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.
“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.”
