So I don't want to say too much but basically one of my parents is an educator. In Canada at least (I figure this is going on in the US and other places), Apple has been pushing to get iPads in classrooms. Apparently there's a big board meeting for higher-up faculty in the school board to promote the use of iPads in the classrooms (basically a top-down trickle... teach the principals and get them into it at these meetings, and then get them to meet with teachers at the school-level to teach them). Whether or not Apple is really giving some good cash incentive reasons to the school boards to do this... or whether certain key people are being... paid... I find it both very intelligent of Apple to be pushing to have their products in schools, and also a bit odd that the schools are having this. I just don't see an iPad being a very good elementary school tool for learning. It could be from time to time for some things... but really I don't think it's the best idea on a whole. As far as Apple goes... I mean wow... they're on the ball when it comes to knowing where to advertise and how to get their products out there. What do you guys think?
