iPads in Education

Read

Welcome to the ‘iPad in Education’ web site – concerned with using Apple’s iPad for teaching and learning. Of course at this stage, we don’t know the true extent of the impact of the iPad on teaching and learning as it is too early to say. However, as it becomes widely available in the UK and other countries outside of the USA, teachers and learners will start to explore its potential and begin to document how they use it, what works and what doesn’t. One of the great aspects of the whole iPhone and iPod Touch eco-system into which the iPad was launched, is the amount of free and cheap apps written for these devices. The iPad can take advantage of this existing situation and can run the vast majority of the current educational apps on the App Store. Fortunately many of the free and cheaper apps have been re-written for the iPad and its larger screen. Given the current financial situation for most schools, the resource of free and affordable software on the App Store is particularly valuable.
