  • Absence of delete and arrow keys can make for a frustrating keyboarding experience
  • There can be a fair amount of screen glare when using the iPad at certain angles and in direct sunlight.
  • The iPad is a great tool both in and out of the classroom. Starting at $499 for the wi/fi, 16 GB base model.
  • If you choose to use this new technology in the classroom you will be a pioneer in your field…
  • Much like the inventor himself…. (steve jobs and stevewozniak, circa 1976)
  • That’s a good thing…but it does come with a downside.
  • You’ll need a bit of tech savviness to pull this off.We don’t have an Apple expert on ITS staff readily available to assist you. So, you will need to become an expert. You need to feel comfortable using technology, performing basic troubleshooting, and be willing to figure things out on your own.

Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Theysomehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else issecondary.” -- Steve Jobs, 1955-2011
