We looked at many different devices and determined that the iPad was the best choice for Holy Cross. It has set the market standard for tablet quality, ease of use, battery life, and applications (apps).
Security was an additional consideration.The iPad is considered to be one of the most secure devices on the market today. Apps for the iPad must be digitally signed by the developer and are distributed through Apple approved channels only.
The iPad's versatility allowing students to multitask using the many different apps available, was another important consideration. Students can perform a variety of tasks using the iPad in an educational environment with numerous requirements.
Our students already live in a digital world. They communicate electronically. They learn electronically. We are committed to helping our students develop technological skills and an appreciation for digital citizenship.
