Ubiquitous Access to Technology Underscores the essential role technology plays in 21st century life and work and, consequently, the role that it must play in learning. Students and educators need 24 / 7 access to information, resources, and technologies that engage and empower them to do background research, information and resource gathering, and data analysis, to publish with multiple media types to wide and varied audiences, to communicate with peers and experts, and to gain experience and expertise in collaborative work. http://ali.apple.com/acot2/principles/

Why is the iPad so suited for student use?•Children think with their fingers. The iPad is an intuitive interface that allows users of all abilities to access the technology to its fullest.•Affordability- with so many apps being available for $.99 teachers are empowered to acquire, explore and provide diverse and current software for their students.•Universal Design- Everyone benefits from using an iPad. When using it to foster independence in the school and broader community, students not only want to but are able to without standing out from their peers.
Universal Design for Learningis a set of principles for curriculumdevelopment that give all individualsequal opportunities to learn.UDL provides a blueprint for creatinginstructional goals, methods,materials, and assessments that workfor everyone--not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexibleapproaches that can be customizedand adjusted for individual needs. http://www.udlcenter.org/aboutudl/udltechnology
I think the first thing that we stress toeveryone is that the iPad isn’t a computer,nor does it try to be. On the other hand, aniPad can truly be anything that you chooseto make it: a reader, creator, consumer,organizer, response system, musicalinstrument… I’ve been telling teachers tothink of it like an empty cardboard box. Itcan be a box, or a castle, or a rocketship, ora cave, or…. http://edtechteacher.org/blog/2012/04/why-ipad-thoughts-from-the-edtechteacher-team/
As a straight up reader orconsumer of basic media, aNook or Kindle may be amore cost effective tool.However, as aneducational device, theiPad is definitely on top.Plus, an iPad can read allePub formats: Kindle,Nook, ePub, iBook… http://edtechteacher.org/blog/2012/04/why-ipad-thoughts-from-the-edtechteacher-team/
However, the true power of the iPad lies inits mobility, touch screen, cameras,accelerometer/orientation capabilities, andgeo-location services. When thinking aboutimplementation and transformation,keeping those items in mind helps to framenew ways of approaching studentinteraction with content, capabilities, andthe world around them. http://edtechteacher.org/blog/2012/04/why-ipad-thoughts-from-the-edtechteacher-team/
Additionally, because of the ability to createand manage digital content with and for theiPad, the role of the teacher has the potential tochange. Schools are starting to see thesedevices as change agents simply because theyprovide educators with an easy tool throughwhich they can attempt to transform theirclasses. With iPads, it’s possible to re-invisionthe role of the teacher to be less of a coach andmore of a curator of information. http://edtechteacher.org/blog/2012/04/why-ipad-thoughts-from-the-edtechteacher-team/
The device shouldn’t be looked at as acomputer, because it isn’t…it is more thanthat. It is a: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/
I would add that some of the features related totime and space are incredibly important. Bootingup a laptop and logging in can take 3 minutes onlousy school computers… The iPad is instant. Youcan use the iPad for 10 minutes in class, slide itunder your chair for a discussion, pop it backopen again. You can fit a book or piece of paperand an iPad on a desk. It doesn’t block your viewof someone’s face. If you plug them in the nightbefore, they will last all day.These things may seem trivial, but teaching is inmany ways a battle against time and tablets allowmuch more seamless transition between tech-onand tech-off activities.
