iPads in Education – Enhancing student learning by Lynda Cutting

Just a thought!

imageI was sitting in a beautiful park recently and my attention was taken by a young girl, probably not yet two years old, confidently manipulating an iPad. Later at a restaurant there were number of young children being occupied playing with their parents’ iPhones – at least I assume the phones belonged to their parents!
I see this all the time, even in my own extended family and I can’t help wondering……in three or four years when these children enter our classrooms ……….what will they expect it to be like…….and are we ready for them?

    I can only be optimistic in knowing teachers too have families and will notice these things or be the parents providing the technology.
