Perse Girls Senior School recently rolled out a one to one iPad project in their school in Cambridge UK, and this video from apple resellers, Square Group Ltd, shows how the iPad has transformed learning in their school. We liked how the students being interviewed described how the iPads in the classroom helped their learning (at 2m 40sec) and how the teachers felt the iPad had an effect on collaboration and teamwork in the classroom. It is great to see how education technology can transform a classroom, and see it being used in a practical way.
