  3. 3. How the iPad 2 Will Revolutionize Education <ul><li>In this first article Gregory Ferenstein explains how the iPad 2 will change the way classrooms are ran. </li></ul><ul><li>He states that this will help school districts suffering from class sizes growing since everyone can connect throughout the school. </li></ul><ul><li>He also brings up the idea of students still being able to do school work on snow days on the iPad. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>There has been a research that shows the student learn better when they can listen to the lecture multiple times. The iPad has a camera that would make this a bigger possibility. </li></ul><ul><li>Lastly the iPad could also be used as a projector so a classroom could view an app as well. </li></ul><ul><li>To view this article click here . </li></ul>
  5. 5. Personal Reflection <ul><li>I agree with Gregory. I believe that the iPad will have an effect on education in a great way. Classrooms are always trying to include the newest technology and right now the iPad is just that. There are so many ways a teacher could use the iPad to connect the students and it will be the future technology of the classroom. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Math That Moves: Schools Embrace the iPad <ul><li>Roslyn High School on Long Island is a part of a pilot program. The school handed out 47 iPads in December to the students and teachers in two humanities classes. </li></ul><ul><li>Right now they are being used to replace books and the students get to take them home every night. </li></ul><ul><li>However some parents are concerned that the school is spending all of this money before there is proof that iPads will help. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The article goes on to talk about other school experimenting with iPads as well. Some schools are even having kindergarteners use them as well. </li></ul><ul><li>Lastly they talk about some apps that are useful such as an app called “colorsplash” to take colors out of pictures to show in the importance of color </li></ul><ul><li>To view this article click here . </li></ul>
  8. 8. Personal Reflection <ul><li>The teachers that are receiving these opportunities in these pilot programs are so lucky. They are the ones who are going to figure out what works and what won’t work. They are being the forefathers of this technology. And by the teachers using them, Apple is creating more apps to be used in the classroom. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Evaluating the iPad for Education <ul><li>In the last article Bridget McCrea investigates to see if the iPad really does help in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>A college in Oregon tested the iPad and the Kindle but decided early on that the Kindle was no help at all. </li></ul><ul><li>They found out that the iPad was very helpful when being used in a classroom compared to computers or textbooks. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>They found out that students are less likely to get on Facebook or check their email since it didn’t have the same feel of a laptop. </li></ul><ul><li>Faculty will write up reports to determine if the tablets will be continued to be used in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>To view this article click here . </li></ul>
  11. 11. Personal Reflection <ul><li>I would agree that the Kindle would not be a useful as the iPad. The kindle will just make backpacks lighters and less money spent on books. The iPad will give students chances to look at things in a different way and connect as a classroom even in a lecture setting. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Conclusion Overall iPads are the best new technology that is out there for classroom right now. We as a society need to take advantage of what is out there for students to use in the classroom. Children at this age need to be aware of the technology that is out there and needs to learn how to use it to their advantage. We as educators need to be sure they are given this chance.
