JP-UK are specialists in providing Apple accessories, iPads and iPad Minis for Schools and while many schools are more than happy to embrace the benefits that Apple products can offer in the classroom, it can be difficult to decipher the best ways that iPads can be utilised in education.
Some of the common mistakes for using iPads in schools tend to come from the lack of planning. The use of iPads can offer some incredible benefits to student learning when there is a clear plan and focus to how they are to be integrated and utilised in the classroom.
A report by the Faculty of Education at Hull University looked at a pilot study in eight schools and six local authorities across Scotland to assess the deployment of iPads for both teaching and learning.
The report supports the benefits that iPads can have in schools, with some of the principle findings suggesting:
· Personal student ‘ownership’ of iPad devices is cited as the most important aspect of the most productive use of iPads.
· The introduction of iPads on a personal basis increases access to technology for pupils and helps to stimulate benefits including greater motivation, engagement, and parental involvement in education.
· The use of iPads provides the basis for significantly beneficial changes in the way that teachers approach their role as educators.
