This is How Apple Changes Education, Forever - 4 views

  • have a theory, though. I think Apple will introduce a Classroom iPad for $199 before the year is out. Pure speculation? Absolutely. However, considering how serious Apple is about improving the state of education, this makes real sense. I imagine it will be a 1024×768, 9.7-inch screen (while the iPad 3 gets the Retina Display and maybe changes size or shape), with a plastic back and rugged shell that only the school can remove. There will be a single, rear-facing camera, and the tablet will be locked down with access to the iBooks 2 app and pre-loaded textbooks. Safari will come pre-loaded, but it’ll run through Apple’s special proxy education server (yes, I’m making that up, too).There will be no App Store or iTunes account associated with it and schools will manage all of them centrally.

    Be interesting to use this in a class discussion on the viability of the iPad or other similar devices as content consumption and/or creation devices along side the debate that has to do with how textbooks are changing.

    Great site for posting presentations and also posting presentation on a webpage. The presentations are on a shelve. I just started using and love it. It is easy to use and you can just upload PPT, DOC, RFT, EXCEL, etc into it to get the page turning book effect. Plus, links in the presentation are active. This is a new must know site for any educator or preofessional developer that uses technology regularly. You can view some education samples I put up at http://en.calameo.com/accounts/285487 if you are interested. Plus, it has very detailed user controls.
