Today's Newsletter: iPad Blowback?

Today's Newsletter: iPad Blowback?

T&L editors occasionally like to take the temperature of various school device adoption trends through a decidedly unscientific method called “Googling it.” This week we decided to go back to one of the originals. iPad adoption still seems to be going gangbusters through district approvals across the country including Marchfield, WI, Fishers, IN, and Hibbing, MN. But we noticed a few not-so-positive stories on districts pulling back on the tablet that started it all. Some parents in Petaluma, CA are worried the iPad is a “portal to porn.” In Corvallis, OR, parents think the monies could be better spent elsewhere. One more example, and I think we can call this a trend—maybe the LA Unified effect? —Kevin Hogan, Content Director
