Ipads for Teaching and Learning

Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century

Why iPads?

Ipads are becoming a breakthrough in enhancing education! Ipads provide students with tools to help assist and benfit their learning. Ipads are easy devices to manage, and they also allow for portability and organization. "A study from KIPP Academy in Houston, TX showed the percentage of students who rated either proficient or advanced (the 'passing' rate) was 49% percent higher in the 'flipped classrooms' using the iPads than in the traditional classrooms with no iPads" (Wainwright). Ipads also allow students to share their work with others! Parents can see first-hand what their children are learning and creating while they are at school. Ipads are also very easy and convenient tools that all teachers need to take advantage of. In the world we live in today, technology is all our children know. Integrating iPads into the classroom helps prepare students to be successful in the 21st century!
