iPad Apps That Replace Classroom Supplies | HowToLearn.com | iPads in the Classroom and more | Scoop.it

"Even though back to school time is months away, IT specialist Andres Marcinek suggests that many traditional school supplies can be replaced by buying iPads for students. He suggests that note-taking be done on the Notability application, and that students use Haiku Deck to help build presentations. Other recommended applications include Edmodo, ShowMe and Google Drive, which helps students archive their work. "

As a teacher I try to expose children to technology. Some of them pick it up quickly, some of them are cautious. And yes we are preparing them for jobs that don't yet exist!

How Much Are iPads Really Helping Kids in the Classroom? | Education News | iPads in the Classroom and more | Scoop.it

"The drive to increase technology use in classrooms has many asking whether the investment is more fizzle than bang, and whether it’s too early to tell how wisely the money is being spent. Education author Peg Tyre has investigated the use of iPads http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/01/31/ipads-education-gadgets-really-helping-kids-learn , one of the most popular classroom additions, in TakePart. She concludes that iPads may assist in some new classroom techniques, but by themselves, they may not be better than traditional, cheaper methods."
