Author's statement - "Over the past couple of years, I have had the awesome opportunity as a principal and teacher to be part of a school that adopted iPads on a 1:1 device to student ratio.  I went into the program unsure if iPads would be as effective of a classroom device as traditional laptops, but have become convinced that the iPad offers more for classrooms than traditional desktop or laptop computers."

Ten great reasons that you could use to support the adoption of iPads in your school.

Jocelyn Larkin's comment, February 26, 2013 5:25 PM
