iPads versus Google : A Staff Development Observation

Approximately a week ago we hosted a Google/iPad Friday training in our region.  The reason we chose Friday was because so many schools in our area are on a 4-day week, thus teachers would not need to create sub plans for the day.

During this day, we offered 4 concurrent 90 minute sessions, followed by 4 more concurrent 90 minutes sessions.  In each set of 4, there was one iPad centered session and 3 Google centered sessions.

Here were the observed attendance figures.
  • Approximately 45 participants in total
  • There were 22 and 23 participants in the two iPad sessions, just over 50%
  • Of the rest attending the 3 Google session, at least 70% were using an iPad
What might this mean?  Educators are motivated to implementing an iPad into their curriculum.
