Quote - iPad Changing Education

The thing is that, when you use an app on an iPad, the iPad becomes that thing. Maps makes the iPad a map. iBooks turns it into a book. Brushes turns it into a sketch pad. I feel that teachers aren’t looking for “new software that I can run on this computing device”, rather that they’re asking “can I make this iPad into something else useful for my teaching?”.

The iPad has already revolutionized education in this one school. It’s only a matter of time before the rest of the schools catch up.
