Do we need to introduce him as, we all are aware with this name. Steve Jobs, the man who created history by bringing the Revolution in the era of technology. It was his vision which inspired him to bring the revolution in tech world.So, after watching the education system he again saw a vision of building iPad Equipped Classroom. Walter Isaacson collectively shared the story of Steve Jobs! In which he mentioned that “Steve Jobs had a meeting with the president, Barack Obama” in which they shared some points together:-
One: - Regarding the difficulty which he (Steve jobs) faces in building a new factory in the United States.
Two: – He dragged his point of Education system!
And this point was told by Walter Isaacson in his “biography of Steve Jobs”. He precisely described that:
“It was absurd, he added that American classrooms were still based on teachers standing on a board and using textbooks. All books, learning materials, and assessments should be digital and interactive, tailored to each student and providing feedback in real time” Isaacson wrote in the book, simply titled “Steve Jobs.”
Advantage of iPad Equipped Classroom:-
Steve jobs believed that such a technology (iPad Equipped Classroom) will help the nation in saving the money.
Instead of providing free textbooks, it is better to have a tablet!
However, it seems that the dream of Steve Jobs is going to get complete early. As, a Dutch Committee to Build Steve Jobs iPad Equipped Classroom!
“A panel of four Dutch educators and politicians has proposed a method by which students could be taught with iPads”.
The Proposal (Google Translate) is going to be presented on Monday, in Amsterdam.
The name of the project is “Education For A New Era”.
It has been designed to help the student of “21st Century skills”.
Ans also to explore their limits beyond the classroom education!
However, the proposed “Steve Jobs Schools” are going to hit the floor in August 2013!
Also, earlier this year! Apple came out with a Digital Textbook Initiative. For which the company did a partnership with McGraw-Hill, Pearson and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. All together, the three companies captured about 90% of the over-all markets in the U.S. And now they are moving further to change the high School textbooks classrooms into iPad Equipped Classroom. Also, they have expanded their project “to complete the Dream of Steve Jobs of making the classrooms into (Digital classrooms.)”
