Will Ipad2 (iPadtoo) Be Used More in Education?

Resourceful uses of iPad2 in Education.

I think the iPad has several uses in schools, and has been loved as a great tool for homeschooling. According to WikiPedia, soon after the iPad was released, it was reported that 81% of the top-book apps were for children. The iPad has also been called a revolutionary tool to help children with autism learn how to communicate and socialize better and easier.  Many colleges and universities have also used the iPad. Youngstown State University in Youngstown, Ohio, began offering three-hour rentals for the iPad for its Fall 2010 semester, in addition to rentals for the Amazon Kindle, laptop computers, and Flip cameras.

Apps available for Education.

iPadWith the iPad, the classroom is always at your fingertips.  Right now at the App Store, there are thousands of apps available to download.  Students can track their assignments, take notes, and study for finals.  The beauty of this is that teachers can give lessons, monitor progress, and stay organized, and that’s just the beginning.

The three iWork apps help students and teachers put together professional-looking documents, presentations, and spreadsheets no matter where they are.  Pages is a powerful word processor with simple-to-use layout tools and a large keyboard.  With Keynote, it’s easy to create presentations with animations and effects.  And Numbers lets students and teachers build compelling, attractive spreadsheets in minutes, including tables and charts.  When you finish what you’ve been working on, just tap the AirPrint icon to print it out directly from your iPad.
