iPads for all: The UK school which has replaced pens and paper with Apple's tablet | Digital Trends

iPads for all: The UK school which has replaced pens and paper with Apple's tablet | Digital Trends:

 "Three years ago, the Essa Academy in England did away with textbooks, giving each student an iPod touch to use instead. The move proved such a success that the school recently decided to replace the iPod touches with iPads.

The BBC has an interesting video report about a high school in Bolton, England that has transformed the way it teaches its students by giving all 840 of them an iPad.

The school’s move towards technology began three years ago when iPod touch devices were handed out. The switch to tablets was made late last year, with teachers also being issued with the device.

The school utilizes iTunes U – Apple’s free educational resource – with teachers using the iPad to inform students of upcoming lessons several days in advance."
