Apple Targets Schools with iPad 5th and 6th Generation
Apple has always been a leader in Education and targeting their products for students and schools. Way back to the Apple I and Apple II computers, Steve Jobs and the leadership of Apple has always played a long term school game hoping students would become lifelong users of their products. This was long before the introduction of the iPad, or certainly the iPad 5th
Generation or iPad 6th Generation! But now in 2018, here we are and iPads in the classroom for 1:1 (“one to one”) programs is the textbook of tomorrow for students and teachers in the classroom.
In early 2018 Tim Cook hosted an event in Chicago featuring the iPad initiative in schools and classrooms and introduced the iPad 6th Generation. This new iPad added Apple Pencil (the Apple stylus) to the latest version of the iPad, and reduced the price for the iPad 6th Generation to just $299 for schools and school districts. This amazing low price, coupled with a lot of software to manage iPads by Technology Administrators in Schools showed that Apple is once again doubling-down in the Education Ed-Tech space. They are active participants in ISTE an other organizations helping to promote technology in the classroom.
