New iPad App Redesigns Teacher Support with Mobile Dashboard

With the iconic iPad in the crook of their arms, today’s teachers – for the first time – have easy mobile access to high-quality, comprehensive digital teaching content, tools and support specifically designed to take advantage of the powerful new mobile tablet device capabilities to prepare and deliver effective instruction.

Pearson’s new Dash on iPad app for Teachers gives educators mobile access to point-of-use teaching strategies, content information, training resources, engaging videos, lesson plans, discussion topics, test questions and answers, interactive tutorials, and personalized student information — all integrated through a user-friendly touch screen interface.

At the International Society for Technology in Education’s (ISTE) annual conference, Pearson School's head of Mobile Learning Deb Bonanno, said today, "Never before have we been able to empower our educators the way we can now with mobile tablet technology. Devices like iPad allow us to re-imagine how we support teachers in their work, how we can design content, and innovate new teacher productivity tools."
She added, "Dash on iPad supports teachers during lesson preparation and active teaching in an unprecedented manner by giving them mobile access to the information and tools they need, designed specifically for the touch screen mobile tablet device."
Download the Dash app from the Apple App store.
