John Pearce's insight:

A fairly eclectic collection of apps that you might find useful if you are teaching humanities with an emphasis on data driven and map based apps as well as some interesting game based apps. The nice thing is that most of these apps are new to me :). Thanks Sean.

The History 2.0 Classroom: Why Go 1:1 iPad?

The History 2.0 Classroom: Why Go 1:1 iPad? | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"In a response to a well written and thoughtful post that I recently read by @jmcconville1000, "Why the iPad is bad for education", I felt compelled to respond from my personal experience of rolling out a cart of 30 iPads in a shared high school environment.

Fundamentally I believe that an iPad can neither be good or bad. All it can ever be is an iPad. I argue instead, that when used effectively and with specific goals in mind, iPads can have a positive impact on education. Seeing that schools are investing money on these devices, the perspective to adopt is not a combative one, but rather one that explores how to effectively integrate the devices. Whether a school is 1:1, or there is a shared iPad cart, the devices can be used effectively."
