These technology tools serve to transform the classroom, give students immediate access to an ever-changing information landscape, and facilitate the creation of content for and by students. In addition to devices that facilitate teaching and learning, families and students have access to resources and tools designed to help students gain the most benefit from using their iPads and tablets for scholarly and academic purposes.
