Thank you for the rescoop. My absolute favorite on that list is Classroom 2.0. The leader, Steve Hargadon works so hard to bring us quality content and interviews from top influencers. Best of luck to you.

Teachers Guide on The Use of iPad in education

Teachers Guide on The Use of iPad in education | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it

"iPad is a cool versatile tool that has a huge potential in education. It is widely  believed that iPad has started tranforming the face of education and revolutionizng modes of learning. Results coming out of pilot studies on the integration of iPads in the classroom seem to be promising. Reed College, for instance, took the Apple iPad for a spin in 2010 and was pleased with the tablets performance as an educational tool. As part of a pilot program, Roslyn High School on Long Island handed out 47 iPads on Dec and the school district hopes to provide iPads eventually to all 1.100 of its students. Another report shows that hundreds of middle school students in the central San Joaquin Valley, Calif, are using curriculum apps for their classwork and homework."
