I have been working as a freelance consultant since 2002, supporting and advising schools on their use of Apple technology for learning and teaching. In those days of course, there were no iPads and the technology landscape was very different to that of today. However, there were many schools who were looking to Apple technology to develop a more creative and productive curriculum for their learners and I spent a lot time working with schools on digital creativity projects.
Over the past 15 years my work has developed in tandem with changes in technology and now much of my time is spent in schools exploring the educational potential of the iPad. This device has literally transformed the learning experiences and processes for many in education and it still feels like we are at the beginning of its impact.
I created the iPad in Education web site when the iPad was introduced to the UK (May 2010) and it has proved a popular and useful resource to schools and teachers. I believe that site has now served its purpose and now I will use this space to post iPad related articles and other pieces of relevant and useful information.
