Engagement is an important part of learning. Guidance, inspiration, and general interest lead to successful learning outcomes. It is crucial that district administrators and teachers create an interactive and collaborative learning environment for students to become engaged and involved in the curriculum. Below are some recommendations for how to use technologies to enhance learning in the digital classroom and create a successful and engaging learning environment.

  1. Use interactive learning tools that engage students by leveraging the rich Apple ecosystem of education apps, as well as, the iBookstore for digital textbooks.
  2. Provide guidance in the classroom by leveraging technologies like Apple’s Guided Access, so that teachers can focus student iPads on specific learning apps and websites.
  3. Create a personalized learning experience by providing self service technologies for students using important attributes tailored towards student performance, learning style, and demographics to get the content to them that they will engage with and benefit from the most. Also, leverage iBeacons to extend these capabilities and enable distribution of apps and content to students based on proximity to buildings, classrooms, or libraries.
  4. Create a transformative learning experience for students by leveraging the power of technologies like iPad to engage students’ senses and provide adaptive learning programs, tactile learning, and interconnected education and social learning tools.
