There are many tablet devices on the market today and it is important to make the distinction between hardware manufacturers, software developers and education support providers. One of the main reasons that we believe the iPad is the way to go is because Apple is all three of these. Apple is dedicated to supporting education, providing professional development to teachers and technical support to schools. The App store is also host to thousands of reviewed educational applications. Schools around the world are using the iPad as a way for students to not only access information, but also to capture their thinking. With the iPad, students are able to make movies, podcasts, comic strips and animations to share their learning. They can also plan, brainstorm, collaborate, problem solve and create their own books and content.
