The iPad (and Kindle) Goes to College

For those of you with kids either in college or entering college this Fall here is an article about adoption of the iPad on college campuses. The article describes how Oklahoma State and Illinois Institute of Technology are evaluating and integrating the devices into the curriculum. Similar treatment was given the the Kindle last year, the results of which are included in the article. Two trends to watch here. The first and most obvious is will these devices replace textbooks. Second, can these devices be used to drive greater learning amongst students in academics. In other words can these devices go from static book replacements to devices that enhance collaborative learning.

Read the article.
