iPads in the Classroom

This page will be dedicated to ideas and resources for using iPads in the classroom.  iPads can definitely enhance engagement with current curricular goals and open doorways to more creative applications of student learning.  According to the first article below, there are three uses for iPads (or any technology really).  1.  Practice a skill  2. Research information 3. Create content.  Although I focused our grant writers on the third item, all three are legitimate means to increase learning with these tools.  I hope this pages is helpful as you explore how this tool can enhance the learning of our students.
