The iPad is a wonderful device for 1:1 computing as it is an ‘instant on’ device that is reliable and simple to use. The iPad is compact in size and lightweight, making it ultra-portable. Its battery life of 8 - 10 hours will get through the whole school day without requiring charging. Students are able to use an iPad as a still or video camera, which allows them to document and reflect on their own learning as well as being able to create multimedia projects that foster a wide range of planning and thinking skills. It supports personalised learning without the additional complications of a laptop.
