Kids say bye to books, hello to IPad
Not sure this is such a good idea. Don’t get me wrong, I love technology, and the new iPad even more, but I can’t really see this being practical in schools yet. There is the high cost of these units, the replacement cost if dropped or damaged, the fact that schools are going to have to put quite a lot of money aside if they want to adopt them, and many teachers don’t know what to do with them, and when they do use them, they probably don’t fully utilise their potential or use them in the most effect way for learning to occur.
However, time will tell. And I suppose this is one step towards the flexible paper mentioned in the Horizon 2010 report.
