  • Tablets as textbooks for students

    Textbooks existed forever because the technology to replace them did not exist up until the time Apple invented iPad. Text books get out dated by the time they get printed. Then, by the time they get distributed to schools, they are more than outdated and less than useful. eBooks are cost-effective and cheaper compared to textbooks - even if we consider the initial cost of investment in a tablet. Many schools across the country (TN, GA, NJ, IL, etc) are replacing textbooks with iPads - good for students, good for teachers, good for parents, good for schools and good for counties. Just because our older generation did not have this technology during the time we got educated does not mean it is not the right thing for the current generation to grow up with and use it as an educational tool. Would you say the same thing about having a computer that our grand parents did not have? Using textbooks in these modern times is analogous to using accounting books instead of computers with a program to do bookkeeping and using paper-maps while driving instead of a GPS or rather a smartphone with a maps app.

    There are many wonderful educational apps to sharpen and educate children of all ages - rapidly - on iPad. The best part - children love these tablets and apps that improve their cognitive skills (as opposed to hating the heavy text books and lugging them around) and use them without any training like they knew them forever! App-sharing feature of iOS facilitates sharing apps purchased by a parent or a family member with up to 6 other members.

    And so, feel free and just embrace the newer technology - you'll be glad you did.
