Here’s how the iPad is making teachers more tech-savvy at one British school | TabTimes.

A very interesting article.

I was given some interesting figures recently. Although these are restaurant napkin calculations, so don’t take them as absolutely accurate… Apparently, to equip all late stage primary and secondary pupils and their teachers in Scotland with iPads could cost in the order of £ £25 Million a year (including servicing and upgrades).  I suppose the question has to be asked about effective use of resources. Spending on current ICT projects including Glow vs state 1:1 provision.

Might this be a debate we should be having?
