  • I recently came across an interesting blog by an instructional technology person.  The following are his 5 essential tips to help integrate ipads into your school
  • The Huffington Post recently had an article on The Rise of Tablets As Textbooks.  This is an interesting article because it really focuses on the challenges, and even a bit of the negative side that is the reality when switching from textbooks to tablets.
