Evidence

We have gathered much evidence over the course of the last few months which demonstrates how the iPad enhances learning. In order to make this accessible, the site lays out the evidence in a number of ways:

  1. Through the use of the Blog roll with links to external sites with information and evidence about how the iPad can be used to enhance learning.
  2. Through the sharing of blog posts by students about how they have been using them in the trial. On the trial, we have given students a variety of experiences. One experience type has been where students have had access to an iPad for one lesson per week with a trial teacher. Other students were loaned an iPad for a month where they could access the device 24/7, add their own apps, and use it in every lesson.
  3. Through the sharing of blog posts by teachers about how they have been using them in the trial. Again, some teachers have been able to use them on occasion with groups of students. Others have had access to them 24/7 to see how that can impact on their planning, productivity and learning outcomes for the students.
