How to Use a Tablet for Teaching? Tips and Tricks for Maximum Classroom Engagement

Teacher using a tablet for teaching to engage students in classroom learning

With the schemes and initiatives of government-providing tablets for teaching, one might assume the approach to teaching will also change. However, many teachers remain hesitant to fully use these devices, missing out on the opportunities the teacher tab offers. 

Based on our extensive experience working with government school teachers, we learned that one significant factor hindering the adoption of teacher tabs: is a resistance to technology in general, not solely limited to tablets but extending to all classroom devices. Recognizing this, we have fine-tuned our solutions, including smart classrooms, digital libraries, and tablets, with a focus on user-friendliness and intuitive design. By prioritizing a seamless user experience, we aim to eliminate any hesitation teachers may have, encouraging them to confidently use technology to deliver engaging lessons and foster a collaborative learning environment.

To maximize the use of teacher tablets, we should first focus on prioritizing the needs of teachers such as:

Choosing the Right Tablet for teachers: 

Based on our extensive experience collaborating with teachers, we understand that they are most comfortable with their Android-based mobile devices. Given this natural friendliness for Android phones, Android tablets present a seamless transition and an ideal device to encourage regular use of technology by teachers. The familiar interface and intuitive functionality of Android tablets make them a user-friendly and accessible option for teachers to incorporate into their daily routines.

Essential Apps for Teachers: 

Simply providing the device will not be enough; it will merely add another piece of technology in  teachers’ hands. Instead, the emphasis should be on equipping teacher tablets with educational software that enhances teaching by making it more engaging, simple, and efficient. Preinstalled educational solutions on tablets can assist teachers in planning structured lessons, teaching with diverse content, and developing personalized classroom instruction.

Considering this, we have developed an educational solution specifically for teacher tablets called iPrep Coach.

This all-in-one platform combines a wealth of features, allowing teachers to effortlessly create structured lesson plans with diverse content, design personalized assessments for their classes, and record live lectures to foster a more engaging and interactive learning environment for students.
