iPad

iPads are used by educators to deliver interactive lessons and by administrators to measure the performance of students and teachers. The thousands of education-specific apps available for iPad can be used to download textbooks, play educational games, and watch videos.

Reader Testimony: 

“The iPad has allowed staff to individualize each student’s educational program and more efficiently monitor student progress. Apps used on the iPad allow students to set academic goals and self-monitor their educational progression. It also allows them to, in a sense, bring their teacher home with them.”

—Virginia Drouin, principal, Alfred Elementary School, Maine
