iPad and Education

ANITHA on April 21, 2010

Today, the iPod Touch has been accepted as the device of choice for mobile 1:1 learning in K-12 education. This device can do most of what a child can do with a computer and anytime, anywhere is its biggest advantage.

Will the newly launched iPad attract educators to use it for 1:1 learning, despite the higher price point? With the larger screen, it is easier to create presentations,spreadsheets or documents. For students who have a vision/hearing impairment or have a physical/learning ability, some iPad features like screen reader and support for playback of closed-captioned content helps. iPad version of several books can be purchased through iBooks.

From our interactions with schools and from online forum discussions, educators seem to like the iPad for the following reasons:

* - Ease of use and intuitive UI

* - Ability to create content and print

* - It’s faster than any interaction with iPhone or iPod Touch.

* - Good battery life

* - Keynote’s ability to place a simulated red laser pointer where you touch

* - Availability of CIPA-compliant filter like Mobicip

* - More than 30,000 eBooks at launch. Every publisher is adding more. and many more!

In summary, in response to the demand from users for a device that can create content in addition to consuming it, we believe that Apple has a winner in the iPad.
