Integrating Tablet Technology
What are some best practices for integrating a tablet into your curriculum? It seems to me that many teachers use tablets as supplements for books and spiral notebooks. Something that I am interested in is how can brick and mortar teachers integrate the tools of elearning into their own curriculum. When school districts integrate tablets into the classroom, I find that many teachers struggle at integrating the technology into the class time; however, would it be more appropriate to create elearning modules for our students to use outside of the classroom to replace the traditional lectures and presentations many teachers still rely on today. The tablet seems like a useful tool for students to use at home, on the bus, or on the town. How can we think sideways and integrate this disruptive technology effectively? Thoughts? Examples?
