10 Important Questions To Ask Before Using iPads in Class
1. What are the goals for iPad implementation? Engagement, access to digital textbooks, access to digital environments, primarily media consumption, media production, or a blend of everything?
2. What can the iPad do that is not possible–or is clunky and cumbersome–without it? That is, what learning problems does the iPad solve?
I think these first 2 of the 10 questions are the most important.
What can a iPad do that a tablet computer, laptop, or other resource that you may already have can’t? If you have laptops, is there an interactive equivalent? And moreover what can that resource you may already have do better than an iPad?
Related to goals, is there a measure of achievement and learning that can be applied?
