Jillian Schaibly's curator insight, July 25, 2017 4:41 PM
I chose this resource for educators to understand the importance of understanding how to implement technology in a classroom. Just because a school has iPads doesn't mean they will help student learning. There has to be an understanding of how it should be used to get the most out of the iPads.

The iPads go on a Field Trip | The Middle Pages

The iPads go on a Field Trip | The Middle Pages | Transforming Learning with Technology | Scoop.it
"Last month our middle school tech class went to Lansing to attend the MACUL ATT Student Showcase. While there, I asked the students to use an iPad to somehow create a project to document what happened on the trip. I gave them a list of suggested apps, but left it open for students to make their own creative choices about the project.

Several students used the wonderful Book Creator app to create epub books about the trip. Here are links to two of the books that can be directly downloaded into iBooks on your iPad, iPod, or iPhone. (Note, it will take several minutes for the books to download, then select to open in iBooks.)"
