Here is a small update on how the HMH-Fuse iPad Algebra I Textbook Pilot study is going.
There is not a lot of data yet on whether the iPad classes are doing better than the standard textbook classes, but so far it sounds like this teacher and I are drawing the same conclusions: The iPad is not a cure-all, but it does make learning more fun for students. It gives some students (usually the most uninterested) an opportunity to be interested in the material.
One thing that this teacher is doing that I might try is using videos in the classroom. It seems like a great way to differentiate instruction, something that I have not yet accomplished using the iPads. I will keep you updated on how that goes!
