How iPads Can Create a More Engaging Classroom - teachingwithipad.org

How iPads Can Create a More Engaging Classroom - teachingwithipad.org | ParentingOnline | Scoop.it

"Not long ago, a teacher had nothing more to rely on than knowledge, textbooks and a few markers. Technology has slowly changed that in the past few years, with the Internet, multimedia programs and computers increasing their presence in the classroom. But with the rise of tablet tech, the student-teacher experience is facing a subtle revolution: joining the trend makes students feel as if they’re part of an environment that’s desirable because people speak their native languages. As the iPad becomes a teaching tool, classrooms are transformed into contemporary settings."

"We all panic when our iPad starts acting up, well no wonder its costly. But sometimes the source of the panic can be dealt with using  some simple tips.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, May 13, 2013 6:27 PM

Good manners and the Internet while not often used together in the same sentence, should be! Social media, or any digital communication amplifies human behaviour. You do yourself a favour to exhibit good manners and others will appreciete your presence.
