Believe it or not, as of today there aren’t a lot of videos on YouTube showing how the iPad might be being used in schools. Here are a couple that I found where people (mostly adults) are expressing their excitement for the iPad in Schools or showing the use of iPods in school (which as I’ve written about is an obvious step in the direction of using iPads in schools).
St. Andrew’s School in Georgia
From St. Andrew’s web site:
The Apple iPad extends our student’s learning opportunities beyond the school day and is another tool for the students to use as they develop the skill sets necessary for the 21st century. The iPad is used by our students in a variety of ways:
- Note taking and organizational tool
- Research tool
- Presentation tool
- Homework tool
- Sharing and collaboration tool
- Reading tool
- Discovery tool
