Sketched this out last week–not quite a napkin this time, but the back of a sheet of paper at a coffee shop–when thinking about how I most often see iPads used in the classroom. Thought I’d share it in a drawing rather than a post, and then get your thoughts.

Is this what you’ve seen?

Can this approach be effective?

Does the effectiveness of this “model” depend on content area, grade level, or some other factor?

Are there other ways? Is this just a transitional model until schools can adapt to more mobile learning?
