iPads for inquiry

As we move to further integrate iPads into the hands of our students, it allows us to have an opportunity to shift our instructional practices from teacher-directed to student-directed.  The following apps are ways to provide students with access to information, such as YouTube or Brainpop.  It allows students to synthesize information through the use of Evernote.  They can create their own personal learning networks through Twitter.  Once the iPads are in the hands of students, it is up to the teachers to start to think about instruction differently and ask themselves “how can this lesson be improved and more student-centered now that students have access to the resources of iPads.”
