What Students Can Actually DO With An iPad | Technology for school | Scoop.it
Online, in workshops, and even with friends, I frequently get asked What can the iPad actually do? as a sort of challenge to the worth of the device. I would rather that they ask, What can you actually do with an iPad?

A look at using iPads with a focus on how an English teacher approaches the question. One example (of four) provided (and quoted):

I want my students to demonstrate their knowledge of the parts of the story.

Learning Objectives: In addition to learning the story elements, students learn...

 * To write a constructive review (plus three more objectives)

Followed by a project, in this case a book poster and suggestions on what apps might be used.

So perhaps the question is not what can a student do, but what can a student do with an iPad (that demonstrate their skills and expertise - think Bloom's taxonomy).
