This eBook is written for educators and parents who have an interest in mobile learning and especially in the use of Apple's iPad tablet. It is not a "How-to" manual but a resource for enabling more informed decisions regarding the use of mobile technology in learning and teaching.
It is a sharing of Chris Smith's own experiences and also his own iPad and some of the six hundred Apps installedin most are related to teaching and learning, some are productivity tools, some communication, a few to support his own life-style and a very few that are just plain silly.
With over half a million Apps in the Apps Store this selection is a very small percentage and the list is guaranteed to have missed some that may be your own individual favourites, especially when considering individual curriculum subject areas.
The eBook was born from the idea that he wanted to share some of the Apps collected that have a relevance to teaching and learning. Itís evolved into much more than anticipated.
It is clear, though, that the main goal in compiling this book is the hope of saving teachers and parents time when searching for suitable Apps or strategies to use in this challenging and throughly exciting period of time.
