Learning how to use technology in a meaningful way in a classroom can be a difficult task for a teacher. As an iPhone owner, I was fairly confident in my ability to use an iPad and integrate it with teaching. However, I now realize that I've barely scratched the surface of what it can do! The iPad teacher program is a great resource to help explore the capabilities and features of an iPad and how it can be integrated in the classroom. One thing I discovered that was amazing was the ability to have the iPad read a text out loud and highlight the words as it goes!
Although I must admit I had some difficulties remembering the terms for some of the functions, the book and subsequent quiz really helped me to learn and then apply the functions. However, speaking as a technologically incompetent person, I found the guide a bit vague on some topics, which made it difficult to understand the questions on the quiz. Hopefully as I continue my learning quest for technology I will become a better student!
