I learned there are several uses within the classroom. One that I can see myself using is:
Select movies to view and again, hand them to groups of students. Then, have them use the iPad to write to a class blog or online course site, responding to discussion prompts.
1. Just like anything else in the classroom, I must set clear expectations and policies.
2. I will assign numbers to the devices and students.
3. I will assign jobs (who is to get the device before class starts). To save time and eliminate a mad rush to get them.
I am sure I have not covered everything....
