Why I like iPads inthe classroom:• Mobile learning• student engagement• students already know how to use it• it takes less time for student to get to work (no login and traveling to lab)• brings power of web & apps into the classroom• blended classroom with Moodle is awesome• starts to cut down on paper use• you can do video editing and production easily
How we got iPads• We asked!• Put together a detailed plan• Got admin on board• Kept asking...
Evernote• Make notes on the iPad and they are stored on the cloud• available to students at school, home, or on the go.
Pages or Keynote• Word Processor & Presentation program.
iMovie• Powerful Video Editing software• Take the video & pictures from iPad & turn them into a video• Student Example
