The objective is essential to good teaching and technology is essential to the modern students learning.
It is essential to hold students accountable because they will soon be adults that are held accountable.
I enjoy the use of the ipad because it's flexibility. It can be used with the active board, handed out and used to explore the daily news, and to record audio for the ESL students. Students are held accountable by numbering the ipads and having that group turn in the equipment. In addition, they are responsible for charging the notebooks/ipads at the end of class.
