Hello Karl

There are so many ways to use an iPad in an English class. I assume you want to use it yourself or are you thinking of it as a "class tool". one that students could use as well.
Here are some ways I have used mine.
1) I bought a dongle from an Apple certified seller  so that I can show stuff from my iPad to my data projector
2)Showing Ted Talks and other You Tube clips
3)I even showed a 1963 Disney movie to my class via my iPad
4) I take photos of notes I have written on the board, email them to myself(or students) and then upload to our LMS which is Moodle
5)Last year students operated the ipad while we videod speeches
6)I take photos of student work eg really good answer and show this on Data Projector
7)Students took photos of book covers and uploaded to the class wiki
8We created QR codes  and I use it to read QR codes
9)obvioulsy it is quick to google something. You might want to get a small group of students to research something you are teaching them.
10)Join the VLN- virtual learning network There is an iPad users group.
11)Go to the educamp website may get some ideas there.
This is a NZ website for educamps around NZ. There are shared docs for each one and lots of ideas There were  3 dedicated iPad events last year so those wikis will be useful.
12) Final piece of advice- join Twitter - lots of amazing PD , links and ideas there. Feel free to follow me @PaulineHendog and see who I follow.
Hope this is enoughh to get started
One app at a time!
Please feel free to email me at school.

Kia ora,

Last year I bought an iPad with part of the intention of using it for educational purposes. So far I have greatly increased my music collection and have downloaded Street Fighter and Guitar Hero. Does anyone have any advice for:
1. which apps to purchase/download, especially word processing and presentation programmes
2. How to use an iPad with a 2touch board and data projector
3. How to make the iPad an English teaching machine!

Thanks for any help,
