April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 169

A growing number of students across the United States are seen carrying an iPad in their backpacks to solve complex math problems, quickly create innovative designs during an art class, and perform such similar activities in class. iPad has, indeed, become the latest learning companion for students, allowing them to learn while at home, connect with the teachers in real-time, and record lectures in class.

Let's now discuss how this modern gadget helps in educating students in the classroom.

Share the iPad Screen with Others

Teachers can easily share their iPad screens with the students on a bigger screen through a projector. In this way, students can see what you want them to see.

Connect with Other Students and Teacher

Students can use the gadget to get connected with the teacher's computer via a plug-in. In this way, content on the teacher's computer gets instantly projected on the learner's iPad. Students owning an iPad can also connect with friends having an iPhone, Mac or an iPod.

Participate in Class from Remote Locations

Students who are unable to attend classes physically due to health issues or for any other personal reason can easily connect with the classroom virtually via their iPad. In this way, they can quickly take notes, converse with the teacher (provided he/she also has an iPad), and is informed on the progress that the class is making in real-time.

Students can Write Content Using Pages

The gadget lets students create content (articles, blog posts, newsletters, etc) using the in-built Pages application. It also helps students upload these pages almost instantly.

Create Spreadsheets Using Numbers

Learners can use the gadget to learn numbers and solve simple to complex multiplication, division, algebraic equations, and more, using the Spreadsheets application. They need to download the "Numbers" application to start reaping its benefits.

Movie Making Opportunities

The iMovie application enables film students to shoot, create, and edit movies from anywhere and at anytime of the day or night. The application also facilitates learners to share movies with anyone.

Easy to Carry in Class

This high-profile gadget is easy to carry around since it is thin in size and lighter in weight.

Reference, Productivity, and Collaboration

iPads can help students become more productive in the classroom, through the usage of various study aids, applications for note taking, tools for collaborating and brainstorming, and much more.

High Accessibility

You can make learning more accessible by introducing the iPad in the classroom. The device helps students learn by using audio-visual elements, multimedia, and via various other modes of innovative learning styles.

Access Brand New Books

Many educational institutions are forced to use the same book year after year, long after the content has become outdated. With iPads, learners can easily access brand new books with up-to-date content for almost half the price of a hardcopy book. They can even download the important textbooks from the "Textbook" section of the "iBookstore" straight to their iPad.
