A colleague of mine emailed me a link to this article and I thought it was very interesting in the approach the author took when developing knowledge about the iPad. The author clearly articulates the frustration many have with the iPad as not being a computer, making it difficult for many people to find a meaningful use for the device. She reference iPad Fluency and Literacy in her discussion, which makes a lot of sense given the high paced, multi-literacy world we live. Traditionally, literacy was pretty straightforward and only meant one thing. Now, literacy is very dynamic with multiple meanings depending on the context it is used.
Here is a link to the article. It’s a great read with ten useful apps that may assist you as you develop your iPad Literacy. Enjoy!
