Tablets are making their way into classrooms quickly and the iPad has long ruled the education market. Many schools and educators are using the iPad to make teaching more efficient and deliver content in a streamlined, interactive format. But, as Brian Handwerk describes in his National Geographic article, the transformative power of the iPad might be to transport students outside the classroom. Handwerk writes:
"Schneps pointed to a realistic demonstration of the solar system on the tablet as one such example of something that can be difficult to explain in a classroom. Tapping the unique powers of these devices unleashed neurocognitive learning capabilities in the brain that aren't often used during traditional instruction, he added."
