iPads in the Classroom: Do They Strengthen Education?

AFTER A year on the market, the iPad is still the hottest tablet around. And students in Chicago Public Schools have been lucky enough to use them in the classroom for an entire school year.

"What we've found with the iPads as we've rolled this out is having kids with a device such as the iPad in the classroom - within curriculum - is very powerful," said Chicago Public Schools Technology Education Director John Connolly. "Our feedback from our teachers and students is that this is something they're using evey day. It's embedded in all of their subjects, even if they were originally targeting one subject, and w're seeing some really cool things happening with those students."
