What Will It Take for iPads to Upend Teaching and Learning?

What Will It Take for iPads to Upend Teaching and Learning?

'As schools across the country consider which devices to invest in, they must first consider their big-picture vision for how they’ll be using these devices — and to what end. They must consider the needs of teachers and students, and come up with a shared understanding of their goals.'

This article describes the experiences of a middle school which is in its third year of piloting iPads to each student, grade by grade. The principal claims that 'the iPad program is doing more than just “enhancing” classroom learning. That is, it’s helping with homework management, organization, and other logistics, but the introduction of the device hasn’t yet become transformative, which is his ultimate goal.'
