Some links that may be of interest to members of this group for the week...

iPads vs laptops - a useful post comparing the features of iPads vs laptops for those who are deciding which will provide the better functionality.

There are still considerations to be made from a usability and pedagogical point of view which aren't referenced in this article.

How 1:1 is making school more real - a useful list from one teacher on the benefits of students having access to their own device - would be interesting to see what other points might be added from members of this list - use the comments below to add your thoughts. 

7 Ways To Keep Students Focused While Using Technology - another useful list tha could form the basis of something you could add to or re-purpose. The basic message here again - learning should be authentic and linked to a learner's own experience. Bored students get distracted, on-task students use their distractions as a part of the learning process. 

50 resources for iPad use in the classroom - yet another list to hide away for a rainy day - plenty of excellent links and resources hidden away here - don't forget to use the comments below to tell others of the 'gems' you find amongs this list, and  how they've been useful to you.
