This case has a snap-in, hard plastic back to protect the corners and the back of the iPad. An adjustable hand strap on the back of the case prevents strain on a teacher’s hand when holding an iPad for long periods of time. A swivel base allows users to turn the iPad 360 degrees and view the device at the most comfortable angle.
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.
