Why use iPads?
Learners benefit from open-ended play based learning that develops skills, knowledge and higher order thinking. This is where the iPad excels. It is hands on, manipulative, flexible, engaging and fun.
If we want to use the iPad as a powerful tool for deep thinking and engaging learning not a $900 pencil we need first to as the question “What is the educational outcome I want to achieve?” Ipads allow us to work with students to engage with new millennium learning to collect, curate and create.
