It has become increasing clear that many primary or elementary schools are moving into the touch and swipe environment in a big way. This is sometimes part of a system wide decision but many times this decision has been made at the local level in consultation with the parents. In order for this move to be successful we need to ensure that the students have their learning scaffolded in much the same way that we have always done. Introducing iPads into the classroom is not an alternative to good teaching but rather it is another tool that good teachers use. This poster is one that might be used at the very beginning of a iPad program to help the students in their first few days with their devices.
One of the hardest things with using the iPad in the classroom is finding the time to go through all of the apps in the iTunes Store listed under the education banner. We have started to list some of the apps we've found under each of the Key Learning Areas.
