Samantha Holquist started the topic iPads In The Classroom: A Legitimate Educational Tool or Just Another Distraction? in the forum Education 7 years, 12 months ago
Recently, my high school began to issue free iPads to all students, thanks to the contributions of a gracious donor, and I began to wonder how much use this new technology would be to students. More specifically, I wondered how teachers would adapt to incorporating this technology. For me, as an outsider, it seemed like a nice gesture, but possibly a new, unnecessary distraction for already overburdened teachers.
What Do You Think?
Is the iPad a revolutionary agent of change in education, or just another distraction?
