While I was a student, textbooks, notepads and pencils or pens all were classroom necessities, but now the technology age has changed the landscape of schools across the world. Tablet, as a useful teaching tool, has taken the school by storm since its first introduction. Meanwhile, some worry that the introduction of these tablets may cripple students for their’real life” experiences. The truth is the opposite: laptop tablets bring a significant impact on education and help students develop core skills such as creativity and concentration.
1. Help students to perform better and study more efficiently in classes
Doing research is an essential part of a classroom. But it would take a long time to complete this task without internet-enabled computer tablets. Most of the students will go to the school library to find some useful documents or materials and take notes to assist them to finish the research successfully. But it needs much time to get this job done. Students, therefore, often are well be plagued by matters like these. If you have one Android Tablet(or 10 -inch tablet), this job is a piece of cake. Since electronic tablets have introduced into the curriculum, students can access the ever-expanding source of information by just a couple of clicks. It will take less time to finish the research. Students study very efficiently. Alongside this merits, the mobile device has another often-mentioned benefit-updated information. Alongside this advantage, the smart tablet has another often-mentioned benefit-updated information in real time. As for old generations, they often have some old and outdated information from textbooks which cannot provide students with the latest and right information. It can frustrate students. But the tablet-notebook can offer them accurately and the updated information and allow them to update their knowledge in real time. All students can catch up with the ever-changing world.
2.Enhance Interactive Learning
As the saying goes, “the best method to learn is to ask questions constantly.”As for some students, they often feel intimidated and embarrassed when seeking help or ask questions while facing some difficulties and complex problems. As a result, they choose to figure these problems out by themselves or don’t solve these questions. But the touch-screen tablet is a cure and can help students to handle this challenge quite well. Students only open the tablet and type their problems; then they will get help and answers from teachers or classmates. It takes less than a minute.
Apart from this benefit, tablets also offer students a sharing platform. These latest tablets also allow teachers to send homework or tasks to students by text. And students can learn from mistakes through real-time feedback and correct these mistakes quickly. By this active interactive learning, the computer tablet can allow teachers to track students’ performance, and it is good for them to set a complete and reasonable teaching method based on students’learning performance. In addition to merits as mentioned above, many apps are pre-installed on tablets. The learning-based Apps has changed significantly in the way we learn. Students can learn words and other skills (organizational skills) while playing games. That improve students’motivation in learning.
3.Help Students with ADHD and learning disabilities
IPads and other tablets(such as a 7-inch tablet) also work well for some students with ADHD. Among students, some of them have a medical condition -ADHD. They often cannot focus their attention and cannot stay on their tasks more often. But in fact, they are as smart as everyone else. So it is very tough for them and their parents to take it through the school. Now the tablet can solve their problems. Many educational apps and games have been pre-installed on pads and students can choose one of them to play based on their preferences. While compared to common learning knowledge during class, these games have some inbuilt incentives, meaning that players can get a reward or collect some points when they complete a task. These brand-new assertive learning tools encourage children to complete the work and get the prize. They, in the result, are not easy to get distracted and offer the tailored curriculums.
Additionally, due to the tablet’s touchscreen and design, it is accessible for children with learning and coordination difficulties; these students may only tap and slide the screen to get useful information. Moreover, a Windows Tablet PC is portable, and children can carry it anywhere.

The computer has dominated the world. If you want to get a good job and a decent salary, you need to know how to learn and develop computer skills, such as Emails Management Skills, Word Processing. These skills are very vital and useful for future jobs. Besides, this comfortable tablets also can foster people’s creativity and imagination-draw pictures, compose music or make or edit films without any extra tools required. These allow students to become creative and active information recipients rather than passive ones.
