What did Danish gurus in education say on iPad?
The Danish school system has been influenced by Grundtvigs thoughts on "learning for life, not for exams" - and Kolds thoughts "first you enliven, then you teach".

Living 100 years ago they did not say anything about iPad - but then... Listen to Grundtvig’s words:
Dead are all letters though written by angel fingers and starry pen and dead is all knowledge if not corresponding to a similar life within the reader

Looking on an interactiv book for Ipad it is so overwhelming that you might think that the letters are written by angel fingers and starry pen. Yet according to Grundtvig the letters are dead. You need more than fancy technology to make knowledge fuse with the inner life of the reader.

In a speech addressed to Grundtvig Christen Kold emphasized “…first you enliven, then you teach.”
An I-book has no effect unless it provides life and joy.
How do you enliven in order to teach?

Learning takes places in the interaction between identity, insight and collaboration.

Teach Religion with iPad - a Danish approach
In Denmark, we teach the children about religion. We teach - but do not preach.
It’s very important to secure a minimum level of understanding of the relations between myth, meaning and facts - and the kids love the old tales.
You achieve amazing results when you combine iPad and the 4 keys to learning: The Teacher or master, Your fellow students, Your ideas and your experience.
