The iPad mini in the classroom

Posted on 31 January, 2013 at 21:25

The latest Apple addition – the ipad mini is creating a storm in education. This mini version of the ipad provides teachers with the opportunity to do everything that their existing DER/teacher laptop enables them to do, but in a light and more compact tool. The ipad mini is ideal for teachers who already carry a collection of resources back and forth from their faculty (and for younger students who use them for a long period of time). The ipad mini allows teachers to connect it to the projector and use it as their laptop. Additionally, it has faster internet connection that its ipad family members and has a better camera and movie making technology. The ipad mini retails from $300 and can be purchased through any Apple-approved NSW DEC institution. Compatible with the DER wireless in most schools, the ipad mini permits better use for students in group activity situations, and for for schools that have 1:1 laptops but want to also add a more mobile and flexible learning device.
