Report: The iPad as a Tool for Education

Naace have recently published their report – The iPad as a Tool for Education. Based on research taken from the implementation of iPads at Longfield Academy in Kent, the report is one of the most extensive studies so far into the use of tablets for learning. From the Naace website: “As one teacher put it, “The iPads have revolutionised teaching”, with appropriate use of iPads helping to enhance learning across the curriculum and encouraging collaborative learning. As more schools across the country consider adopting the use of tablets in classrooms, the messages from this research will be incredibly helpful for those who are deciding on their next steps.”
