iPad has already become the educational transformation technology that gives teachers and students the creative freedom to explore teaching and learning in new and exciting ways. A number of useful apps on and for the iPad allow students to study and research at any time without having access a computer. The features like recording, creating podcasts, practice language skills; photography, and word processor, dictate notes makes students much more articulate than earlier.
Successful adaption of iPad one-to-one (1:1) program in school can make education system more efficient, constructive and prolific. Slenderness, enduring features, lightweight and highly portable, makes it easy to carry everyday to the school, with a benefit of long battery, unlocked screen and instant start in comparison to laptop. As the iPad is more instinctive than a laptop, it can be considered to be more affordable with less dependency on the mentors with built-in durable technology functions.
The directions for 1:1 iPad Program learning should be according to the mental level of the participants. They should be given an environment focusing on academic habits, community building, organising attention, and practically thinking. The school administrators, IT directors, teachers and students should be instructed about the device and rules. Intermediate concepts of technically handling the device like exporting files, embedding photos, editing video, should be given before projects and assignments based on iPad. The families of the students should also be made familiar to the devices, the school’s basic policies, care of devices, warranty/insurance information, etc.
Confidence and personalising machines is fundamental key to nurture a rewarding school’s 1:1 iPad Program. It could be difficult for the kids to use it on class-based level without any additional teacher support, as a team tutors and kids should work demonstrating respect and responsibility to get substantiate results at every step of the way. It will reduce the damage of the devices, ensuring the proper knowledge to use iPad in best possible way from administrators and students to parents and teachers, to identify and verbalize the success of a 1:1 iPad Program.
