Over on our blog for our book on Differentiated Instruction, I wrote a post about what to consider when thinking about using laptops, chromebooks or ipads in the classroom. Many of the choices may be linked to whether or not we consider the "computers" kids use as their devices, or merely shared resources bolted to the classroom itself.
If we think that the work kids do belongs to them, why don;t we put it in the cloud and allow them to access it from anywhere?
Or do we think that learning and the "artifacts" of learning- papers, tests, etc. belong to the teacher instead?
What do you think about this and how it effects the choices we make in the classroom?
