Georgia schools considering going to Ipads
Based on a FOX news report, Schools in Georgia are also considering moving to Ipad's for every student. This situation is very similar to what is happening in our school in trying to find an affordable way to incorporate them, as well as figuring out the problems they might bring with them. This article touches on some of these issues, but also makes a few strong points about the positives the Ipads bring. I think it is important that we pay attention to how the Ipads work in other school systems so we can fix our problems before they happen. Since our schools are the first to try this new system, all eyes are going to be on our schools to see how it works out. If our schools use the Ipads positively and the cost is not too high, then other schools would be very interested in going to the Ipads as well. The more schools that used the Ipads, the more the cost would go down. In some ways we are the test group for future education.
