iPads for Teaching and Learning

How Devices Are Shaping Education

iPads in the Classroom

Cost Efficient

Apple Inc. offers a wide variety of discounts for students, educators, and institutions. By purchasing a device, the cost of books and educational resources are greatly reduced. This is because ebooks are typically cheaper than printed copies. Also, apps can be shared among devices with the same apple account.

Why is America on the iPad Bandwagon?

Eighty-one percent of U.S. teachers think tablets help enhance classroom learning. Eighty-six percent of students believe tablets help them to study more efficiently. That's a huge majority! Not only are these percentages well over half percent, but teachers and students are actually agreeing over something!

Digital Textbooks

Research suggests that the more students use digital textbooks and believe that they are helpful to increase learning outcomes, the more easily they are able to accept digital textbooks.
