This has the potential to connect learning that occurs in classrooms and museums. This article focuses on the use of iPads by a year 6 class (12 years old) in Sydney Australia, which were used both in the classroom and on a museum excursion. The study uses a qualitative methodology. Results of the study show the iPads were able to support and link learning in both locations although there were logistical considerations which limited their potential.
