Most excellent post! Thanks for this very educational, informative and real eye opening article! Richard and Steve – as teachers, your perspectives and knowledge are valuable. I’ll be sharing this far and wide. I will even do this from from iPad Air – I’m in my 50’s 🙂
Many obstacles that iPad cynics attempt to put in place when discussing a roll-out are based on untruths, poorly research and/or out-of-date information. I was delighted when my Canadian Twitter friend and fellow iPad blogger, Steve Lai decided to join forces, as we’ve done before, to combat this dis-information that floats around the education profession worldwide.
This Post explains how to argue a Case for iPads in the Classroom.
