Learning with iPad

No matter your age, iPad is a powerful and engaging tool for learning. Explore new passions, dive deeper into the subjects you’re already studying, or discover a hidden potential.

Learn through play.

Interactive games engage children through sight, sound, and touch. Metamorphabet helps them learn the ABCs by turning letters into fun, animated characters that can be poked and prodded. The monster puzzles of Endless Numbers teach kids to count to 100 at their own pace. And kids can solve visual puzzles with the Tangram for Osmo game system. As they arrange tangram shapes to match what’s on the screen, a playful chime lets them know when they’ve figured it out.

Dive into programming.

With Hopscotch, kids can start programming games, stories, and animations right from the get-go. And they won’t need to type a single line of code to do it.

Explore new worlds.

Use Star Walk 2 to identify constellations while stargazing, or find out exactly when that meteor shower is due so you can get a telescope ready. Discover how our planet works in Earth Primer — a simulator that lets you create volcanoes, sculpt mountains, and control the forces of nature with your fingertips. And if you’re looking to conduct a few experiments of your own, the virtual chem lab in Chemist is a fun, safe way to get started.

Immerse yourself in a new kind of textbook.

Take a 3D tour of the pyramids, hear Mozart’s concertos as you read up on the classical era, or dive deep into biology with interactive, Multi-Touch textbooks like E.O. Wilson’s Life on Earth series.
