Six Examples of iPad Integration in the 1:1 Classroom

Six Examples of iPad Integration in the 1:1 Classroom | Tech happens! | Scoop.it

"At Burlington High School in Burlington, MA, we are entering our eighth month of a 1:1 iPad initiative that began in September 2011. Don't get me wrong, we think the iPad is a great device for learning and gives each of our students a dynamic learning tool that can be used across the content areas and to accomplish a variety of tasks. Many of the critics claim that we are backing our students into a corner by giving them one brand and one skill set to learn exclusively on one device. This is not the case at Burlington. Furthermore, I have support."

Asking "why" you want iPads is a critical question... - iPads in Education

Asking "why" you want iPads is a critical question... - iPads in Education | Tech happens! | Scoop.it

"In his book "Start with Why" and the accompanying TED talk, author Simon Sinek claims that we're all very clear about “what” we do. In fact, you often define yourself by what you do - "I'm a teacher" for example. You focus heavily on "how" you should do whatever it is you do and usually develop a routine to make it easier."
