Transforming Education: iPads in the Classroom

Technology is always changing, with constant introductions of new platforms and opportunities for learning. The recent trend of mobile tablets access in the classroom for students has shed light on new ways to educate. While some might see these tools as distractions that are more focused on the “fun” aspect of gaming and senseless internet browsing, some view mobile electronics, such as iPads and other tablets as potential tools to reach kids in new ways and to help them develop the ability to process and retain new concepts and material.

How can iPads transform the way kids learn in the classroom?

There seems to be an endless amount of apps available in the education category. From interactive learning games, which makes math drills exhilarating, to apps that mimic real world learning tools, like digital flashcards. Today, students who are equipped with iPads can save their calendars, homework planners, school reminders, notes, and even their full array of textbooks into a fully integrated system that makes it that easier for them to stay organized and on track of schoolwork.

  • Easy Access to Textbooks through eReader: One of the benefits of iPads and tablets is the ability for students to access a range of textbooks and reading materials on a single lightweight and mobile device. The easy accessibility encourages kids and adults to see reading as an activity that can be completed at anytime and anyplace.
  • Allows Educators to Create Unique Learning Materials: Digital technology allows teachers to create notes and presentations that are unique to their vision and syllabus. Additionally, with the range of mobile apps currently available, learning can be tailored to the students’ needs.
  • Provides Aesthetically-Pleasing and Physically Engaging Activities: The touch function of mobile tablets, like iPads, help kids stay focused by making learning interactive. As they are prompted to physically touch, swipe, and select objects on the screen, iPads can involve kids in the learning process as they take control of the device.
  • Keep Students and Teachers Connected: From class notes to presentations, digitalized information can be easily shared. For example, students who might have missed a lesson due to sickness can access the notes simply from their tablet devices or desktop computers. In addition, iPads make teamwork and synced projects a lot easier to handle and organized, which allows the student to stay connected or work with their fellow classmates.
