Inspiration is always at hand. Explore the bottom of the ocean. Make Benjamin Franklin your guest speaker. Update course materials with the tap of a finger. iPad gives you so many ways to engage your students and bring every lesson to life.

A World of Content. Something for every lesson. And learner.

With iPad, your classroom materials go way beyond the classroom. Discover over 65,000 apps just for education, interactive books on every subject, and speeches, virtual tours, and videos from experts and institutions around the world.

iPad makes learning more personalized.

Everyone learns differently. With just a few taps, you can customize your students’ iPad with materials that fit their level and learning style. Say you’re teaching a physics lesson on inertia. For your students who learn best by listening, download a podcast from iTunes U on Newton’s laws of motion. And for those who learn through tactile interaction, find an app that lets students shoot arrows at a target. The wide range of content across subjects and years also makes it easy to tailor iPad for students at a variety of learning levels. With iPad, you can teach all your students the same lesson — in different ways.

Powerful Free Apps from Apple. Make everyday assignments extraordinary.

Students don’t just watch, listen, or read with iPad — they create with it. iPad comes with powerful apps that turn every assignment into something big. A multimedia presentation. A photo documentary. A riveting research project. Suddenly, the work they need to do becomes work they want to do — on a device they love to use.

Pages, Numbers and Keynote. Help your students produce their best work.

With iPad and these powerful apps, students write, analyze data, and present their work in engaging ways. In Pages, students make essays anything but ordinary with photos, videos, and graphics. For data-rich projects, Numbers helps them express ideas in tables, charts, and graphs that go way beyond a mere spreadsheet. And in Keynote, students create presentations with stunning transitions and effects. These apps are designed for iOS devices and Mac. They’re compatible with Microsoft Office so students on a Mac or PC can share documents. And with iCloud, students can access their work from any device they’re using — iPad, Mac, iPhone, or iPod touch.

iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand. More creative ways to create.

These creative apps will transform the typical essay or research project. Students can shoot and edit their own HD video with iMovie, create a visual journal with iPhoto, and even record, edit, and mix music for projects with GarageBand. With iPad and these apps, students can tackle assignments in creative ways. So they’ll put more into their work — and get more out of it.

iBooks Author. Teach your way. With your materials.

iTunes U in Class. From chapter one to finals. It’s your course on iPad.

When you create your own iTunes U course for iPad, your lesson plans and learning materials are all organized in one place. So your students can learn anywhere, anytime. And you can send instant updates on assignments to help your students stay on track.

A great way to connect with the class.

iTunes U also makes it easier to stay in touch with your students. Each time you post an update to the course or send a message about a lesson, your students get an automatic notification through the iTunes U app. And since all the course material can be downloaded directly to iPad, students can keep up with lessons and assignments even when they’re not at school.

Apple TV and iPad. Watch and learn.

With Apple TV, you can use AirPlay to wirelessly stream the content on an iPad to any HDTV. Use it to lead a class brainstorming session, or walk everyone through a presentation. Your students can connect with Apple TV just as easily, giving them the ability to share projects and other work on the big screen. And with iOS 8, students and teachers can also connect iPad to Apple TV without first connecting to the school network. This means anyone in the class can present or share their work even if they are not on the network or if Apple TV is on a different network.
