Amy Rose The Hedgehog said: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.
It's nice to hear your perspective of using an iPad as a student in your school, Amy. Nice job!
