Why iPad? – Thoughts From theEdTechTeacher Team
…the ability to create and manage digitalcontent with and for the iPad, the role ofthe teacher has the potential to change.Schools are starting to see these devicesas change agents simply because theyprovide educators with an easy toolthrough which they can attempt totransform their classes. With iPads, it’spossible to re-invision the role of theteacher to be less of a coach and more ofa curator of information. http://edtechteacher.org/blog/2012/04/why-ipad-thoughts-from-the-edtechteacher-team/
The device shouldn’t be looked at as a computer, because it isn’t… it is more than that.Mobile recording device (audio & video)Editing device (audio, video, images & text)Publishing platform (blogs, websites, video,audio and screencasts to YouTube)Digital NotebookDigital Research Platform http://edtechteacher.org/blog/2012/04/why-ipad-thoughts-from-the-edtechteacher-team/
The iPad is instant. You can use the iPad for 10minutes in class, slide it under your chair for adiscussion, pop it back open again. You can fit a book or piece of paper and an iPad on adesk. It doesn’t block your view of someone’sface. If you plug them in the night before, they will last all day.These things may seem trivial, but teaching isin many ways a battle against time and tabletsallow much more seamless transition between tech-on and tech-off activities. http://edtechteacher.org/blog/2012/04/why-ipad-thoughts-from-the-edtechteacher-team/
