The world is going through the phase where technology is influencing almost everything, it evolved so much that no aspect of modern human life is now untouched with it. Education, being an important aspect of human life right from the beginning of the civilized world, has failed to be an exception this time.
Information technology has breached education in the past one decade with mobile technology getting deeper in the system. Today all the major institutions across the world are either using or planning to switch to education tablets or other smart tools.
Earlier they used to have tablets, a handy touch screen device that people used for their entertainment. But today this amazing piece of mobile technology is used in the field of education also with the introduction of "Education Tablets.”
Since this technology is still in its startup, there are not many players or manufacturers providing education tablets. In India, Classteacher Learning System is the only company making education tablets called Classpad. But the way information technology and mobile technology has spread its reach in the past one decade, it is likely that in a couple of years these small wonders will turn heavy school bags into history and your child will carry only a tablet in his hand while going to school.
“With the help of Education tablets such as classpad, we are giving a sort of wings or rocket boost to the grasping power of our students, which is eventually going to help in the process of evolution by making our new generation smarter and faster than the previous one.” Said Nirupam Rajkumar Marketing Head, Classteacher Learning Systems.
Education tablets are simple tablets, may be android or apple devices, which are loaded with programs and applications that are meant to be used for education purpose. Usually these devices also carry a set of programs that connect the user (students and teachers) to a cloud server which provides users with all the data, such as education resources, practice sheets, assessments, reports etc.
