Along with being optimized for the larger tablet, version 1.2.0 also works with the Slide Over feature in iOS 9.
Peter Mellow's insight:

Using this now with a standard iPad. Works great! Previous apps that I have used to turn my ipad into a 4th monitor ran over bluetooth or Wifi and lagged a bit. The refresh rate with this app is great. Highly reccommended.

Apple iOS 9.3 will be all about education :: Lance Ulanoff | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

"iOS 9.3 may be Apple's most targeted release yet. While there are sure to be bug fixes, performance enhancements and other random feature updates, it appears the biggest changes will be all geared toward education.

 

"Apple offered a sneak peek at the upcoming version of iOS in a new web page. It states, "With the iOS 9.3 beta, you’ll find a preview of new features that will make it even easier for schools to put devices where they’ll have the greatest impact — in the hands of students."

For students, the iPad is the ultimate computer - @Mashable

For students, the iPad is the ultimate computer - @Mashable | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
BROOKLYN, New York – I’m sitting on the floor at The Academy of Talented Scholars (PS 682) in Bensonhurst, watching kindergarteners create robots on an iPad.

It’s one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen, and I don’t even like children.

The exercise is part of the curriculum led by co-teachers Stacy Butsikares and Allison Bookbinder, focused on helping the 5- and 6-year-old students come up with ways to solve problems.

The first step is to identify a problem happening in the school. The kindergarteners come up with ideas like kids horsing around in the lunch line, or not throwing trash away properly, or making too much noise at recess. Students are instructed to create a robot that could solve the problem, and draw the robot on a piece of paper.

Once the robot is sketched out, the real fun begins. Using the app The Robot Factory, these pint-sized problem-solvers bring their robot ideas to life.

What does research really say about iPads in the classroom?

What does research really say about iPads in the classroom? | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
In the end, the research and our data merged.  The greatest truth was that the less a teacher uses technology, the less comfortable they will be with technology in their classroom—this is neither age dependent nor years of teaching dependent. We know many “old” teachers (present company included) who love the latest technologies and embrace them joyfully in our classrooms. What has been the most interesting outcome for us in our research is the number of classrooms teachers who with a little hands-on support created technology rich lessons with a minimum of training or professional development. The bottom line was that when we mixed training with support we created a successful and innovative learning experience for teachers and their students.

Lynn U Deploys iPad Pro -- Campus Technology | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL, is upgrading its iPad initiative by providing all undergraduate day students and faculty with an iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard.

The university launched its iPad program in 2013. Following a pilot project, it provided 750 students, primarily freshmen, with iPad minis in August 2013. Based on the success of the first year, the university then expanded the initiative by providing 1,800 iPad minis to all day undergraduate students, new MBA students and doctoral students in August 2014. "Our introduction of iPad-powered learning in 2013 has supported rises in retention and prospective student inquiries, as well as improved student outcomes," said Kevin Ross, president of Lynn U, in a press release.

The latest versions of iOS for iPad include a great multitasking feature called Split View, which, much as it sounds, allows users to split the screen on the iPad between two active apps side-by-side. iPad and iPad Pro users can adjust the size of each app panel or have them take up an equal amount of space, enabling users to essentially use two apps at the same time.
