8 Studies about iPads in Classrooms
http://bit.ly/1GdNCBs
8 Studies show iPads in the classroom improve education.
Since their release in April of 2010, Apple’s iPads have taken the US by storm. iPads have swept through almost every industry, especially education.
Apple is pushing for iPad use in education, and several schools across the US have taken up the charge. The proliferation of iPads in the classroom will only keep accelerating. With these powerful mobile devices come a lot of possible benefits for educators and students alike. We all know iPads are exciting and there is a plethora of engaging apps for them out there, but do they actually improve education?
There have been many interesting studies done about iPads in the classroom and the effects on both students and teachers. I’ve pulled together a list of various study results regarding iPads in the classroom below. Check out just how much of an influence studies show iPads in the classroom are having on education.

Why Some Schools Are Selling All Their iPads

Why Some Schools Are Selling All Their iPads
For an entire school year Hillsborough, New Jersey, educators undertook an experiment, asking: Is the iPad really the best device for interactive learning?
It’s a question that has been on many minds since 2010, when Apple released the iPad and schools began experimenting with it. The devices came along at a time when many school reformers were advocating to replace textbooks with online curricula and add creative apps to lessons. Some teachers welcomed the shift, which allowed their students to replace old poster-board presentations with narrated screencasts and review teacher-produced video lessons at any time.

Ten Reflections on the First Year of an iPad Pilot
Passing out iPads to students on the first day of school was like celebrating Christmas (or in this case Hanukkah) with thirty antsy kids sitting around the ceremonial ipad cart attempting to hide their excitement.
After an exciting year chalked full of pedagogical lessons and changes in our learning landscape here are my takeaways:

iPad Case Study : Zurich International School

iPad Case Study : Zurich International School
ZIS, as the school is called, has distributed 600 iPads—one to every student in first through eighth grades, plus a set for teachers in preschool and kindergarten to use with children in small groups.
The school has an unconventional take on the iPad’s purpose. The devices are not really valued as portable screens or mobile gaming devices. Teachers I talked to seemed uninterested, almost dismissive, of animations and gamelike apps.
Instead, the tablets were intended to be used as video cameras, audio recorders, and multimedia notebooks of individual students’ creations.

The Smart Way to Use iPads in the Classroom
It’s not about the games or educational apps.
Do we really want to give $500 devices to kids who can’t even tie their shoes? What are these schools doing with these devices, anyway?
Last month, I had a rare opportunity to ask those questions at a school in Zurich, Switzerland.

After conducting an iPad pilot project at Westlake High School, its eighth grades and various elementary grade levels, the Eanes school district will spread its 1:1 tablet plan to all grades at all campuses.
At a Dec. 19 meeting, the Eanes school board authorized the purchase of 2,730 iPad 2s for $1.17 million to put one tablet in the hands of every student.
The district has named the initiative Learning and Engaging Through Access and Personalization, or LEAP.

iPads in Primary: Does 1-to-1 Make a Difference?

iPads in Primary: Does 1-to-1 Make a Difference?
Recently, I was given the opportunity to go one-to-one in my first grade classroom with iPads. To say that my students and I were excited to do this would be a bit of an understatement. It has long been a dream of mine to go one-to-one and for the students it is, as they say, like kids in a candy shop.
Truthfully, management of these devices has proven to be more of a hassle than I had anticipated, but it is clear to me that these devices ARE making a difference. When I see the students’ engagement, their learning, their sharing and their pursuit of their passions, I can’t help but be convinced that these devices have the potential to transform my classroom.

Welcome to the Eanes ISD WIFI (Westlake Initiative for Innovation) Pilot site, where we will chronicle the stages of a campus-wide iPad rollout at Westlake High School.
The site will host descriptions of innovative iPad uses in classrooms, video tutorials and analysis by teachers, lists of apps we have found useful, and processes the district has used to distribute iPads in a large scale deployment.
The hope is to provide guidance and support to other schools venturing down this road in the future.

When making the move towards using mobile devices in the classroom, there are a number of practical considerations to bear in mind. This article will draw on the experience we have had this year, in implementing an iPad 1 to 1 scheme with our 6th form. We’ve made many mistakes, and I hope have learnt from them.
In the spirit of collaboration, I will share some of them below, in the hope that other schools learn from both what has worked, and what hasn’t.

We all know that technology is impacting every aspect of our lives, and it’s not a surprise for anyone that we use iPad in education, business, hospitals, ect.
Talking about using the iDevice in schools we can see that there are pros and cons about it. However, I think it’s not so bad.
Today there are tons of different forums in the internet, where people discuss the ways of using iPad in schools and most people agree that it is very convenient as well as economical.

What might tablets enable for education in the future? Companies like WizIQ see the iPad (in the near term) as a chance to rev up the educational experience for students with electronic assessment tools, real-time collaboration, and 24/7 access to resources.
Stanford’s school of medicine is using the iPad’s dynamic screen to enhance tables and images in medical texts.
Zeeland Public Schools in Michigan is using the iPad to communicate with students in grades 3 through 12, and to assign classwork and tests.
St. Catherine’s high school in Wisconsin is using the iPad for tests, research, presentations, and reports for 6th graders, and plans to extend this policy up through their 12th grade students.

Kolbe Catholic College 1:1 Implementation [iPads]

Kolbe Catholic College 1:1 Implementation [iPads]
Kolbe Catholic College has undergone exceptional change in the area of Information Communication Technology over the last few years. The College is now looking to the future for our senior school students. In 2010 and 2011 the College initiated conversations with many schools around Western Australia that had had 1:1 Laptop Programs extending through years 10 – 12.
After reviewing these schools’ programs and discussions with our teaching staff it was decided that in Years 10 – 12 a different device would better suit student needs. The College ICT philosophy evolves around two fundamental tenants.
Firstly, in Years 7 – 9 students use the MacBook laptop as a tool for creating and exploring the possibilities of Information Communication Technology. This allows students to gain the necessary skills to create presentations; manipulate data into meaningful products and to produce quality assessments that show innovation and creativity. Secondly, in Years 10 – 12, while creation still remains highly important, our students’ focus is content retention and organising their subject requirements to achieve the best possible results ...

"Yesterday I felt like I was the apps police as I checked all the 25 iPads for the apps we had given on a list for the students to download. Most students had downloaded the required apps and used all their $100 gift cards. Only a handful still had the required apps not yet downloaded. It was also interesting to see what other apps they had downloaded. Facebook was on some iPads and will be taken off due to the students being under 13 and of course Facebook is blocked at school."
