Use of iPads in Charleston County schools show mixed, mostly positive results


See on Scoop.itiPad & Literacy

The Charleston County School District has spent more than $9 million on its iPad initiative, but the computer tablets haven’t triggered reading or math gains in three schools where every student has one.

Jim Harmon‘s insight:

I believe the three schools that didn’t show gains says more about the building cultures and teaching philosophy than it does about tech integration. If you don’t change the way you teach with technological tools, then you will see no difference, waste valuable resources, and possibly damage relationships between teacher and student.
