I discovered an app for the iPad, that would work great for teaching the gas laws. It is called "Soundrop". It can be used to demonstrate relationship between volume and pressure both to the visual student and the auditory. Can't wait to try it out with them when we get there!

I think it was kind of ironic when I tried to access this webinar from my IPAD but was unable to do so because I did not have a PC.

The webinar on iPads was very informative, however I attempted to log in using the web ex app only to be directed to use a computer running windows. Thankfully my husband wasn't using his laptop.

I am a computer lab teacher and would like to learn how to utilize the ipads in the lab. I would also like to learn the various free apps for 3-6th grade since each classroom teacher was given an ipad for their classrooms. Finally are there other webinars that I can use to help in training the teachers that could not attend and want to begin to use their ipads in their classroom

I am registered, but I have double booked myself this afternoon. Will this be archived for later viewing? I am very interested in seeing what advantages IPads have for students in the classroom.

Most schools have PC's. How can the justify a different platform (OS of iPad's) from what the school uses overall.

I would like to know good reasons why our Gifted program needs iPads. that way I can convince the administration that we need the iPads for our students.

I have had a V1 iPad for a year now and love it. It still works but has no sound because it got wet by accident. I just bought a Kindle Fire which is less than 1/2 the price of an iPad. Smaller but with a lot of functionality including web browsing and cloud storage. Twice the students could be accomodated for the same amount of money. Any thoughts?

Shellie Scott says:

I wrote a grant and received funding for 1 iPad. I love it. I cannot wait to hear how to make it more useful for my students.

A 2nd - 6th grade gifted/talented campus in our district has acquired a grant and purchased two classroom sets of iPads. I would like to know how to effectively integrate these iPads into the classrooms for all subjects. Also I hope to learn what apps will stretch these talented minds.

Elisabeth Williams says:

I'm especially interested in preschool 3s and 4s apps. I would also want to know that NAEYC would support the apps to better ensure appropriate for preschool level.

Linda Rinaldini-Head says:

We are considering getting an Ipad to perform laboratory simulations in Earth, Life and Physical Science. Would love to see the depth and breadth of such applications.

Michelle Meijer says:
16-Nov-11 02:50 PM

Is this seminars for students who have ipads or teachers who have ipads? I have only one ipad in the classroom and I am looking for ways to use it but it is my personal ipad so I'm not real keen on letting my students play with it.

Norm Neher says:
16-Nov-11 01:10 PM

We are considering a one-to-one initiative for our high school. This would be part of a New Tech High School initiative. We need to decide whether we will give each student a laptop or a tablet (iPad). What are the pros and cons of each?

Wendy Jotch says:
14-Nov-11 07:45 PM

Any great Pre-K Apps that you recommend as "Must Haves"?
