iPads at Marian
Hi from Joan and Jody and Marian College
Like eveybody else we are excited about having the opportunity to trial the ipad in the classroom. Jody and I are both iphone users and so this felt like it was just an extension of our phone. The keyboard is, by comparison, much larger and easy to type on.
The students love them and want to know when we will issue all students with one!!!
I am not sure if content creation is going to be part of using the ipad for us as we are looking at using them with our Year 8 wide reading classes. We are anticipating great interest in reading now instead of the usual comments of "its boring".
