This year we used iPads to test them out, for possible use for school. It was a huge success, in my opinion. A favorite applications of mine was the BrainPop app. The iPads are special because they are a mobile learning device. The tech teachers put all sorts of learning apps on them! They were a really cool addition to the curriculum! By the the middle of the year in Language Arts, all we used were iPads! They are coming back next year too!
