Les bonnes questions à se poser avant d'acquérir des tablettes.

Un IPAD ou toute autre technologie de ce type demande un certain investissement financier. Avant de décider du choix d'un appareil spécifique à destination des élèves, il est nécessaire de prendre en considération vos objectifs pédagogiques à long-terme. Il sera alors temps de vous poser des questions sur l'utilité de ces équipements et si l'achat vous semble pertinent , il conviendra de réfléchir en amont aux usages que vous pourrez en faire dans un cadre pédagogique.
