Simply handing a teacher an iPad in advance won’t serve to address these challenges when the school year starts
Teachers need instruction on how to incorporate the devices into the learning process, which is quite different than trying out a few apps
School administrators should be explaining to their constituents that the iPad supports essential skill areas — complex communication, new media literacy, creativity, and self-directed learning.
