Increase the iPad’s educational value with keyboard add-ons
More and more tablets appear to be popping up these days, and as the iPad's popularity continues to soar, these devices are increasingly proving their educational value. For example, a recent Hotelier MiddleEast article detailed how Cesar Ritz Colleges, one of the leading hospitality schools in Switzerland, recently introduced iPads into its classrooms.
"The iPad has changed the way that students learn right across the globe with information now accessible at the touch of a finger," said Cesar Ritz Colleges managing director Ronan Fitzgerald, who reportedly led the iPad implementation initiative. "In the classroom setting at Cesar Ritz Colleges, students and teachers work together, learn together and generate new content to drive an education revolution. The iPad inspires creativity and hands-on learning with features that are not found in any other educational tool."
IPad keyboards allow students to expand use
A commonly reported deterrent to iPad adoption is the computing adjustment required due to the device's lack of keyboard. However, there are a number of iPad keyboard products that can help ease the transition to touch-capable devices and improve the ease of use by students. In a recent ZDNet article, as a response to frequently asked questions about the best keyboards for the iPad, contributor James Kendrick outlined his top picks:
- ZAGG Profolio+
- ClamCase Pro
- Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover
- Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio
- ZAGGkeys Flex
- And for iPad mini owners … the ZAGG Mini 9
These keyboards and many more can help users make the most of their iPads. However, when carting your iPad back and forth to class and other locations, your device is at a higher risk of being dropped and damaged. If your iPad suffers a fall as you scurry off to your next lecture hall, don't fret. Consult iResQ's iPad repair services to get things back up and running again in no time.
