Our contribution to the Handbook of M-Learning is now published. Toegehter with Sabrina (she is also author of the book “iPad in Classrooms“) I wrote about our experiences with iPads in schools. The result is just a checklist we have to bear in mind if we are going to lecture.
In this chapter it will be discussed whether and to what extend the development of iPad/iPhone apps for learning and teaching, following the Human Interface Guidelines, really improves individual learning and teaching success. There is a strong relationship between good interface design and the ease-of-use of learning apps. Through careful user observations of students’ and teachers’ needs we provide a first guideline of how to use tablets in classrooms.
