Learning tool or toy?

Are iPads a toy or a tool?

My answer; both.  It depends entirely on how you use them.  My goal is to use them in ways that improve traditional learning activities by:
1.)  saving time.
2.)  allow for differentiation to meet each child's learning needs.
3.)  motivating reluctant learners.
4.)  make learning fun.

So, I plan to blog on here about specific apps and how they can replace something you already do AND meet the above goals.  I may come up with something catchier, but for now I'll plan on calling them Teaching Tools.  for example, the next post will be Teaching Tools:  Word Families
