I have wondered what the big deal is about using Ipads in schools as they don’t do anything a textbook or laptop can do and in most cases can’t even do that. They are not providing anything beyond what a regular teacher and their current resources can provide just
substituting, giving students content without creating anything.
Being reliant on apps has its limitations with the development of appropriate educational formats.
The Apps can be classified into 4 Categories according to Means.
The added 21st Century pedagogical components of communication and collaboration need to also be considered, for App classification.
This reading highlighted the fact that the study did not find a single ‘Educational’ App that met the modern understanding of learning.
This is the evidence to back my opinion that they are not the modern classroom Teaching and learning hero, people believe they are going to be.
There are some Apps the research did believe to be “Standout” in Educational experiences.
