My 3 Goals for Using the iPad in my Classroom

  1. Get an iPad!
  2. Download cool iPad apps to use in an art classroom see the above post, Art Apps and Web Tools
  3. Use in stations with my students


2 Tools to Explore Further

  1. Google Hangouts: I hope to be about to introduce students to real live artists working in the world.
