Exploring the use of iPads and mobile devices in education.
After completing an iPad trial with a year 10 Science class I came to the conclusion that while there are a number of reasonable subject specific apps (particularly for the primary school years), the greatest benefit of the iPad is in the management and organisation of educational life as a teacher or a student.
