One massage therapy school in Alberta is taking advantage of new technologies to optimize learning for its students. MaKami College, which has campuses in Edmonton and Calgary, offers its students the latest in tablet technology – the iPad Air – to enhance their learning experience.
"We have been providing our students iPads for courses and translation services since the launch of the first generation iPad in 2010," says Marija Pavkovic, managing director of MaKami College. "We were one of the first schools in Alberta to do this and we've found it's a very effective and innovative learning tool."

Upon registration, each MaKami student receives an iPad Air pre-loaded with not just all courses but interactive programs for hands-on training and translation services for those who struggle with English.

"Students can open up parts of the human body for example, to get a better view of what they're learning, and that's very effective," says Pavkovic. "Many of our students are also newcomers to Canada or immigrants, so we have various specialized apps to help them translate their textbooks so they can learn in their native language."
