Teachers in iPad Heaven

Yesterday, we stumbled across this headline, "2 Days to iPad Heaven", and of course we were intrigued!

What we found was this blog from a group of art, music and theatre teachers involved in a funded education project in Pennsylvania, USA. The funding is coming from a grant called 'Arts Educator 2.0'. 

There are some really interesting posts about the apps that the group are using on their iPads and their experiences (good and bad), plus the comments left by other teachers add useful resources and further reading, like this list of Projection Apps.

We also found a link to this video from one of the teachers on the project demoing the iPad with VGA out and its use in teaching:

The iPad Heaven mentioned in the headline above is a 60 plus iPad project. At lunchtime today, Pennsylvania will have a lot of happy creatives receiving their brand spanking new iPads. We are looking forward to keeping up with the development of the project and reading about their experiences.

Be sure to check out the blog and have a look back at some of the older posts too for some interesting reading from a teacher's perspective.
