re: Apple's Education Phenomenon: iPad
I agree with gtigerclaw, there is a lot more on the market today that is cheaper and better suited for education other than iPad. I think that Educational Resources' LearnPad (www.edresources.com) looks to be the best Classroom Tablet Solution to date.

re: Apple's Education Phenomenon: iPad
Last year my daughter's 5th grade class had an opportunity to use iPads for the school year. Her class was part of a pilot program and it quickly became a success. The iPad was used during lessons in school and the students were able to take them home. They had homework assignments on the iPad and they were able to use specific teacher approved apps to enhance learning.

re: Apple's Education Phenomenon: iPad
people seem to forget that the iPad isn't the only game in town anymore - there's a lot of product a lot cheaper that's suited for educational purposes in the market today. From what I see the iPad is expensive, and the consumer will end up going for the best cost and technology.

This game reminds me of the Betamax vs. VCR. While the Betamax was the better product, the VCR won out on cost (both did the same job).

It will be interesting to see how educational content and methods really evolve - and how long it will take do do so, as schools around the world continue to increasingly use the iPad.
