What You Want to Know About iPads in Education

Is your school considering purchasing iPads for your classrooms? If so, you probably have some questions about the devices, apps, and how to use the devices themselves in the classroom. Three educators from Palm Beach County schools have constructed a wiki to help people answer those questions and more.

On the Palm Beach County schools' iPad in Education wiki you will find a chart comparing the iPad to desktop and laptop options. The chart breaks down the costs and capabilities of each scenario. On the wiki you'll find long lists of iPad apps appropriate for elementary, middle, and high school students. And if you need help just learning to use an iPad the iPad in Education wiki lists a bunch of good tutorial videos and other tutorial materials.
