25 Ways To Use The iPad In The Classroom By Complexity


iPad use in formal learning environments, by all accounts, is soaring.

Due to the almost magical ways it promotes interaction, that makes sense.

Each activity or task is also paired with a suggested app in bold, though other apps could fill the roles shown.

    I appreciate the information here. It is succinct, easy to assimilate the information, and applies a cognitive pattern, hence creating a springboard for learning apps and concrete ideas how to utilize the apps. It opened my mind to possibilities of assimilating other apps into the classroom.

    Would like to share but I, too, get the error message.
