You’ve heard of the iPad and seen it in action… but what purpose would it serve in the classroom? You might be surprised.
While there are plenty of education-oriented apps in the Apple App Store right now, most are a bit too expensive to deploy on a large-scale level such as multiple classrooms. For example, at $9.99, most popular iPad apps would cost about $300 per app for a classroom of 30 students.
Lucky for you, there’s a living document being edited right now by dozens of educators. That document (embedded below) contains dozens of tips on how to use the iPad in the classroom. From the Brushes app to learning how to play music, there’s a lot of surprising and useful tips.

This presentation is just one of the many fantastic resources being crafted from @tombarrett. He is encouraging everyone to tweet about this living document so more people can contribute.
