The iPad as a Teaching Slate
Many teachers and schools are snapping up iPads, especially since the iPad2 has dropped the price of the 1st gen. How could you use the iPad in class as a teaching tool? Alive in Five shares a nifty app called Splashtop ($4.99) from the iTunes store that allows you to use your iPad as a virtual slate of your computer. If your class computer is used to display, via projector, then you can explore web content, open apps, and use the iPad as a slate device. The benefits are mobility and a cool factor your students will enjoy.
