iPads in the Classroom

For the last 6 months I have been trialling the use of an iPad in school. I have tried as much as possible to do everything on the iPad from producing presentations, editing and uploading movies, emailing and browsing, video analysis, score keeping and even my registers. But the biggest change to my teaching was the introduction of an ATV unit into my classroom. This little black box took no time to install and hooked into the school network easily. Virtually straight away I was mirroring my iPad screen through the projector onto the white board and with no cables in sight! I could now teach from anywhere in the class, I was no longer stuck at the front.

The Apple iPad 2. I finally got my hands on one about a month ago and since then I’ve been playing, adding and removing apps, trialling them in the classroom environment and generally trying to see if and how I can use it effectively and not just as a replacement for my school PC for administration and showing Powerpoints. The priority for me was to think about how I might save time doing things such as making regular notes, assessment points or learning/ disciplinary incidents.
