Research

Teaching and Learning

Implications for decision makers

Implications for different user groups

Review of Research Context

Why iPads

1) Most research done in this area

2) Common lessons to be learned from this for other devices

My Questions / Observations

1) Surely this is more about networks than devices?

2) The implications for CPD are more to do with mindset than implementation of yet another device - are we going to make all the same old mistakes? This is about how people interact in learning networks that are easier to set up surely?

3) What truly significant contribution have these made to learning other than a longer engagement ?

4) Do the benefits to learning accrue in different areas with different agegroups - I'm thinking about early years learners here - pre-school who have access to these devices and help from home? Does learning differ in different contexts with different learners and over what timescales?

5) Deeper learning/ Seamless learning - what parameters determine this - what is it?

6) The differences between top down institutional control as opposed to bottom up user choice from home.
