The easy way to effectively implement iPads in the classroom

The iPad is a natural fit for education in the 21st century, and this hands-on guide shows you just how to implement it in your educational institution. iPad in Education For Dummies serves as a roadmap for the device's successful use as an education tool—from both a personal and institutional perspective. It examines why the iPad is a perfect fit for contemporary educational needs, how to purchase and deploy them within an organization, and outlines best practices, tools, and apps for their educational use across all curricula and grade levels.

A cross between a powerful computer, iPod, game console, and e-reader, the iPad is an ultraportable—and ultra cool—touch device from Apple. In 2013, the iPad was deployed in Chicago Public Schools, LA Unified School district, Oxnard School District in California, and Raleigh County Public Schools in West Virginia, to name a few. In this new edition of iPad in Education For Dummies, you'll find the latest coverage of interactive media and augmented reality apps, creating and publishing class books and textbooks, moving from lectures to interactive classroom presentations, setting up digital student profiles, and much more.

  • Includes up-to-date coverage of Apple's iPad hardware and iOS software
  • Covers managing classroom workflow challenges, including how to distribute, share, collaborate, and collect digital documents
  • Written by one of the foremost authorities on iPad deployments in schools
  • Provides clear information on what decisions you need to make to deploy and use the iPad effectively in the classroom

If you're a school administrator, teacher, or educational IT specialist who is considering deploying the iPad in the classroom, this handy guide has everything to set you up for success.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA, April 2015 (Vol. 38, No. 1) - Erin Wyatt
Written in a conversational tone, this guide seeks to give a broad overview of iPads and their utility in an educational environment for teachers, students, or both. Starting with an introduction to the iPad and its basic use, the book continues to explore finding and using apps, organizing content on the device, use in building academic skills, content creation with media, creating an iPad classroom, and tips for implementation. Lesson plans from teachers are incorporated within the book and in an appendix, but these resources are largely focused on topics in science and math. For previous iPad users, there will be much that is already familiar. Even for savvy users of iPads, however, there will be some new tricks and tidbits that may prove valuable. There are some minor gaffes in editing, such as when a random paragraph on blogging appears in the middle of a section on note taking. The author makes an effort to point out capabilities of different generations of the device to make the text helpful for users of the various iterations of the iPad. Because there is so much ground covered, there are instances when in-depth information is provided and other times when a tool might just be given a cursory mention. A reader will definitely want an iPad handy to try the directions as they are presented in the text as screenshots are not always provided. Reviewer: Erin Wyatt; Ages 11 to Adult.
