It's like being back in the classroom. This afternoon I have discovered this interesting article........after taking a workshop on 'iPads to support Writing' this morning. Typical. There are a couple here I haven't used or explored. I find that articles like this often trigger my thinking back to "I use to use that" or "That's right I downloaded that but didn't have a purpose at the time......".

The investigation shows that almost all objectives, teaching tasks and concepts of thecurriculum can be promoted with the aid of tablet computers. Nevertheless, a lot ofprerequisites in terms of hardware and software are required for a successful integration of tablets. In addition, there are some drawbacks, such as the lack of teacher training and slower text production.

Realism and spatially-correct environments elicit new ambitions for learning. Virtuality and immersiveness however is not a pandora for the essential problems like motivation, concentration and abstraction. Let's build upon the  success of gaming and check if a more playing attitude by the learner leads to certain benefits for longer term learning.
