The iPad is a very powerful tool for learning, and at St. Johns it serves to enhance the best educational practices that are already in place. As a learning tool the iPad provides a common platform that focuses on both digital presentation of knowledge and as a creation tool allowing students to learn by doing.
The iPad is a common tool for all students that contains their textbook, access to assignments, Internet connection, and interface for advance technology including digital whiteboards and probeware.
