iPad in Education

iPad has changed everything. Including the classroom. It has changed the way teachers teach and taking learning way beyond the classroom. There are thousands of education apps, books and courses, to make lessons come to life like never before. The iPad has software designed exclusively for educators, to manage the classroom and collaborate with students in new ways.

iPad apps


iOS is the intuitive, advanced, intelligent and secure mobile operating system designed for iPad that also comes with great features for education that work seamlessly together.

Apple School Manager

A central system for schools to coordinate all that they need to deploy iPad. Create accounts for everyone in the school, define roles and permissions, manage devices and buy and distribute content.

Classroom App

This is a powerful free iPad app that helps teachers guide learning, share work and manage student devices. It is easy to set up on the teacher’s iPad with the help of MDM.

Shared iPad

This provides a personalised learning experience using shared devices, even when a 1:1 student-to-iPad ratio isn’t possible. After students log in, their homework, apps and assignments appear exactly as they left them, regardless of which iPad they last used.

Display Accommodations

To help with colour blindness or other vision challenges, iOS will let you invert colours, enable greyscale or colour filters can be applied. These settings will apply to everything once set and can be customised to what works for you.


Working in full screen or picture-in-picture, Zoom is a built-in screen magnifier that can be adjusted between 100 and 1,500% allowing you to see the zoomed area in a separate window. It also works with VoiceOver.


VoiceOver offers support for more than 30 languages and quite simply will tell you exactly what is happening on the screen of your Mac or iPad, when you can’t see it. Giving auditory descriptions and helpful hints, the speaking rate and pitch can be adjusted to your preference.
