    40. 40. We are now at the stage where the iPad is embedded in the way we do business at the school. When we first started, we thought we could guard against misuse by threatening to take away the child’s iPad for a day or so. It turns out that doing so would now completely break the school day for that child. We might as well make them sit in the hallway and face the wall for the entire day. I did not expect that we would reach that point so soon.<br />

    46. 46. "It became clear during the short extent of our study thus far the power of the device for libraries, mobile data collection, for small group work, and for special needs students.  It’s not like a laptop in those situations, but more like a completely different type of instructional tool–because it is so much more mobile and because of the screen profile and touch screen."<br /> http://futura.edublogs.org/2010/11/06/preliminary-results-ipads-in-classroom-and-libraries/<br />
