iPads at Burley: Photography with 5th Grade Students | mobile devices and apps in the classroom | Scoop.it

"In the next few weeks these 5th grade students are going to be focusing on photography to accompany their writing with both their classroom teacher as well as with me during Technology. The remarkable thing about having only 30 minutes to introduce this very large topic with my students but doing so with iPads, is that all 29 5th graders are sitting on the rug in front of me with a camera, digital darkroom, and publishing suite resting on their laps!"

iPads: What are we learning?

Thus, while school jurisdictions have traditionally planned and supported technology within an enterprise environment, iPads present as a square peg. iPads not only run in contrast to our more systemic ways of planning for technology integration but they also offer a new way of interacting with content.
