I know I’ve already published more than one post about the Ipad in the classroom (1) (2), but I must say that to download the applications and to obtain an Ipad for the teacher are two pretty easy steps. The hard part is to get the tablet for every student. Of course in our imperfect world the access to new technologies is pretty impossible, especially in public schools.
The process of including the Ipad in the curriculum of a class is complicated and expensive. Only a hand full of schools could allow themselves this privilege.
