Carrington College is throwing textbooks out the window.
Ok, maybe not literally… but you get the idea.
Why? Because our students don’t need them anymore! We’re bringing the technology into the classroom to enhance teaching and learning.
Let’s face it…writing is hard. So is lugging around a million pounds of books…and it’s so last year! Now Carrington College students can leave those heavy backpacks at home. Starting this year, most students get an iPad mini™ when they start class and…they can keep it when they graduate!
You deserve the best, and that’s why we’re committed to using iPad minis™ in every classroom across all of our 18 campuses. This is only the beginning – the sky is the limit at Carrington College!
Ummm…where are my books?
Right in front of you! You load up each iPad mini™ with the books you’ll need for your program. That means no more heavy backpacks!
You can use your digital books on your iPad mini™ in more ways than you’d use old school books – to read, highlight and take notes. Plus the internet is right there, so you don’t need to be by your laptop while you study.
“There have been so many instances where I just NEEDED a question answered. My iPad mini™ allowed me to access my question I came up with via the internet, videos from lab class, all three of my books and more,” said Dental Assisting student Allison Barrett.
Why not just use regular books?
Studying with digital books is WAY easier. You can access them anytime, anywhere!
“I was even able to study while getting my tires changed! This helped me make good use of my time,” said Medical Assisting student Alisha Dougherty.
Now, let’s talk about the size.
An iPad mini™ fully loaded with an entire library of books weighs less than a pound. Think about how much all those textbooks in a backpack would weigh…which would you rather carry around all day? Plus, did you know backpack-related injuries sent more than 7,000 people to the emergency room in one year alone? Heavy backpacks can be a major pain!
Guess what isn’t a pain? Carrying around an iPad mini™ thinner than a pencil.
What about any old books I have laying around?
Of course you can keep them, you paid for them! If you want to look back and review old material and study stuff you’ve forgotten, they’re a great resource.
But seriously, this is awesome. Don’t just take our word for it! Check out the sneak peek above to see what using an iPad mini™ in class at Carrington College is like.
