The iPad upon first blush certainly appears to be a compelling device. Like a bright, shiny new toy, it looks like something you like to grab hold of and play with a while.

Creativity in the Classroom The responsibility of ensuring the development and promotion of creativity in a classroom lies firmly in the teachers hands, and this is an aspect of education that must not be ignored. Rather than teaching students how to 'borrow' information from open sources, the teacher should encourage students to 'own' ideas that are created within their own head. The whole point of education and motivation in the classroom is to enable a child to think for herself with the pool of knowledge at her disposal, rather than a mechanical feeding down of unnecessary and irrelevant information. Encouraging creativity is a skill not all teachers possess, and only the ones who have this trait are the ones who are fondly remembered by the students in the future. Moreover, teachers who actively do this are the ones who prepare their students for future success in the best possible manner. Teachers have to set examples for their students at the very beginning.
