I wonder why Gabriel. So many kids have some sort of smart device at home it would seem that it work well depending on the course. Spelling is great. I'm speaking of elementary kids.

I don´t know what the reason was, but they often had some technical problem and instead of helping during the lesson they just caused problems. But the best thing about the tablets at school is the leighter backpack.

10 Big Concerns About Tablets In The Classroom

10 Big Concerns About Tablets In The Classroom | IT | Scoop.it

Parents and teachers need to consider a myriad of issues specific to young people.

Some interesting issues that concern many parents and teachers.

Very good points ! Once parents are shown what the tablet can or can't do, they become supporters. We have had no major accidents with tablets so far with 4 graders. (9-10 year old pupils).

Still, I wonder how distracting these can be.  I have had students say they prefer print because they can study and read without the temptation to jump on Facebook.
