Singapore School Trials iPad as Textbook Replacement -- - 2 views

  • With the goal of changing teaching and learning in its classrooms, Singapore's Nanyang Girl's High School has replaced its textbooks with iPad tablet computers.
  • "We found that it was a very good personal learning device, extremely mobile, light weight and it is easy to use. I think if you talk to the girls you will realize that they practically don't need training. I think if anything, the joke is the teachers probably taking a little bit longer time in getting used to it. So it seemed to be a device that was just the thing that we were looking for and we were glad that it came out and so we grabbed the opportunity to use it."
  • According Singapore’s Ministry of Education, there’s only one primary school and three secondary schools in the country that are giving the iPads a try.
