What’s Different? • Instant on – no waiting for boot-up • Long battery life • Packs a lot in a small package – Internet, cameras, document storage, content creation, games, … • Apps, apps and more apps – many free, for so many different tasks. • “Walled Garden” – you can’t “see” your files like you can on a hard drive. Everything is controlled by individual apps and passed between them, to the cloud, or emailed out.
The Right Tool… • Use the right tool for the job – it won’t always be the iPad • How are we using technology to transform learning experiences? • SAMR – Substitution – Augmentation – Modification – Redefinition • Today we’ll see some things that I think the iPad excels at…
