iPads in Social Studies

One of our 9th grade American Institutions teachers is piloting the use of iPads in his classroom. Mr. Bergstrom was able to use them for the last two months of school once things were up and running. He has started a blog about using iPads in his classroom entitled the iPad Experience.  In one post he discusses the immediate feedback students received by using the iPads the the Socrative app. He was also able to have students analyze political cartoons using the iPads and an app.  Check out his blog. Mr. Bergstrom attended Minnetonka's Ipad Institute this summer. Here are the presentation notes from the Ipad Institute. Here is Minnetonka data that was collected regarding the use of ipads.
