It’s a tool, it’s a tool, it’s a tool. The iPad is not going to replace teachers or ‘fix’ education. There is a cost implication that must be taken into account and on...

"If you are like me then Dropbox is one of the tools you use on everyday basis. The cloud-based facilities it provides are too valuable to be missed and barring Google Drive, no other web tool provides as powerful and free cloud-based services as Dropbox. However, Dropbox per see can only do so much and there are several third party tools to use with it to increase your productivity"
This is a great list. I like the way these are lists of few, not of pointlessly large numbers. Try out a few and find what's best for you.

"Further recognition of the massive adoption of iPad by so many schools around the world, Apple have just launched two new sections on their iPad App Store. One section is aimed at teachers and parents with apps for the children, broken down in to different age groups and learning activities. "
Good, but for teachers in New Zealand the curriculum and professional development still needs to be connecged to these resources. Teachers can do this, of course, but wouldn't it be nice if there were some resources available which make those connections?
But are these apps really any good for education?

Notability is a note-taking app that looks like it could have huge potential in the classroom. I'm so looking forward to trying it out.
The app runs on a mobile device and allows users to add animated speaking characters to a selection of backgrounds or to the users' own images. You can then either use text to speech to write a script for the character, or you can record your own voice and the app will lip-synch you text to the character. This is very quick and easy to do. Here's how.

This is my most recent blog post which includes ideas for activities to get students speaking outside the classroom.
This is something I've gotta try. During their two week vacation, my students are sharing Voicethreads. This looks like fun! Something new!
Turn your iPad into a wireless whiteboard! Annotate PDF documents and images live. You can now project PDF documents (such as exported PowerPoint or Keynote decks) to a computer on the same local network, then annotate them in real time, all from your iPad.
ik vind dit een handige tool, omdat je niet zoveel hoeft in te stellen. Het werkt gewoon. Je iPad werkst als een soort server waarop je met een andere computer die op een beamer is aangesloten connect. Alles wat je schrijft op het 'whiteboard' van je iPad verschijnt op het bord. Je kunt ook schermen opslaan en een kopie maken.
Gewoon eens proberen!

With the prevalence of mobile devices in the classroom, Simon Hay explains that it's only a matter of time before ubiquitous computing becomes a reality in education
While this article is from the UK, the trend for mobile computing in the classroom will spread globally, which only supports the need for companies to implement the means to distribute digital content electronically.
It is already a reality in certain educational establishments, particularly those where there are 5 or less students in the class. Education then becomes group facilitated learning. For example, a student whose first language is Russian or Chinese, studying in the UK may not fully understand an English word. They are able to type the word into their mobile device. The result is an explanation of the word . They share the meaning with the other students. The new word they discover has now expanded all students vocabulary.
Here is an example: What is the meaning of infer? The moble device may suggest conclude. The teacher suggests deduce and assume. Another student may suggest understand.
The result: Students have increased their language, in about two minutes.

This looks like an awesome app. Can't wait to try it.
Taking notes in class and at conferences just got a whole lot more and fun. Check out these striking examples and learn how innovative educators are using them effectively.
Using iPads in the classroom isvery relevant to students. Technology is something they use everyday, and finding ways to incorporate them wth math will be engaging.
The idea of taking notes in a different form rather than linear and adding drawings will appeal to the visual teacher or earner.
BYOD classrooms can address a number of issues. It can solve the problem of not having enough (or any) devices for your classroom.

There are some big DOs and DON'Ts if you're on the receiving end of an iPad in the classroom. This is a guide for teachers to save time and trouble.
The investigation shows that almost all objectives, teaching tasks and concepts of thecurriculum can be promoted with the aid of tablet computers. Nevertheless, a lot ofprerequisites in terms of hardware and software are required for a successful integration of tablets. In addition, there are some drawbacks, such as the lack of teacher training and slower text production.
A useful ebook for integrating iPads into the classroom
I am once again grateful for all of the educators willing to share resources with the rest of us. Nik has provided an insightful publication on the use of iPads in the classroom.
In order to move from theory to practice in mobile learning, one needs a framework. The JISC Mobile InfoKit introduces its frameworks discussion by listing six 'course aspects' (my term) which may ...
The Kit itself is looking a bit outdated (2011) but it's an interesting framework.
This kind of model is really needed - very helpful. Check out the whole book (free) at http://www.aupress.ca/books/120155/ebook/99Z_Mohamed_Ally_2009-MobileLearning.pdf
