The biggest and most oft-heard criticism of the iPad usually revolves around it not behaving like a desktop PC or laptop. The people making this complaint are simply missing the point. Apple aren’t trying to make a laptop replacement, why would they? They make a couple of extremely good ones! The iPad is a new kind of device that asks you to think and work differently.

iPad in Education for Dummies: Interview with Author Sam Gliksman

iPad in Education for Dummies: Interview with Author Sam Gliksman | m-learning, mobile Learning, Teaching and Learning on the Go | Scoop.it

Teachers around the world are catching onto new learning technology, primarily focusing on tablets ... Sam Gliksman has written the black-and-yellow handbook to help simplify the iPad in Education. In addition to highlighting innovative lesson plans and informative anecdotes, Gliksman aims to promote an overall educational philosophy, one that integrates new technology rather than forcing it. The book will be out in January, but TabAdapt got a first look at what’s inside.

Sam Glisksman hits the nail on the head:

 

"....ERA: Are tablets the future of education?

SG: I don’t think any technology is “the future” of education. The dilemma I had in writing the book is that it’s a dummy’s book, and if you’re familiar with the dummy series, it’s really a how-to series: ‘tap here,’ ‘use this.’ As far as possible I’ve tried to integrate education into the book and principles of education as much if not more than the technology itself. That’s really what it’s more about. I don’t see the future of education tied to a particular technology as much as I do see it tied to more of a philosophy of education that’s more student-centered, more experiential, discovery learning, less frontal content delivery. Any technology can be used in a multitude of ways, and I don’t think using technology to support the old frontal content delivery systems is a successful model. I don’t think it’s necessarily the future of education; it could be...."

Sorry, Dummies? How about iPad in Education for Teachers?

Not sure the term 'dummies' is applicable, but might be an interesting read.
