One of the things we need to be doing as educators is to critically evaluate the resources and learning experiences that we provide for our students. This is even more important when we are spending vast sums of public money to implement new or innovative hardware devices into our schools.

It has been a busy few weeks in the MFL department at Berkhamsted.
We had a big day last week. A day when long term planning in a school and taking a measured risk paid off. Let me explain…
Welcome to the ‘iPad in Education’ web site - concerned with using Apple’s iPad for learning and teaching. Although this is based in the UK, the site’s content will reflect practice from other counties and contexts in order to explore and learn from a wide field. I am Ian Wilson, a freelance Apple Professional Development Authorised Trainer based in the north west of England (Twitter: @Ian__Wilson ). I have set up this site as I believe the iPad signals the opportunity for a transformation in how technology is used in schools, colleges and universities. I am interested in looking at all age ranges, all abilities across all areas of the curriculum and keen to see if the iPad makes technology more transparent and cross-curricular as it should be.

Today, I had the privilege of presenting to a number of teachers at the T3 Retreat held in LCISD! It was a great day and I’m so thankful I was able to be a part of it! I’ll post a recap of this event either tomorrow or early next week, but I did want to share one of the sessions I offered in the best way I could through the blog. Teaching with the iPad I have seen a lot of staff developments or sessions at conferences that go to great lengths to show you every app you could ever need for using the iPad in the classroom, but I haven’t seen one that actually talked about how you can use the iPad as a tool for teaching. I wanted to give a brief session that explained all of the equipment, things to think about when planning, how to prep the lesson, and finally how to TEACH with an iPad.
The school got me an iPAd2 to learn how to use it and how best to integrate them into the classroom.
I have been reading my fair share of blogs, wikis and other documentation as schools around the world are deploying iPads in their classroom. It is finally our turn at the Martin J. Gottlieb Day School to welcome 20 brand new shiny iPad2s (no cart, just individual iPads)
