Getting tablets into the classroom is only the start of the battle. Once you get the funding and deployment all squared away, you still need to actually use them properly. That’s what Edudemic authors write about every single day, but it’s still a tough (and new) problem for many.
So what’s it like to actually deploy tablets in your classroom? The folks over at Online Universities developed a quick but informative infographic (aren’t they all) that’s great for any teacher looking to learn more about tablets and teaching.
- Most teachers use tablets to ‘bring textbooks to life’ and because it’s ‘a familiar experience’ since students have been using smartphones for quite awhile.
- Teachers and students love them as an alternative to books, the access to apps, and for the other usual reasons.
- About half of all tablet owners say they’ll be buying another tablet in the next 6 months.
- Roughly 3 out of every 4 students surveyed say the tablet helps them learn.
- 90% of college and high school students say the tablets are important for both learning and personal advancement.
