"It was a good experience to use the iOS devices, most especially in using the iPad, for us to know what other features would I apply with my iOS devices. Like the apps using virtual reality, it's fascinating to see the 4D forms from the device's screen. I had a fulfilling experience to be a part of this seminar activity.” – Marky Pampolina

The seminar helped those who aren't familiar with the technology.” – Cyrene Rivera

The seminar taught us about learning with the help of iPad and how it helps us to be more creative, and be more productive inside the classroom. Mr. Mark Anthony discussed iPad has something for everything that teachers may teach. And everything that students want to learn. He even introduced different apps, and interactive books, videos that opens up new opportunities and receive education and learning in many different ways that trends. And in the future it can help you plan for your growth in your chosen career or inspire you to obtain training in a career that will offer you more opportunities for advancement as well as to your personal growth.


Apple Inc. believes in the power of technology to transform classrooms.


“iPad is transforming the way we teach and learn. Powerful creative tools, interactive textbooks, and a universe of apps and content make for endless learning possibilities. All on a device everyone already loves to use.”


“Study very well! What you learn is something that no one can ever steal from you” These are words which parents, guardians, teachers and all other adults had enlisted in the youth's minds. But why do we have to learn? Or should I say, why do we have to keep learning?


As defined by Merriam Webster, learning is "the activity or process of gaining knowledge or skill by studying, practicing, being taught, or experiencing something." First, study. Learning is a lifetime investment. It is true that "whatever principle of intelligence we attain unto in this life, it will rise with us." Rise in a way that as we grow, it will be instilled within us. However, there are times that learning does not come naturally. People have to study. They have to experiment on things that are necessary for them to learn. If learning is accompanied with proper study and pondering, it will indeed accumulate good results.

Next, practicing. People believe that "practice makes perfect." With that, I refused. I believe that "CORRECT PRACTICE makes one PERFECT. We always know what the right things are. But are we doing it the right way? Someone can say that he practices well. But he cannot say that he is practicing it the right way if he is not applying the correct principles. Practicing should always be anchored with the correct principles, belief and action. But remember, if you are just beginning to practice, do not be disappointed if you failed. Bear in mind that it is a process. You sometimes fail, then eventually succeed.


Third, you have to learn how to be taught. Yes, learning can be done in such a way that you're doing it all by yourself. You search for truths, gain necessary information and that's it! To you I say that knowledge does not only come that way. Remember when you were a little child? Someone helped you to walk. How was it done? Your parents guided you, taught you how to step one by one, then two and three. They let go when they knew you can stand alone. It is good that you discover truths for yourself. That is being independent. But it is better to accept learnings from other people, especially to those who teach correct principles. And that is belief and trust.


The last is through experience. They say that, "Experience is the best teacher." I absolutely believe that. Remember the first time you used an iPad? Before when you don't have it, you just listen to what others say about its specs and the special things it offers. But when you've finally got one, you've seen how reliable and true the things that you've heard from others. When you experience how to use it, you've found out that is indeed helpful. There are a lot of things in this world that is really hard to be understood by words. But when you come to experience how things work and how learning is acquired, you'll then realize the greatness of experiencing things in this life.


As Millennials, we are blessed with unlimited things for learning. The iPad, through which we can easily access the things that we need to learn, the possible experiences we can get by using it wisely, and by learning how to be taught willingly. It is truly a great honor and a privilege to live in these days. If we will just strive to learn and make learning as an investment, I know with surety that we will be blessed at the last day .
