  • PROS:  
Hundreds of educational iPad apps, more every dayiPod and iPhone apps run on iPadRead books in iBooksMulti-touch displayRotate iPad to view pages in landscapeExcellent screen clarityNavigating on iPad by touching the screenEase of useShallow learning curve for usersSingle-tasking may help certain students focus betterBetter battery life than many laptops, up to 10 hoursCONS:iPad is not a computer, but more like a big iPod/iPhone.iPads cannot be used for state testing.iPad does not have an external keyboard.The only images that can be sent to a projector from an iPad are from Mac programs called Pages and iMovie.  In other words, you cannot project your actual iPad screen to demonstrate processes to students.The iPad, much like the iPhone, is completely locked down, which means that you cannot make changes to hardware configuration without voiding the warranty.iPad is not compatible with Adobe’s flash technology Some popular sites for education, such as Starfall use Flash, so students could not access it from an iPad. Companies like Starfall would need to develop apps specifically for the iPad.iPads will not survive a drop of even a few feet.  A protective case is essential, and even then an iPad will break if not handled with care.iPad does not multi-task.  It can't run background processes.iPad has a maximum storage of 64 GBiPad.iPad does not have a user-removable battery. 
iPad does not have an HDMI port for easy compatibility with HDTVs
iPad is a bit heavy.  It weighs 1.5 pounds.iPads need adapters. If you want to plug anything into the iPad, such as a digital camera, you need all sorts of adapters, including a USB adapter.
  • Sound note -SoundNote is the best way to take notes on your iPad.It tracks what you type and draw while recording audio, so you'll never worry about missing an important detail.While playing back your recording, just tap a word; SoundNote will jump right to that point in the audio.If you need to use another document or app, SoundNote will automatically pause the recording. When you come back, just tap the "Record" button. SoundNote will continue from where you left off.Use SoundNote's powerful drawing tool for quick sketches. It's easy to edit them, too. Tap a drawing to select it, or tap twice to select an individual stroke. From there, you can drag it to wherever you want, or tap "Delete" to get rid of it. Use two fingers to zoom and scroll.SoundNote is perfect for students. If you ever fall asleep in class, don't worry — SoundNote's got your back. Just tap what you wrote while you were awake, and SoundNote will play the audio to help you fill in the blanks.SoundNote is also great for journalists. Ever miss an important detail during an interview and have to skim through your entire recording to find out what it was? With SoundNote, just tap a word from that part of the interview — it'll play back what you missed.When you're done, share your text, drawings, and audio notes via email, or transfer them directly to your Mac or PC. Audio notes are recorded in standard M4A format: One hour of high quality audio is only 20MB.
