It’s been five years since I joined Twitter. To be honest, I didn’t know what Twitter was all about when I joined. I knew that I wanted to share what I was writing with the world, and besides my Mom, my friends, and my wife (sometimes) there was no one out there who seemed particularly …

Why iPads are magic and why that may (not) matter - Teaching with iPad

Why iPads are magic and why that may (not) matter - Teaching with iPad | Primary Humanities and Social Sciences | Scoop.it
The following is a guest post from colleague Dr. Guy Trainin, a professor of Literacy at the University of Nebraska. Dr. Trainin is a very avid YouTube author with very helpful iPad videos.

A few weeks ago I created two of my favorite episodes on me podcast iPads in the Classroom. One was about viruses and cells and the second was about the future of the book. (The videos are embedded below). These episodes show off the magic that iPads can create. This is not just a book splashed on a page, or games that drill a basic math skill. Instead, these are apps that show how much more can you get when you use a mobile devices to get a different kind of information.
