One technology I would love to implement in the classroom is soapbox. So often because of time restraints, it's difficult to cater for every student  and their particular needs in a subject. This is a tool that could be used in a range of lesson formats, for both formative and summative assessing of the class. The only negative aspect is the requirement to have a class set of iPads, or other mobile devices, but nowadays so many schools are moving into that area that it just seems natural to implement technology which supports the full potential of the devices.…

It's a very inspirational article in that it shows how with determination and perseverance anything is achievable

We have started using iPad's in our classroom for many different activities, spelling tasks, prezi presentations, dictionary activities, mapping, maths rotation activities, Google Docs projects and the list goes on. I am looking to increase this knowledge with this course.

We also talk about the pro's and con's of using this technology (especially when it doesn't work the way you want it too!) and students like debating the uses for iPad's to be used in the classroom. One student found this funny Youtube Video at home that I thought woul…
