    The Irish Times reports that a secondary school (high school) in Co Mayo, Ireland, is planning to replace all its textbooks with iPads. St Coleman’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 school’s 90 first year pupils will be given the choice to replace their textbooks with iPads. I’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 €700 ($1000) each, although the cost will apparently be spread over three years.

      True but they will some how add software to block sites.
