The Best 10 Tablets for Educators.

 The world is going mobile and so are teaching and learning. We no longer talk about the use of only " traditional technology " ( computers and laptops ) in education for this is taken for granted but there emerged a growing need for the use of smart mobile technology. The majority of students now use a mobile device of some sort. Stats show that 95 of k-12 students in the United States own a phone.In fact these numbers are not surprising for we have a direct contact with students and we know exactly how much they use their phones and how excited they get to check out their phones the first thing when they go on break.

Educational Technology experts and curriculum designers are shifting the focus towards levelling this mobile technology into our classrooms. The move is still decent but promising. I said promising because we started to see signs from the prominent world companies like Samsung and Apple trying to gear parts of their technology towards education. Just recently,  Apple has announced the release of iBooks 2 and iBooks Author that are considered to be the start of a digital textbook revolution.

  1. The best Tablet we've come across is the LearnPad, what make it special is the management portal where you can control all your devices in your class. They also insert all your elearning content into the management portal with loads of extra free content and its so easy to create and distribute lessons to our students.

  2. Agreed on the LearnPad comment posted. A lot of articles regarding tablets for education seem to focus on the device itself and the cost to acquire it. While that's important, the focus needs to shift to the software and that is where LearnPad wins. With content that is targeted towards multiple levels of education along with management software that empowers teachers, LearnPad beats them all. My only wish is that LearnPad made software for the iPad!
