I’ve been thinking about getting an iPad to help me with study and teaching in the future, or at least that’s what I’ve telling myself. So, do I really need one?
Some of my reasons for wanting an iPad are:
- there are many different apps I can use for educational purposes in my classroom?
- if the iPad has 3G (which if I get one that’s what I want) I will be able to connect to the internet away from a wifi source on a device with a decent size screen.
- there is the new ACARA app that would be very helpful while planning in a classroom (Alison Jackson blogged about this)
So my last question to myself is: Will it be a distraction? The answer? Most probably.
