    I recently attended a workshop that recommended using an Ipad in the classroom as a children's camera, letting the children use it around the room to take pictures. I have recently upgraded my Ipad, but my old one would be perfect for this. I can remove all the apps, and put restrictions on it so it can only be a camera. My concern is, can the kids physically take a picture with the Ipad? I'm looking at childproof cases, but I'm not sure if their hands are big enough to hold the Ipad and take a picture at the same time.
    Thanks!

    Absolutely. Just be sure you have it in a very sturdy case before you have it in your classroom.

    There are far less expensive digital cameras that are probably more durable to us than IPads,but if you have access to the I Pads for free, use them. You will be setting them up with digital skills that can be used and accessed for future projects. I have seen some really heavy-duty frames on the I Pads that make them virtually indestructible. Shoot - PreK's at age 3 or so use their parent's cell phones with very little guidance, so an I Pad should be a piece of cake!!.

    You will get so many (adorable) selfies. I love looking at the pictures my students take with the iPads. A kid's eye view of the world, it's pretty neat.
