iPad kui hariduse tulevik?
Minu reaktsioon sarnanes pigem Roonemaa omaga – kena mänguasi, kuid milleks ta hea on – kuid mõned on siiski huvitavaid täheldusi teinud:
Sülearvuti on mul niigi kaasas, telefon ka. Sülearvutiks on iPad liiga väike, ebamugav ja lihtsakoeline. Telefoniks aga liiga suur.
Henrik Roonemaa, Päevalehele.
In the longer run the iPad will compete with your university, or in some ways enhance your university. It will offer homework services and instructional videos and courses, none of which can work well on the current iPhone or Kindle. The device also seems to allow for collaborative use.
Tyler Cowen, Marginal Revolution’is.
The iPad makes it possible to replace static images with interactive puzzles that MacInnis says burn important concepts in to students’ brains better and longer. He showed me a demo learning module that explained the biological concept of cellular mitosis. It starts with a real microscope image of a cell. A caption, simultaneously spoken by a voiceover (They call this karaoke mode. It turns out to help memory better than either text or speech by itself) instructs me to tap the cells nucleus three times to simulate its breakdown. Further steps in the mitosis process require me to pinch, drag or swipe components in the cell after identifying them. When I’m done, I have a memory of having walked through the process physically, rather than just scanning an illustration with my eyes.

Besides the interactive color format, Inkling’s technology goes beyond the Kindle and other readers by making it possible to hop around a book, to hand out individual chapters as assignments, and to take notes in highlighter yellow right on the text. The notes are sharable among a social network of students and instructor.
Matt MacInnis, VentureBeat’ile.
Mida rohkem sellele mõelda, seda veenvam see tundub.
