for those who learn it.  What better way to use apps for this type of teaching is what this report mentions.
