Transform Classroom Learning with iPads

In a recent article on edutopia.org, experienced administrator Ben Johnson shares how he feels the iPad can transform classroom learning. Computers allowed students to word process rather than type, to do media presentations instead of show and tell, to find information on the Internet instead of encyclopedias, and to graph data electronically instead of with magic markers. Teachers depend on computers to do the same, as well as using interactive whiteboards to increase the effectiveness of presentations. The iPad can do all these things, along with many other capabilities, and it is super portable, and that might make all the difference." As you enter into the mobile learning realm, you're without a doubt thinking about this topic. Atomic Learning has developed the Atomic Mobilize solution to help educators realize the full potential mobile devices provide in the classroom. No matter what stage of brining mobile devices in the classroom you're at, Atomic Mobilize can help. Learn more.
