Exploring the use of iPads and mobile devices in education.
"Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire."
--William Butler Yeats
"A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank...but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child."
-- Forest Witcraft
"It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education ... If we are to develop our students' sense of curiosity, we must be mindful to carve out time to allow our students to inquire and explore." -- Albert Einstein
