First use – definitely exploratory! For something a bit different I gave the Y10 Geology students four definitions to learn, and then asked the to “produce the T&L materials that I would use when I next teach the lesson”. After some initial stabbing – an iPad is a magazine that you have to find out how to turn the pages… – each pair of students came up with a product. The range consisted of; comic strip info presentation, talk to the camera based video and animation (one of rather dubious relevance). For a first go, this was OK. The students were interested in the devices and I don’t doubt that, as they become ‘more of a tool, less of a toy’ the students will engage in some useful alternative learning of a deeper nature.
