iPads Proven to Aid Student Learning

It’s now official: not only is the iPad a fun gadget for easy web browsing and more, a new study in the US has found that the iPad is also good for studying, too.

Oklahoma State University has released findings on an iPad study conducted last autumn among University students, and the findings show that the device had a positive impact in an academic environment.

“We put this powerful and creative tool in the hands of faculty and students and the end result reached beyond enhancing the academic experience of our students,” said OSU President Burns Hargis.

“The report outlines a possible decrease to student and administrative expenses, increased productivity, and how the iPad crosses between academic and personal barriers.”

Professors noted that when iPads were used they saw an increase to the pace of the course, reaching traditional benchmarks sometimes weeks in advance.

The mobile functionality of the device allowed students to work in any environment and the ability of all students to have complete access to the same technology, creating an equal and level playing field.

Oklahoma State University (OSU) has more than 35,000 students across its five-campus system and educates students from 118 countries.
