Using iPads in classrooms boosts student productivity, suggests study

I don't think using a ipad during school will help them with their studies much better than with pen and paper. Sure it is more fun, but on the other hand playing angry birds in the classroom won't give them better scores...

The ipad in schools will help better their learning and progress now with the playing of angry birds thats on the individual students work ethic and attention span in class but I have watched first hand how my cousins grades have greatly improved when her school introduced using kindles and iPads.

Yes, only iPad can do this, it's an extraordinary device, omnipotent and very useful no matter what the subject is. Of course, computers and laptops didn't exist before iPad, so poor students didn't have this much needed gadgets, and thank you God allmighty for giving us iPad because there is no other tablet on the market that could do the same job.

In my opinion, i think having an iPad would bring significant influence on how a student fare in classes.. Still it'll depend on how the student make use of a potential device to his/her advantage to get higher grades.. Obviously, an iPad will not make you pass in class unless you work and study harder.. It's just like this:
"even if you give him tiger wood's club, a golfer with poor practice and tarining will always be a lousy golfer and will not guarantee him a pga cup.."

Haters are here to stay they kinda add spice to an already spicy artcle, which make it more interesting. . . ;-)

The article is titled Using iPads in classrooms boosts student productivity, suggests study but then the first paragraph uses the term TABLETS. First off it is irresponsible journalism and non objective. Secondly as probably the most costly tablet with the educational system cutting spending left and right wouldn't a more affordable tablet make a better choice.
But again like the crackmanor big tobacco...get em started early.....make em isheep before they can even choose a different path.

It's not irresponsible journalism because they ARE using iPads. And the iPad isn't the most expensive tablet on the market. In fact other tablet makers have been forced to drop their price to compete with Apple.
Their sheep for using iPad's to study? Are you really this pathetic? Believe it or not most people want a product that works which is the iPad. Doesn't make you a sheep. Apple has 85% of the tablet market right now so who else would the educational system go with?
