The iPad brings a new way lesson delivery and engagement with pupils. Its a cost effective tool which has a zero learning curve and allows a teacher to out of the box plan and deliver lessons with amazing resources across all subject areas. Use it around the classroom as a way to present in place of a whiteboard, use it with individual pupils or for group work for exciting and interactive learning. Or use it to its true potential – as a 1:1 learning device with every pupil in the room.
The iPad is a superb learning tool especially in relation to critical thinking, problem solving, decision-making, research and information fluency. But its more than that. It stimulates creativity; it encourages learning and it enables great challenge centered lessons.
Its instant on facility means no IT headaches and no waiting time for computers to start. It just, well, works.
Its the perfect teaching and learning tool – designed to be easily used, projected on screen and capable of everything a laptop would do from lesson planning to involving activities, content consumption and creativity.
