Learning with 'e's: Net worth of the iPad - iPad or iFad?

Learning with 'e's: Net worth of the iPad -  iPad or iFad? | Digital literacy & social media in school | Scoop.it

Much interest was shown in yesterday's post iPad or iFad? It focused on whether schools should provide iPads for all their students. In the UK several schools are already doing this, and all have received great criticism from pressure groups who claim that it is an expensive gimmick.

The iPad and Pedagogy | Digital literacy & social media in school | Scoop.it

"There is a running theme on this blog – ‘it’s not about the device’. I expected this view to be challenged by a visit to ESSA Academy in Bolton where they refer to an ‘ecosystem’ using Apple technology. I was prepared for technological practice that would be difficult to comprehend and a new building with an infrastructure we couldn’t hope to replicate. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
