Singapore School - ipad as Textbook replacement
Singapore schools have begun handing out Apple iPads to students, relieving them of the need to carry satchels full of bulging text books and notes.
Nanyang Girls High School has spent S$135,000 to buy 150 iPads for 140 students and 10 teachers in a pilot project. Users connect to the Internet using the tablet, and download books and course material. They can take notes on the iPad, and use worksheets.
Seah Hui Yong, dean of admissions at Nanyang Girls school, said the iPad was chosen because it complemented a new method of teaching under which students are given more freedom to learn themselves, instead of relying solely on the teacher in traditional classrooms.
