You can’t throw a textbook without hitting an iPad. They seem to be creeping into every part of the world of education. They’re shiny, fun to use, and can help open a new world of learning for many students.
That’s great and all. But what’s the real deal with iPads in the classroom? How are teachers using them right now? What are some key stats a typical teacher should know about the ‘magic’ device in education?
A new visual look at ipads in education sheds some light on the current state of the device’s role and positioning in schools. According to SecurEdge, about 86% of students feel the iPad helps them study. A little bit smaller number (80%) is how many students say they want tablets in the classroom. Tablets, that is, like the iPad. There is not a lot of extra info to support the numbers and snippets here so take it with a grain of salt.
Basically, this is a good refresher on the current iPad trend and it’ll let you know just a little bit more about iPads than your colleagues in the teacher’s lounge. What’s better than that!?
