iPads in Primary Education: Independent Learning using iPods in Maths (iPodagogy) - 9 views

    "Since the beginning of September we have been trying to maximise the use of 1:1 iPods in year 6 in all areas of curriculum.

(Apps for Maths) Recently we have extended the use of the iPods to allow them to support independent learning, and play a central role in effective formative assessment."

  • purchase and deploy all the applications centrally
    Great lists of iPad apps 
    Some interesting management comments re accounts and syncing.
