iPad workflow with Edmodo Workflow seems to be a continuous topic for discussion with the introduction of iPads into the classroom. How best to distribute work to students, receive it back once they have completed it and then mark it and return it to them using only iPads? Can it really be that difficult? It certainly isn’t overly straightforward. Dropbox, Evernote and several alternatives are great, but they don’t offer the personalisation of a tool like Edmodo.
Cooperative learning and inquiry-based teaching yield big dividends in the classroom. And now we have the research to prove it.

They must be able to crisply collect, synthesize, and analyze information, then conduct targeted research and work with others to employ that newfound knowledge.

iPads changing the game for learning at Longfield Longfield Academy takes schools ICT to a new level, and the implications for other schools are important Longfield Academy: game-changing ICT Longfield, in Kent, gets its first official mention in records in the Domesday Book and in Saxon Charters more than a thousand years ago. But in 2011 it has been setting new standards for learning and teaching with technologies. The Longfield Academy for Arts and Sciences is thought to be the first school to offer iPads to all its learners and staff – and, even more unusual, there's no Microsoft.

iPads in Education
By Derek Bruff Last fall, for my first-year writing seminar on the history and mathematics of cryptography, I posted my students' expository-writing essays on our course blog. The assignment had asked students to describe a particular code or cipher that we had not already discussed—how it came to be, how it works, how to crack it, who used it. They described more than a dozen codes and ciphers.

The course blog provided an ideal platform for that task. A Social Network Can Be a Learning Network - Online Learning

I really like the interface of some of these and I think your kids will too. Find a couple that will suit your students and your teaching style. Please list any more that you know of in the comments.
