University of Western Sydney, 19 Dec. 2010. Web. 13 June 2011. <http://learning21c.wordpress.com/2010/12/19/the-ipad-enhancing-learning-and-teaching-in-the-digital-age/>. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. QUOTES FROM “THE IPAD: ENHANCING LEARNING AND TEACHING IN THE DIGITAL AGE:” <ul><li>“ Productivity applications like DocToGo, Keynote, Papers, iAnnotate, Good Reader, and upcoming applications available through the iTunes store will have a positive impact in teaching and learning scenarios.” </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>“ For educators it may transform their practices allowing them ubiquitous work, paperless offices, new teaching tools in the classroom, the promotion of discipline innovation, motivating students in the use of technology, improving research collaboration and productivity, and enhancing networking.” </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>“ From the student’s side, key features to be considered include: e-books, note taking, impact on studying and reviewing, increasing student interest level (motivation), and individualization of curriculum.” </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>“ E-books may reduce the cost of education but the most important feature is that it integrates book content (book + audio + video + animation). Before the iPad, a book was a concept that has not changed in 500 years, but now an evolution has taken place. The advantage of this evolution is obvious: books will be downloaded straight into the device and frequently updated content can be expected. This will reduce cost…” </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>“ Paperless classrooms are possible now. There is no need for a recycling paper program and the teacher can e-mail worksheets such as practice sheets, laboratory directions, quizzes and tests directly to students. Students can digitally submit their assignments and academics will not carry several kilos of papers between home and schools.” </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>“ The iPad will make the task of searching, studying and reviewing easy, as all information in notes, articles, and books will be organized on the device. This will make studying to be more ubiquitous than ever. The iPad could provide students with the chance to take better care of their educational resources.” </li></ul>
  18. 18. JORGE REYNA’S IPAD CONCLUSIONS <ul><li>“ In conclusion, taking into account its current features and limitations, the iPad may not be a ‘killer’ device that will displace laptops, but a significant impact in teaching and learning scenarios can be predicted in the following years. Research needs to be conducted to study the iPad’s impact on educational settings in order to develop innovative approaches that will benefit students.” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Work Cited </li></ul></ul><ul><li>&quot;The IPad: Enhancing Learning and Teaching in the Digital Age « 21st Century Learning.&quot; 21st Century Learning.
