There are as many opinions on the use of iPads within traditional educational settings as their are educational iPad apps.  However one writer at Time thinks iPads should stay OUT of the classroom, and not all schools are utilizing iPads effectively:

“An iPad is an amazing device for transmitting information, but what makes a difference in a student’s life is the information, not its mode of transmission. Appropriate content, provided at the right time in the student’s life, and in the right pedagogical context, is everything. Technology doesn’t guarantee any part of that. An iPad loaded with inane apps is just another boring textbook.”
