SWOT analysis of iPads for Teaching staff
I am currently strategizing (nice word) and one of my many documents I am working on is iPads/tablets for staff and/or students in a secondary school.
As I'm sure nearly every school will face this at some point, I don't mean of getting them, I mean of having to talk to the SMT about it.
Anyway I have a SWOT analysis so far for iPads for Staff (iPad is going to be the only option for staff)
Lots of free apps
iPad is market leader
Won’t integrate with users documents and shared resources
Won’t run software on the network
Added licensing complexities
No Flash support – Some sites currently rely on Flash e.g. mymaths , some moodle add ons
Access to a wide range of subject specific Apps
Off site possibilities (trips)
Personal CPD usages
Different pedagogical approaches.
Desirable item for theft
Limited lifespan of device?
Other tablets could emerge
So has anyone else already created something similar or have anything they could add to my feeble lists?
I will be doing one for students later.. :o
