Used correctly, technology can work miracles in getting learners more involved in the classroom.

One of the major advantages of using technology such as cellphones and iPads in the classroom is that it personalises learning. Most apps are available in various difficulty levels so learners can progress at their own pace until they’ve mastered a new concept.

These apps, specifically developed for iPad, iPhone and iPod, focus on maths for Grades 7-9. They can be downloaded from the iTunes shop.
