Singapore school introduces iPad for classroom learning
While it is a giant leap on the educational system, it could be a major fall back on teachers. Students of the Nanyang Girls’ High School in Singapore are reeling with thrills at having to take down notes on iPads that the school has ordered in as part of a pilot project. The school apparently paid around $103,430 for 150 iPads. The children can use it and even take notes, make worksheets, etc. According to the dean of the curriculum, Seah Hui Yong this new project means giving children more freedom to learn and depend lesser on their teachers and the traditional ways of teaching. They can even sit around and have a more interactive session as compared to the orderly desk-chair format.
