The 15 Best iPad Apps For The World Language Classroom The iPad has fundamentally changed how and what I teach in my Spanish classes. First of all, I no longer use textbooks. Ever. The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools When you think of iPads in schools, you probably think of a cart that's wheeled into a classroom.

Such answers are better learned with an iPad, according to a new study that shows just how tablets tap neurocognitive abilities that help students understand enormous scale and other difficult concepts.

Schneps explained that his virtual solar system study examined iPad use that is a bit different from most classroom applications.
