iPads in Education - Apps, Articles and the Agile Space

Ian Wilson writes about iPads in Education. His site offers recommendations for apps in art, geography, history, literacy, numeracy, music, productivity and science. He also comments on why schools should use iPads. Most intriguing is his description of “technology spaces” as a means of classifying five broad categories of educational technology devices.

I’ve added Ian’s site to my list of Resources, found in the lower right corner of this page.
