  • User experience – usability, accessibility uses, multimedia, more engaging experience Applications in special education and for disabilities e.g. usability of touch screen Increasing number of applications for creating stuff - not just a device for “ consuming ” content Good multimedia experience (but no Flash support on ipads!) May 11, 2011
  • Not easy to set up as devices to be shared among students (yet). e.g. limitations/complications with multiple profiles Not a laptop – lots of implications e.g. technical issues in setting up in a college or similar; no Microsoft Office Virtual keyboard not so good for long passages of typing Lack of suitable eBooks for education ( “ this is likely to improve ” ) May 11, 2011
