iPad Education Dilemma

By | source: Feb 21st, 2012

Technology and education go hand in hand in our modern society. Even high school students can’t survive without a computer. Computers are used to research for projects, type papers and assignments and to chat with friends on facebook;). With the introduction of the iPad, Apple has had the vision to use the iPad to innovate the way schools use technology.

Apple has introduced a software to create textbooks for the iPad. High school students can now obtain textbooks on their iPad, instead of recieving hard copy textbooks. The cost is a big deterrent to implementing this new way to access schoolwork. To start fresh, using textbooks is 41% cheaper than iPads. This is a huge cost increase for an institution that is currently facing major budget cuts that have lead to teacher layoffs.

How do you feel about iPad textbooks? I personally understand the benefits to college use, cutting the high textbook costs for students, considering how many college students already have iPads, but I don’t see the practicality for high school students. What do you think? [Via]
