Not getting caught up in the need to constantly be searching for, trying out, and downloading apps for each content area seems key to a successful implementation of iPads in the classroom. Teachers need to be able to rely on a core set of content creation apps that work consistently for all subject areas and then supplement with a few specialized apps that enhance their content curriculum.
I'm excited to get started on our district's 1:1 rollout and can't wait to get iPads into the hands of our students. So much needs to be done in advance though to ensure a smooth rollout. Lots of work to be done by many this summer.
