Well, after much thought, research and saving, I finally bought an iPad for the studio!
I couldn't be more thrilled and excited! I've already used it several times in lessons and my students are almost as excited as I am! I have downloaded several free apps including flashcards (it's a whole lot more fun for students to do flashcards with them on an ipad than the handcut paper ones although they have their place too!)
It's easy to transport so instead of taking a notebook, pen, etc. with me everywhere to jot down ideas, planning for camps, etc., I just whip out the ipad! I didn't buy the fancy new version - ipad2. For what I wanted it for, it wasn't worth the expense. The original ipad works fabulous for me and was substantially less expensive.
So, I thought I would ask those of you who have one what your favorite apps are and why. How do you use the ipad in your studio and what apps seem to work the best for you? Has it changed the way you teach and if so, how?
I would love some feedback!
