    "Lucky for you, there's a printable PDF available here and embedded below that enumerates the various ways someone should use the iPad. It is a pretty general acceptable use policy for iPads and seems (to me at least) that it'd be perfect for a K-12 classroom. "

Where are Personal Computers Headed? ~ Chris Pirillo - 2 views

iPads @ school « Tim Kitchen's Blog - 2 views

  • The iPad is not the be all and end all, but it comes close.
  • I believe it won’t be long before we see iPads and equivalent replacing laptops and laptops replacing desktops in schools. The days of the traditional school computer laboratory are numbered.

    It is important to understand that an iPad is not a laptop replacement. It is also not a shared device, not really suited to a class set however it a wonderful personal asset for teachers and students in the classroom. I've been lucky to have had an iPad now since day 1 in Australia and I'm a big fan of them as a support for teaching and learning. I see the iPad and devices like them being essential companions for students and teachers in the near future.

I've had my iPad for about 8 months now, so I've decided to share my reflections so far on what I like about the iPad, what potential I feel it offers for developing course books and course materials and some of the problems."
