The IPad – a gamechanger for education?

February 16, 2010

A look at the strengths of the IPad suggest new usages in the area of education ( depends as always on creative thinking).

a few of the advantages include:

  • More like a book or a phone than a computer. So, it’s portable – can be used on the move and moved with ease from one location to another (one class to another!).
  • It facilitates greater involvement and interactivity with users.
  • Online access: ability to interact with websites/upload results to central servers.
  • Relatively cheap in price while at the same delivering a high quality product.

Given its mobility and size, the IPad may also fit the needs of learners with disabilities.
