Managing: The Nuts & Bolts of an iPad Classroom

Managing: The Nuts & Bolts of an iPad Classroom | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

Purchasing the iPads was the easy part. Managing them is another matter. Dean Shareski says that “iPads are meant to be owned, not managed.”  I think he is correct, but managing them still needs to be done for my grade one students.  Managing them is the nuts and bolts that makes our iPad classroom run.

Dr. Richard NeSmith's comment, September 19, 2011 12:38 PM
Now, I wonder if there are more variables involved here rather than the simple fact these people used iPads? What about SES and/or level of education? Might it be that those using iPads are from a higher SES than those not, which means they probably already scored better than many of their peers? Or, perhaps this study should seek to determine if those using iPads performed better WITH the device as opposed to without it?

You know, statistics show that days when more ice cream is eaten more people die, but is it the ice cream that is killing them? lol ;-)
