The Nanyang Girls’ High School in Singapore is one top public schools in the city-state, and in the world’s most expensive city to live in, this history educational institution that is three years shy of its 100th anniversary, is a modern campus located on a nine‑acre facility that has high tech resources including technology‑equipped classrooms alongside broadband Internet access. With more than 1,700 students in the school today, it goes without saying that to churn out the next generation of leaders for the country, the educational system will need to keep up with the times, too. The school places iPads in the hands of teachers and students, helping connect classrooms to the world.
The implementation of apps alongside Multi-Touch books on the iPad, routine schoolwork does not sound like a chore any more, as it is transformed into interactive explorations which will further challenge students to enhance each lesson with their fair share of contributions. Take for instance, the subject of physics. Using the built-in HD video camera and science apps designed for iPad, students are able to discover for themselves the physics behind each rocket launch, and in real time to boot. Having fun while learning, this is the key to unlocking the mind. [Press Release]
