iPad dominates the schools market, but for how long? App-maker John Friend investigates
The landscape of technology in schools has changed rapidly since the iPad launched just over three and a half years ago. Now around 40 per cent of UK primary schools are using tablets, and almost 20 per cent of pre-schools. That’s according to research my company, Apps in My Pocket, carried out earlier this year.
At the end of October, Apple CEO Tim Cook came up with an extraordinary claim of a 94 per cent market share in the education tablet market in the US. That figure took a lot of people by surprise, but it was a relief for me.
