The Teacher’s Apple

A decade ago, electronics and cell phones in the classroom were considered little more than a distraction. Today, new devices such as tablet computers and smartphones are changing this perception. Educators are finding innovative ways to supplement their lectures with the newest technology, and students are beginning to see their devices as essential components of their college experience.

Naturally, major device manufacturers are now battling for dominance in the field. Below, we explore how Apple is winning the battle for education technology and what gives them the edge over the sizable competition in the market.

  2. Andrianes,
    Thank you for this great post. Your research is thorough, and I appreciate you listed your sources. You offer such a bevy of ideas and ways to incorporate technology into the classroom. Here in Cambodia, I am JUST beginning to work with a young Cambodian teacher who sees the potential of using technology in his English classroom. He has JUST begun to bring an iPad into the class to reinforce basic skills for his beginning ESOL students. One problem is that the available apps are not culturally relevant for SE Asian countries. Hopefully, with education, this will change. I would love to connect with some people who can help me instruct my media students here in how to create apps for the iPad. May I use your graphics in a future blogpost?

    • Hi Diana, I am more than happy for you to use the graphic in a future blogpost.
