iPad professional development
With more and more iPads going into schools it is important to get the professional development right. There is a temptation to think that because iPad is easy to use there is no need to give teachers input as to their use in class. Actually we are finding the opposite is true. Because the iPad changes the dynamics of the classroom more inut is needed. Not the usual push this button training but real professional development that talks about curriculum integration and classroom management.
I saw this interesting article about the CPD a school did in Michigan – 3 days intensive professional development for all.
