Sudents getting iPads. It's going to be harder to convince people that education is underfunded now.

My guess is that Apple either donates or at least sells them at a very low cost for both advertising and future sales purposes,

If these iPads can be used only for school related purposes and have to be returned at the end of the school year, I can see the benefit and would be OK with it. However, if the students get to keep them over the summer and/or use them for Facebook, Twitter, Youtube ect, absolutly not! Give me my money back now!

What many fail to recognize is that devices like iPads can be cost savings by the decrease in the price of text books. That said technology should be a tool that teaches rather than technology for sake of technology.

I don't necessarily agree that every student needs an iPad; however, if we are to make sure that all students are able to be productive members of society by the time they're done with school, we do need to get more technology into their hands and teach them how to use it appropriately.
