6 Reasons Why It is Imperative for
Schools to Have iPads

Post-pandemic, schools have started to adopt Advanced Digital Technology, supporting the in-class environment. Schools have shifted to tech-savvy ways of effective teaching, resulting in a digital ecosystem.

Apple & Schools

Apple being the powerhouse of leading technology, has a major contribution to the education sector through its wide range of products and services. The increased use of Apple products in schools has benefited all levels of school students from K-12 worldwide. At each class level, it is making a huge difference in the classrooms with an Enhanced Learning Experience.

Apple iPad & Schools

In India, many schools have implemented iPad programs, offering a more meaningful learning experience to students and a better teaching experience for teachers as well. Apple provides schools with a plethora of Teaching, Learning, and Technical Resources.

Let us delve deeper into 6 reasons as to why integrating Apple with Schools is crucial

1) Quality & Compactness

Being thin, light, and durable with a user-friendly touch interface makes iPads simple, giving a flawless experience to students and teachers iPads are relatively much easier to use as they are designed to function as per the student’s mentality. It provides multi-touch facilities, like swiping, pinching, and tapping making it very comfortable for students to use and work upon.

It also has the following amazing built-in features :

Speak Screen & Speak Selection

This feature enables the iPad to read back to the students whatever text or content they want to hear and even highlight it. They can read along as the sentences are spoken.

Typing Feedback & Predictive Text

iPad can speak back the words a student has typed which helps them confirm that they have written and spelled them correctly, it also gives suggestions for spelling by providing a list of words they hear.

Being a powerful device itself with Augmented Reality (AR) enabled, it takes the overall experience of students towards gamified education, thanks to a bundle of educational apps, games, and resources available for use. 

This package of compactness is unmatched when compared to other devices.

2) Deliver Tailored Experiences

iPads are essential in providing tailor-made solutions for each class level and different learning styles. Students have different learning styles – For eg. Visual learners can watch more videos and presentations whereas those who require a hands-on approach can download study materials.

Teachers can design student-centred materials and can offer a more creative approach to learning with immediate feedback. This makes the entire learning process fun, understanding, and graspable.

Considering two classroom scenarios:


A teacher can use Explain Everything(app) to provide students with a visual science concept along with an audio and text description to which students can jot down their responses and observations in Notes(app).


Teachers can break down a long process into short videos for students who have difficulty processing long documents. Post-it Notes(app) can be used to brainstorm ideas for the steps and using Post-it Plus (app) it can be arranged in a sequence that can be exported to Numbers (app) spreadsheet. Here instructions can be modified, images, text, and audio can be added, and finally, Clips can be used to create videos that combine step-by-step directions with live text, prompts, audio and videos.

Each classroom can thus function more towards student-centric learning. Teachers can share live text, drawings, and videos in real-time and make learning more interactive.

3) Enhanced Creativity

Students constantly find ways where they can express themselves and show their creativity in ways that best make sense to them. Other than schoolwork, students can utilise various apps available to enhance their creativity. Students will be able to accomplish anything from photography, filming, and editing to creating digital graphics, presentation and music.

Apple has a wonderful program- Everyone Can Create which has apps, tools, and resources which provide schools with everything they need to enhance the creative ecosystem in their classrooms. Students learn to share their ideas using videos, photography, music, and sketching through different projects from the Everyone Can Create guidebook.

Pages, Numbers, and Keynote

Students and teachers can use these tools to generate remarkable reports and books, as well as informative spreadsheets and spectacular presentations.

GarageBand, iMovie, and Clips

Students and teachers can use these apps to compose music, edit documentary films, and record short video clips.

Swift Playgrounds

It makes learning Swift (a powerful programming language) entertaining and interactive. Everyone Can Code is a comprehensive coding program that includes lessons, teacher guides, and apps that make teaching coding simple. Learning to code helps students how to solve problems, collaborate creatively, and create apps that help them bring their ideas to life.

4) Apple Ecosystem & Accessibility

Apple has created sophisticated technologies designed explicitly for schools.

It offers Privacy Controls, Student Data Protection, Storage and Retention, Location Controls, Parental Controls, and many other security facilities which ensure the safety and security of students and schools.

Apple provides various apps and service products for schools like

Apple School Manager

is a free web-based service that assists school administrators in deploying iPads and also creating Managed Apple ID accounts for students, class rosters for Schoolwork, and Classroom apps. It also enables tracking the progress of a student.

Managed Apple ID

Accounts are created to provide students with access to iCloud Drive, Photo Library, Backup, Schoolwork, and Shared iPad. Students can use any device to access their learning materials.

All files on the iPad are encrypted, this is enabled automatically where the user’s passcode is used to generate a unique encryption key to secure data.

2) Everyone Can Code:It has resources that help teachers introduce students to Swift code through interactive puzzles and activities.

3) Develop in Swift:It has free curricula and professional learning materials that make it easy for teachers to help students start designing and developing apps.

( D ) Teaching Tools: Classwork and Schoolwork are amazing apps that enable teachers to teach and monitor students’ progress at a personalised level.

“iPad is indeed a powerful tool for learning that has wide-ranging impacts on teaching and learning, including changes in pedagogical practices, improved learning outcomes, and engagement for students.” Colin Schot, Principal, Sunshine Special Developmental School.

6) Go Paperless

Schools these days are aiming towards becoming sustainable and eco-friendly as much as possible.

Schools using iPads can greatly reduce the need for paper products and thus promote an eco-friendly culture. Students can download their assignments and read e-books, research journals, and academic publications online instead of keeping track of homework or carrying traditional textbooks.

Likewise, teachers can also create presentations and assignments for students using iPads, which lessens the need for paper.


Many schools around the world have become Apple Distinguished Schools. Such schools use iPad and Mac products to increase student creativity and critical thinking. Such schools promote enhanced learning experiences for their students. Certain schools in India have implemented iPad programs and successfully gained a better learning experience.


“We need to provide multiple means of learning in our classrooms. Multiple ways to learn new concepts and make connections. Opportunities to touch, move, see, and hear should be abundant.” 

         – Jenny Grabiec, Apple Distinguished Educator, The Fletcher School

The iPad is the best handy tool created for next-gen that can make schools versatile, and have access to high-tech functions which will provide students with all the experiences in one place.

Classrooms equipped with iPads create wonders as they become students’ best friends and they can personalise it with around 1,90,000 education apps available. Such smart classrooms make the schools well in touch with the latest ed-tech, empowering students to get the best and flourish overall in their lives.
