There has been a lot of talk on here about using iPads, iPods and iPhones in lessons, and I have just read the thread nabout mymaths with the recent contributions by the man Alex who has been making apps. I have an iPhone and an iPod Touch, my daughter has an iPad, so I am reasonably familiar with how they work, but I have some questions about using these devices in the classroom: 1) If you use an iPad in the classroom, can you project things on the main board, and can you use an IWB to control an iPad? 2) I have download Alex's app to my iPhone but it is looking for another iDevice in the neighbourhood to play with - so I guess that's how it works - do these maths teaching apps assume that each child/pair of children has an iDevice? 3) Mainly, can one use iDevices in the classroom in any way besides each child/pair having a device and doing games with each other / against the computer? I mean, does anyone use them for whole-group teaching? Do you ask them to bring their own, or do you have a set for classroom use? Thanks for any help you can give me to get my head around this - I feel like it's a train that's pulling out of the station and leaving me behind!!
