Ramp up Your iPad Use

"When I work with teachers who are using iPads in their classroom, I get them to audit their apps and to ask so what? questions of the apps.  I need for them to know the learning and formative assessment potential of each of their apps.  If the apps is unjustified busy work, it is scrapped.  I then introduce this concept I have developed called layering, where the best features of one app are used to create content that can be enhanced in another app.  I get the teachers to base the learning intention outputs around the workflow of several apps."

Great example of using iPad effectively used in the classroom for layering apps providing rich learning tasks.

Layering apps on the ipad to get the most out of a few apps is a great idea. Too many people get lost moving things between apps.
