There are various pros and cons concerning iPad usage in secondary education. A list of the most prominent advantages can be found in the dropdownmenu.
We suggest that the reader takes this list of pros and cons with a grain of salt. This list is not an exact science, and can depend on the situation of each class, school, country or even continent.
We are dealing with iPad usage concerning English Language teaching, but a lot of the formulated tips and the list of pros and cons may also be used for language teaching in general. We do not focus on other subjects such as Mathematics, Biology or Geography. We cannot pass judgement on other subjects, since they are not in our area of activity. For example, we pass on ideas about learning how to write, but we are not in the position to question the usage of iPads in Mathematics, concerning the ease or inconveniences of doing exercises on mobile devices.
This website answers questions concerning iPad usage in English Language Teaching (ELT) and some broader subjects, but may not be seen as a general work concerning iPad usage in secondary education.
