Teachers Guide: Use of iPad in education Educational Technology & Mobile Learning

Teachers Guide: Use of iPad in education Educational Technology & Mobile Learning | Wheatley Favorites | Scoop.it

Here is a list of some of the reasons why we should consider using iPads in education:

iPads are capable of providing enhanced ebooks featuring images, video and audio.
Students are using a wide range of different smartphones and are already acquainted with touch screen technology
According to Neilson Survey," 35 % of tablet owners said they used their desktop computers less often or not at all now, and 32% of laptop users said the same. Most tellingly, more than 75% of tablet owners said they used their tablet for tasks they once used their desktop or laptop for."
iPads ( and almost all tablets ) fits in with students lifestyles. Their light weight, portability, ease of use make them much easier to take and use in the classroom than a laptop or a netbook.
iPad's responsive and smooth scrolling touchscreen made it ideal for reading content in the classroom.
No more heavy textbooks. Gone are the days when you would carry a hefty backpack full of books, the light weight iPad is a great alternative with its integrated etextbooks all in one place.
iPad provides a limitless amount of information through wireless technology. Students can have a free access to tons of reference apps for facts, questions, statistics, articles, dictionaries, data and many more.Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Teachers Guide on The Use of iPad in education http://t.co/ilvCFmeC...
