    As a graduate student (law, LLM - my name is a joke), a small group of us use iPads, exclusively. After battling the professor that wrote the books, we won a copyright dispute under the fair use clause. I use iAnnotate, which allows me to highlight the pertinent text, which then I export to an outline. It's only a short matter of time before our methods are the standard. While pricey, an iPad with a ScanSnap M1500 has changed my life. I scan & OCR books in minutes; unfortunately, the process destroys the books unless I rebind them. However, if you're capable of buying an iPad, scanner, and far too many apps - cost is unlikely to be an issue.

    What do I think of iPad at school? I'm all for it!

    I'm a high school teacher in Funchal, Madeira Island. I teach economy to underprivileged teenagers (15-19 y.o.) and, believe me, it's not easy to motivate those kids. They loved the iPad, though. The topic was technological innovations, so I decided to talk about the legacy of Steve Jobs and I showed them my new iPad. They tried several educational apps (e.g. Solar Walk, iTranslate) and lots of games: they loved Lane Splitter and Angry Birds but Temple Run didn't impress them much.

    My daughter's elementary school that she will be starting this fall is working on getting Ipads in for the Kindergartners on up! Being the techy freak that I am, this is why I chose this school. They are not afraid to move forward and embrace this quickly changing world.

    iPad is great for schools! It enables students to quickly research something thats being discussed without interrupting the flow of a lesson - it enables quick note taking and acts as several devices combined - a voice recorder, web browser, note pad, camera, language lab, video player, book reader etc etc

    I think the iPad would be an excellent device for school. There a lots of applications that are very helpful to students. Such as iBooks. There are also lots of math apps that are good for use too. I have troubles in school with math, and my principle had an iPad that she would call me over every thursday to her office and she would have me play a math app of her iPad to help with my learning. It was a adding subtracting and multiplying app. It helped excellently. I think our math tutors in our school should also use these apps to help kids with their math. I found these apps very helpful and I'm sure lots of other kids in the school will too.
    GarageBand is also a great app for music class. Our music teacher has an iMac that she uses for our class songs every year with GarageBand to record us singing and add the instruments to the songs to make them sound good. The music teacher said that she may have us bring in our iPads in to make our own songs with.

    iBooks is also an excellent app. There are lots of great books on iBooks. There's lots of good free books too. It would be an excellent reading app for children. It has a bookmark and you can just type in any page on the search if you lose your page.

    The younger grades in our school use iPads. I can remember what reasons, but they are obviously used for good use. So, I think the iPad would be an excellent device for schools everywhere.

    Very useful during classes where professors just teach like there's no tomorrow saying different things from their presentation. Many apps allow the user to record the lecture at the same time jot down notes. Surfing the web also becomes easy

    My only concern with the iPad as a learning device would be students losing literary skills. The information presented on an iPad comes quickly and I don't think it affords them the chance to really think about what it means and to make connections to other knowledge.
