“Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it.” -Richard Bach
There have been hundreds of articles this back-to-school season (try Googling ‘iPads in classrooms’) about how various educational institutions, from elementary schools to venerated places of higher learning, are incorporating technology into their classrooms and curricula. What’s so magical about iPads? Quite a lot, it turns out. This article by Ashley Wilson points out that not only are tech-savvy kids more engaged by apps and interactive learning tools, but they’re also getting the most up-to-date information from a very portable and slim source – a far cry from the heavy thousand-page textbooks, already outdated, of the past.
Here at Best TeamBuilding, we know this doesn’t only apply to children. We embrace the best of what the iPad can offer, supplying one to every single team that participates in our SmartHunts team building events, and incorporating its paper-free, green, video-taking, instant tracking, information-filled abilities into many of our other scavenger hunts and team building programs as well. The capabilities of the SmartHunts app, which we continually upgrade, are amazing. Just as a motivated teacher will make sure all the benefits of our wired age end up in the hands of her students, we believe in making certain our clients get the incredible advantage that the very latest technology gives them. We are proud to be the only company in the world offering SmartHunts!
