James Harmon, a veteran English teacher from the Cleveland area, conducted his own experiment. Results – students learned better with the aid of iPads if used correctly. Observations include (pretty obvious right):

  • Students were also more eager to write on the devices and composed longer essays than when writing in a notebook
  • devices made their lessons more engaging and helped them connect with students
  • iPads made it easier to give students “more frequent and timely feedback on writing.”
