Tablet and iPad Kiosks in Education

Tablets have found their way into many aspects of education, and across all levels - from primary schools to universities and colleges. In many cases, tablets represent a more secure and reliable alternative to computers. Tablet and iPad kiosks provide students with new opportunities to interact and learn.

See our case studies and inspirations page for great examples of how schools and universities use tablet and iPad kiosks.

Unique solutions for rough environments

Classrooms, common areas, and libraries are rough environments for technology at any school or university. No matter the user age, there are spills, bumps and crashes. Keyboards stop working. Mice stop clicking. Screens fade or break.  

The arrival of iPads and tablets in schools feels like a breath of fresh air – particularly when those iPads and tablets can be fixed in place, protected, secured, and readily repaired and replaced through installation in kiosks. Thanks to our tablet enclosures and iPad kiosks, the Armodilo team is proud to be a partner of schools and universities in North America and around the world.

You know those internet terminals you’ve seen in classrooms, libraries and student centres? The bulk and tangle of all those desktop PCs, peripherals and cables are being replaced by sleek, inexpensive, secure tablet enclosures for kiosk deployment, where tablets offer a familiar user experience to students who prefer to do research and consume information by tapping, pinching, and using apps.

Tablet Kiosks Replacing Desktop PCs

Compared to desktop PCs deployed in libraries and classrooms, tablet kiosks require a smaller physical footprint – and offer fewer points of potential failure – when providing students access to the internet or internal systems like library and course catalogues.

Educational games and learning tools are now more widely available as apps than as PC software. Younger students are often more familiar and comfortable with touch-based user experiences than they are with keyboards and mice.

Tablet Kiosks for Real-Time Feedback

Tablet kiosks using Armodilo enclosures are being used to gather ongoing and real-time feedback from students on college campuses. Old-school paper-based suggestion boxes are getting replaced by interactive stations that let students raise issues like a need for more cafeteria seating, or better lighting in the student parking lots.

Serviceability & Uptime

Serviceability & Uptime

Cost and footprint savings aside, another big reason for educators shifting from PCs to tablets is serviceability. With the buttons and ports of tablets protected by enclosures, failure rates are far lower than PCs.  If a problem develops, a replacement device can be swapped in to an Armodilo tablet enclosure in a matter of seconds.
