There’s a whole different world out there for kids going to school, compared to what we went through when we were young. Now they have iPads, Facebook, YouTube and other such means of infotainment… Now the Apple tablet is ever more present in the education process and three elementary schools in South Carolina mentioned that the slate is able to help kids with the learning process.
Apparently, the iPad is able to make boring things interesting for little children. Also, it engages them in activities, focuses them and provides all the multimedia content to go with a text or information. Even math will look interesting now, according to the same South Carolina teachers. While most of us grew up thinking that projector in school was the coolest thing ever, now the iPad takes over and gives a total different meaning to the learning process.
Aside from teaching Math, the iPad teaches history, for example with an app like Storykit. The most important aspect is that everything looks like genuine fun, while it’s actually about learning, so kids are motivated to come to school and get more knowledge in.
