Using iPad changes the way teachers teach and students learn.

Students, educators, and institutions around the world are using iPad to inspire creativity and hands-on learning that makes learning more powerful. Since Apple launched iPad in 2010, millions have made their way 
 into education. They continue to show significant promise in teaching and learning, often with impressive results. The examples in this document highlight the amazing success stories institutions worldwide are 
 self-reporting in the areas below across K–12 and higher education:

  • Improvement in academic performance
    • Increase in engagement and motivation
    • Rise in cost savings and resource efficiency
    • Integrated focus on content quality and design
  • This document highlights the results or trends institutions 
using Apple products have observed, along with studies that 
 demonstrate the positive impact iPad is having on instruction 
 in the classroom. The data shown in this document is 
 self-reported by the institution—Apple was not involved 
in the gathering or analysis of the data reported, nor 
has any knowledge of the methodology used.

    Academic Performance

    Schools report that academic performance—as measured by standardized test scores and other key student outcomes—is improving with iPad use. A number of K–12 schools, districts, and higher education institutions have reported substantial gains when comparing current student test scores with prior- year test scores, pre- and post-test measures, and increases
 in student performance on state and national assessments.

    Engagement and Motivation

    From preschool to college, reports from institutions overwhelmingly indicate that students using iPad find that 
 it increases their engagement in learning and makes them 
 feel more motivated to learn. Other positive outcomes 
 include a decrease in discipline problems and dropout rates.

    Resource Efficiencies

    It has become more important than ever for districts and schools to manage their financial obligations in order to provide great educational experiences on a limited budget. iPad implementation gives schools 
 the opportunity to create efficiencies and explore cost savings, such as reductions in computer lab maintenance, consumables and textbooks, hardware peripherals, print services, and more.

    Content Quality and Design

    Quality content for iPad and apps for iPad in education lead

    to higher achievement. Research shows the importance of developing features that enhance learning and engage young students, while not distracting from the educational content. Several studies have focused on specific content effectiveness of third-party apps, underscoring that designing quality 
content matters.
