Taking Tablets to the Next Level

Schools are investing more time and resources into tablet computers. In this blog post, the final installment of a four part series, Justin Reich, a fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society and co-Founder of EdTechTeacher, and Beth Holland, a senior associate with EdTechTeacher, write about the ability of the tablet to foster classroom collaboration and meaningful connections for students and teachers.
“Imagine creating a learning context that spans countries or continents. Consider a learning environment where students run their own “class” outside of class time with peers, or even other teachers, and then come to school ready to take advantage of face-to-face opportunities. Used creatively, tablet computers can empower students to collaborate and share, to take more ownership of their learning, and to make deeper connections not only to the content, but also to their learning community.”
Links to the first three parts are also available in this blog.
