iPads used in schools

A lot of institutions, universities, colleges, and schools are now abandoning the traditional books made of paper and are starting to use the electronic versions of them. And to use the electronic versions, they need a hardware system. And most of the institutions, universities, colleges, and schools are using the most popular iPad for the same.

Not even just the educational institutions, but government agencies, military, air force, and marine forces in different countries are using iPads to replace the paper. This may be a move to make the planet more greener, but I believe its done because it reduces the large amount of paper that is to be carried around and makes finding data in the books more easier, among many other advanced features.

A recent study however is proving that students who are using iPads for studying are doing good in their tests than students who are using the traditional paper made books. But how is iPad using the scores to improve? Well, that is still a mystery, which I believe will be solved later if not sooner.

Abilene Christian University is where the results are coming from. And the report says the following:

“In one study, students who annotated text on their iPads scored 25% higher on questions regarding information transfer than their paper-based peers. In a separate project covering iPad usage patterns, two researchers studying ACU’s first all-digital class discovered that the iPad promotes “learning moments” and helps students make more efficient use of their time. Grad students working in an online program reported a 95% satisfaction rate for online iPad-based coursework. As far as the ACU studies are concerned, the iPad in education is a success story.”

There are a lot of developers for the iOS platform who are working hard to develop apps centered around student and teachers alike. This is helping out students and teachers to better adjust with the latest technologies in the world to make learning and teaching more fun, interesting, and useful. I hope this continues.
