The iPad is number one on American teachers’ list of “top five back-to-school tech tools,” per a survey by tech blog, “ReadWriteWeb” (http://macosg.me/2/ps).
The blog asked educators what is the one new tech tool they are most looking forward to taking into the classroom with them this fall. It could be hardware or software, a new tool, or just one that’s new to their class.
“The iPad and Twitter tied for the number of votes in our back-to-school survey,” says “ReadWriteWeb.” “But if you combine those teachers who listed the iPad with those who voted for tablets, along with the shout-out for the 15 netbook mini-lab, then the educators who responded are most excited about bringing mobile hardware in the classroom. Many teachers noted this will be their first experience with 1-to-1 technologies.”
