With apps and digital content on the rise, District Administration discusses how mutli-touch-interface tablets may prove to be game-changers for K-12 schools. The article notes some key benefits to tablets–they’re lighter and have a longer battery life than laptops, which means they’re more mobile, and they lie flat, which means they don’t block the teacher’s view of students’ online activities. Also, tablets typically do not support multiple open windows or files, which means they may help keep students focused on their work instead of Web surfing. DA, however, also notes that tablet computers may not be ready to replace laptops in one-to-one environments. The article references Leslie Wilson, CEO of the One to One Institute, who says that tablets cannot yet deliver the meaningful personalized learning experience that must include student-centered communication and collaboration.
