Advantages of the iPad®

Today’s students are immersed in a digital world. Mobile communication has changed the way people learn and work.  According to the U.S. Department of Education and recent studies by the National Training and Simulation Association, technology-based instruction can reduce the time students take to reach a learning objective by 30 to 80 percent[1].

After careful research and review, we believe that the iPad is the best instrument to prepare our students for their 21-century educations and careers as it supports multiple learning and teaching styles and makes education more accessible and relevant.  Students are placed front and center in their learning as they 

  • explore dynamic content and creative approaches to learn, solve problems, build and apply knowledge
  • communicate and collaborate in real-time with classmates and teachers
  • develop self-discipline and digital skills as they learn responsible uses for technology in the classroom and beyond
  • prepare to thrive in digital environments, such as those found at colleges and universities, as they are trained to submit homework and offer meaningful contributions online
  • become responsible contributors in helping McAuley to go “green” by using technology to reducing our ecological footprint
