The iPad is a recent arrival in Australia and has been dubbed an “oversized iPhone”. (S5)

This session explores whether this is true, and investigates what potential exists for these devices in schools—how they work, what options are available for management, what sorts of software are available and how they might compare to netbooks and laptops.

Participants will be able to access these devices during the session, courtesy of Apple Australia (thanks Jessica)

because he likes playing,
and believes that play
is really important in learning
(at least that’s his excuse)
