A growing number of schools are purchasing iPads and other tablets for their classrooms, in hopes that they will bring greater connectivity and transform teaching and learning. But using iPads with students can pose challenges for even the most tech-savvy teacher, including issues related to workflow, syncing, support, and lesson planning. In this chat, a teacher and school tech coordinator will take your questions on the instructional use of digital tablets and provide tips on maximizing their impact on student learning. She will also discuss how iPads have changed her views on teaching and education in the 21st century.
Jennie Magiera, an Apple Distinguished Educator, is the digital learning coordinator for the Academy of Urban School Leadership, a network of 25 Chicago public schools. She blogs at Teaching Like It's 2999. Find her on Twitter @MsMagiera.
