iPad a Solid Education Tool

MOBICIPNEWS on January 26, 2012

Thank you Christina Bonnington of WIRED via CNN, for posting a great article: "iPad a solid education tool, study reports". We pulled some highlights from the article however we encourage you to read the article here: http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/23/tech/innovation/ipad-solid-education-tool/index.html.

And the Mobicip team completely agrees - the iPad is a solid education tool and Mobicip's Safe Browser offers a safe, secure and educational Internet for your child's iPad. Parents and educators can get peace of mind knowing their kids can use the mobile web without being exposed to inappropriate content.

-- "More and more schools are jumping on the digital bandwagon and adopting iPads for daily use in the classroom."

-- "In a partnership with Apple, textbook publishers Houghton Mifflin Harcourt performed a pilot study using an iPad text for Algebra 1 courses, and found that 20% more students (78% compared to 59%) scored 'Proficient' or 'Advanced' in subject comprehension when using tablets rather than paper textbook counterparts."

-- "The iPad seems to help students better connect with the content at hand" 

-- "Students' interaction with the device was more personal. You could tell students were more engaged," said Coleman Kells, principal of Amelia Earhart Middle School."

-- "Another study centered on an iPad game, Motion Math, has shown that the iPad can help with fundamental math skills. Fifth graders who regularly played the game for 20 minutes per day over a five-day period increased their test scores by 15% on average."

-- "…the iPad is starting to do an impressive job of improving the education space. And now that publishers and instructors have these iBooks tools at their disposal, students can continue to reap the benefits of increased understanding and greater participation."
