Most recently, my first graders have received a class set of LearnPad tablets. We received these tablets as part of a pilot project. My district is evaluatingiPads, LearnPads, Kuno and Microsoft Surface RT tablets. The overall goal is to determine what may be our "standard" tablet as buildings move towards purchasing and integrating tablets. There may be one clear winner or maybe even a tablet chosen for K-6 and a different one for 7-12.
Throughout this process, I plan to catalog the integration of the LearnPads into my classroom. Specifically, I will try to highlight and compare the pros/cons between the LearnPad and iPad. This is an exciting project for not only me but my first graders as well. We hope to provide some snapshots of our adventures along this journey.
