Ipad

The website below presents a very interesting report on the how the ipad can benefit as an educational tool and the impact it has on both teaching and learning. The study provides detailed information about the many uses of the tool presenting facts, figures, graphs and the views of both teachers and students.

In addition, I found the following paper (link below) very useful and highly recommend that you read it. Using two (pilot) studies the paper examines the effectiveness and usefulness of using the ipad for reading and discusses whether or not the introduction of this device can alter the learning and working practices of students.
