Middle schools? I wouldn't trust kids that age nowadays.... I know I wouldn't have been able to handle one back then. But high schools and collages would benefit from this.No signature links... only warning

This is a great idea. Hopefully it catches on and becomes a part of all levels of education. Regardless of how advanced we get technologically speaking, spelling and handwriting are still essential aspects of every person's life. It's sad that some people can't write neatly, read cursive, or spell properly.

so much resources are wasted on traditional books

This may happen in private schools but it will never happen in a public school. Some public school children can barely afford school uniforms. Imagine them trying to pay another $500 per school year just for an Ipad. Even more if u are a family with several children.
Just dont see it happening in public schools. Especially public schools that are majority low income families.
Would it be a good idea, YES.
But too many people like to complain about way too many things. Even if it does make life a little easier.
Look at how much the JB community complains when they dont have a timely JB. And then they complain even more when a bug is found. And the bad part is the JBers are getting that stuff for free. Now force the JB community to pay $500 a year for JB's and lets see how much they complain.

they are already paying a lot for textbooks

this will never work. kids are careless and the ipads will be broken in one month. why ipads? why not kindles or nook? unless ipads are restricted to just textbook apps then its a waste of money to choose a ipad. whats the chance of them losing it or getting it stolen?

Also they could just charge the parents... Also lots of kids are like amazed at an iPad I don't think they would throw it around unless they want a charge... Though there's kids that abuse everythingUsername is 3GS, but theres stuff past that:

I think that they should consider a cheaper Ereader. Plus I could see some kid saying that he/s lost the power cord and his/her iPad went dead so they couldn't do lastnight's homework. lol

For those who don't think this is a good idea with iPads in schools. Well think about this, put a book in front of a kid and put an iPad in front of a kid with the same book on the iPad, flip open the book then flip the first page with the iPad and let's see which one he chooses. My son has learned so much with the iPad. He is 5 years old and has learned all sorts of math, shapes, and he loves to read books. Not only can they read to you but help you to understand the word that is difficult to say. Now tell me what book out there can do that.

I have to say from a first-hand experience that an ipad is amazing for educational purposes. I use it everyday when i go to my programming classes. Not to mention that books are soooooo much cheaper for the ipad (if available).

lol this will never happen. Kids break stuff, cost, opens to many wrong doors and closes some that shouldn't

Georgia's rich biotch! (Honk, Honk)!
But seriously, that would be most excellent.
