This year my school began using iPads. Personally, I thought that the iPads were pretty good although I think that having MacBook Airs would be so much better! Using the iPads has been fun but it would be a lot faster typing on the laptop or even writing for that matter. When you are taking notes you need to be able to do it quickly so iPads can be a negative in that sense.
I have used my iPad mostly in spanish and Language Arts. In spanish I did homework and took notes with my iPad. In Language Arts I have used it in many different ways, from writing stories to blogging. I feel like the iPads expand the things that we can do, for example, blogging. We could never blog on paper. The iPads have been pretty good and fun to use although it has its positives and negatives.
