"If you are planning to incorporate iPad in your classroom teaching then you definitely need to work on some preliminary stuff before anything else. These are basically formalities and conventions students need to abide by when using iPad in class. Making students explicitly aware of their responsibilities behind using iPad in class will certainly help you tap into the full educational potential of this versatile gadget. I have gone through my archive and picked out these handy visuals for you to use with your students."

PracTICE: Creativity Examples With ThingLink | Embracing TECHable Moments | Scoop.it
Creativity: Often I get asked from people if "Creativity" can get learned and even some say that it can't get learned (BTW: that are the people who don't have creativity)....There are a multitude of tools which WE could use to foster the creativity of the learners, such as “Story Telling“, coding with Scratch and other programs, comics, and interactive images with links and videos such as “ThingLink“, which I will present here with some practical examples.
