The Irish Times reports that a secondary school (high school) in Co Mayo, Ireland, is planning to replace all its textbooks with iPads. St Colemanâ€™s College in Claremorris, Co Mayo, made the decision after weeks of consultations with teachers, students and parents. The scheme will begin this September, when the schoolâ€™s 90 first year pupils will be given the choice to replace their textbooks with iPads. Iâ€™m guessing not many will say no!
According to the report, each iPad will be pre-loaded with a suite of learning apps, with the complete package costing a total of â‚¬700 ($1000) each, although the cost will apparently be spread over three years.
