Session Description: A lot of schools and teachers want interactive whiteboards in their classrooms, but are these tools really worth it? While student engagement with class content is important, these tools may not be the best solution. In this session, we will examine the benefits and drawbacks of interactive whiteboards, as well as explore the educational possibilities of the iPad. In addition to educational uses, we will examine the cost differences between these two technologies. If you don't already have an iPad, you will want one after attending this session. Need help getting an iPad? We will talk about that too.
