another uuseful research about iPads in the classroom. Gives an insight of erent experience,

I specially liked the words:

“No technology has an impact on learning in its own right; rather, its impact depends on how it is used… The question that should be asked is not ‘Can iPads support learning?’ but rather ‘How can iPads be used to support collaborative learning, or exploratory learning’, or whatever…”

Educators, however, generally do not take this approach to technology. Far too often, school leaders fail to consider how technology might dramatically improve teaching and learning, and schools frequently acquire digital devices without discrete learning goals and ultimately use these devices in ways that fail to adequately serve students, schools, or taxpayers.

Boser acknowledges that technology holds the potential to help students with academic achievement, but he points out shortcomings that are currently stifling success.  To start, he argues, states do not evaluate the outcomes they get for their technology spending, charging that currently states are only focused on the presence of the technology and not its return on investment. - See more at: http://www.educationnews.org/technology/report-schools-are-wasting-education-technologys-potential/#sthash.73QYOWmD.dpufBoser acknowledges that technology holds the potential to help students with academic achievement, but he points out shortcomings that are currently stifling success.  To start, he argues, states do not evaluate the outcomes they get for their technology spending, charging that currently states are only focused on the presence of the technology and not its return on investment. - See more at: http://www.educationnews.org/technology/report-schools-are-wasting-education-technologys-potential/#sthash.73QYOWmD.dpufducators, however, generally do not take this approach to technology.

Some very critical analysis of the way technology is used in education in the US

The Future of Tablets in Education: Potential Vs. Reality of Consuming Media | MindShift | Education Trends | Scoop.it

In this four-part series, we’ll use the Someday/Monday template to explore four dimensions of using tablets, such as the iPad, in educational settings, examining how teachers can take students on a journey from consumption of media to curation, creation, and connection. Here, we’ll start with consumption.
