iPads in Education

April 5, 2013

Recently educators from Plymouth visited the Apple Headquarters in Chicago for a briefing to determine the effectiveness of the next device to be used.  Four trainers from different aspects of education explained the power of an iPad in education.  Today’s student needs to consume information before being creative about the production in learning.  The iPad allows the student to consume that information in many interactive and very engaging ways.  The educators who attended this briefing were given several tasks, to create a report on their group activity, using a variety of applications.  The result was a concentration on the content of the material entered into the product rather than the actual process of the product because creating on an iPad is so much easier than on a MacBook.  Further discussion will definitely be needed.

iPads are currently being used in all kindergarten and 1st grade classrooms throughout our corporation.  Other classrooms throughout the corporation are using carts and trays of iPads to enhance their instruction.  The video above was one shown to us at Apple HQ in Chicago and features our very own Amy Gerard’s nephew.
