The 1:1 Initiative: A Student Post about the iPad

This year, our classroom experience has changed dramatically. Going from standard notebooks to a widely diversified mobile tablet can be a big jump for many people. Before the school year began, I talked to many people that thought it was going to be a hard transition. Now, half was through the year, I have realized what a great learning tool, the iPad really is. There are so many things that the iPad can do, that students can now use on a daily basis. Note taking, classroom participation, and organization has been revolutionized as a result of the iPad. Teachers being able to review for a test, with tools such as Socrative, has made the review experience more involving for students. What can i say to other schools looking into this iPad adventure? Go for it.
