What amazing things technology is bringing into our life. What is even more amazing in technology is its unpredictability. We never know what will come next and in the same time we are alwasy looking for innovations. At first we started with technology, then things advanced to give birth to mobile technology and now we are living in an age of nanotechnology. Isn't it amazing how human life is developing into the unknown ?
At least in the field of education we have already started to reap the fruits of the integration of technology into our teaching and learning. Technology is helping students learn better and is demicratizing the way the access the knowledge. Teachers are no longer the sage on the stage , their role is only coaching and coordination.
Another amazing aspect of this technology is the wide possibilities it open for us in education. Now using iPad for instance , teachers can create ebooks for their students or even help them create ebooks for themselves. I have actually compiled a list of such apps below. I hope you can try them with your students and take your teaching a step further. Enjoy :
