Class i-pads: are they worth the time and expense?

Principal focus of the project

The project's goal was to identify powerful examples of practice related to the use of mobile technology as a tool for supporting teaching & learning, and to promote the implementation of these modes of practice in new contexts, such as maths, Foundation Learning, ESOL, and teacher education

What is this about and what were the main findings?

Tutors learned that suppport from, and discussion with colleagues was invaluable, but also that they needed technical and pedagogical skills in order to feel confident exploring new techniques. They also learned the value of stepping out of their comfort zones and taking risks to try something new, such as using peer observations as a vehicle for CPD.
