Mobile devices . . . the future of technology in our schools
No device in itself transforms learning - effective and creative teaching does that. However, the iPad does offer educators and schools an opportunity to think different and in the process transform teaching and learning within the classroom.

Constructive Apps generally provide the most scope for the development of critical thinking, creativity and collaboration but students should use whatever App supports the functionality they need to complete their daily activities.
