In PA we are blessed to have had several years of a one-to-one laptop initiative called “Classrooms for the Future” or CFF for short. The coaches across the state are part of a listserve which is sometimes dormant and other times a flurry of questions, responses, and sharing. Today, the iPad has become the topic du jour.
In posting there about our AE2.0 iPad launch next week, I thought I’d share here one of the items that came in response to the iPad sharing. Eric Leach, and his colleague are doing a spreadsheet survey to collect and display the best iPad apps. I’m sure many of us can add our favorites to this list. Here’s a wiki on iPads for teaching mentioned by Virgina Glatzer. And here’s a great article appeared in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on September 2nd about a middle school pilot of the iPad at Bethel Park SD in Western PA this year.
