Using Tablet PC's in Art Lessons
I have been asked by our Art Department on advise regarding the use of Tablet PC's (iPAD or Android) in their lessons and how they could make best use of them. Our Head of Art attended a course recently and was recommended that using Tablet PC's would help engage students, especially boys.
I wondered if anyone is currently doing this and if so could you give me some info on what apps you may be using and how well they actually work.

Although many are mocking it at the moment wait for Windows 8 and put photoshop/your choice of REAL art package on them

Can't speak for IOS, but I've not found anything on Android even close to what an Art Department is likely to want, even PhotoShop Touch is rather disappointing (especially for £6.99).

Best thing to do is offer the Ipad as a gift for any student that gets decent marks!.

Snapseed is a neat little app for editing photos. However you still have issues importing photos on to the tablet (unless they're taken with the onboard camera) and then exporting/printing them afterwards.
I would see if you can bang heads with the art teacher and find some more interesting IT based art activities using conventional PCs.

Found a BECTA Study into tablets in schools quite interesting read.

That is 7 years old though, so not sure how relevant it would still be today...

Thank you everyone for your comments. I will have a chat with the Head of Art and see where we will go from here.
