Kan. teachers prepare to implement iPads - Courtesy of ASCD Smart Brief

Here is a great article on possible uses in the classroom for ipads - k to 12.  Enjoy!!

Teachers in Abilene, Kan., have been spending the summer learning how to incorporate iPads into their classroom instruction following the district's decision to purchase an iPad for every student in second through 12th grades. The teachers are learning how to use iPad applications to individualize instruction and how to engage students through subject-specific lesson plans. For example, a social studies student might demonstrate an understanding of a subject by downloading and labeling photos, while literature students can read ebooks with word definitions available at their fingertips.
