Many teachers currently prefer the use of computers in the classroom. I would like to see it incorporated with applications that could enhance conversation but many schools have restrictions on web browsing. I am not sure how much content and typing a student can have on an ipad. This tool is mainly for reading, interactive visuals and widgets such as voice recorder. I do not see students typing a five paragraph essay on a Ipad.

MONTREAL - It sometimes seems that kids today are so digitally connected they're capable of talking on the phone while sending a text message, replying to an email and posting on a friend's Facebook wall - all within a span of 30 seconds. And while technology may seem to dominate most areas of their lives, some experts say society is losing out by not allowing it to play a bigger role in formal education.
