It is really a pitiful sight when you see a teacher going on about something the students should be learning while the students, yawning away, resort to their cell phones to kill time.

iPads, iPods and other tablets are becoming more commonplace in the classroom, and schools are filling their devices with lots of Apps. Teachers could be missing valuable opportunities to truly embed the use of iPads in the classroom.

Tablets in general (and not just iPads) can do much more than just provide apps 'for everything'. Teachers could be missing the wood for the trees (and lots of them!)

Don’t use technology.… Do use technology.… - Mark Anderson's Blog

Don’t use technology.… Do use technology.… - Mark Anderson's Blog | Professional Development | Scoop.it
"Don’t get me wrong – given my Twitter ID it’s a given that I believe very strongly in using technology to support and enhance learning. The OED states that an evangelist is “a person who seeks to convert others to the Christian faith, especially by public preaching”, so ok… I might not be doing the Christian faith bit, but as an ‘ICT Evangelist’ I do believe that technology has the power to change our world and certainly the learning that takes place in our classrooms and beyond. There’s a problem though. There is a dichotomy of experiences, skills, beliefs and abilities when it comes to using technology in our classrooms. It’s written in to the United States Declaration of Independence that, “all men are born equal”, but it’s certainly not true when it comes to the experiences that our students receive in their lessons at the hands of some of our teachers and that’s before you even think about entering technology into the equation."
