Is the iPad ready to replace texbooks, paper and pencils?

With the new school year just around the corner, it’s time for back-to-school shopping. But some students won’t be picking up the standard paper and pencils to put in their backpacks this year. Instead, they’ll be bringing their iPad.

Is the iPad really worthy of replacing the time-tested pencil and paper in the classroom?

Many schools throughout the country are starting to think so and are embracing the iPad as the latest educational tool. According to The New York Times, Roslyn High School in Long Island, New York, gave out 47 new iPads this past school year. The district is hoping to supply all of their students with iPads for them to use during the year, not only for textbooks, but also to keep in contact with their teachers and submit their homework assignments. Instructors are also using them to keep a digital portfolio of each student’s work.
