I Thought Tablets Were for Swallowing?
Primary Science Volume 131, ISSN 0269-2465
It is only in the very recent past that computers have burst into the education world, revolutionising how lessons are planned, taught, and delivered. In an all-consuming maelstrom their importance has increased, with most children now entering school with some form of computer literacy. This means that many seasoned professional teachers have to undertake a vast amount of retraining to "keep up." However, another large but slightly more subtle change is occurring in the technological cyber world that will light the tinderbox of fear inside many practitioners: the "tablet"! Luke Carter explores the pros and cons of using tablet computers in the science classroom.
