Pros and Cons of the iPad in Education

on May 6, 2010

Will the iPad finally enable all students to have a computer? It looks like it is going to speed up up Web 3.0 or cloud computing.

Mark Crump writes his pros and cons of the iPad in education.

Pros:
Better battery life
Light weight
No more backpacks carrying books etc.
Wifi enables user to work anywhere
Single task, only one window open at a time right now – better concentration

Cons:
Lack of e-textbooks – this will improve
No camera
No citation/equation support
Only Apple apps
No full size keyboard

Look at all of this to improve in the near future. The iPad will change education.
