Apple UK Hot News - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 17:42
The BBC’s Sean Coughlan reports on the Stephen Perse Foundation school in Cambridge where every student has an iPad. Lessons are available on iTunes U so students can “access them at school or at home or anywhere else.” Principal Tricia Kelleher tells the BBC with iPad and iTunes U “you’re getting beyond the one-size-fits-all textbook” saying, “an iPad on its own isn’t inspiring, it’s the way it’s used that’s inspiring.” Teacher Simon Armitage adds, “This used to be just about books, now it is way more than this. iTunes U is the wrapper. It is not changing what many great teachers have been doing, but it is changing how they are doing it and how easily they are able to do it.”
