I'm thrilled for all the students in LA who are getting iPads instead of textbooks. (Why do I get the feeling they will do this in North Carolina about the time Dave graduates high school?) Yell

That is very cool!!  I think our school district is like yours...we will get them by the time Dylan graduates!!!!  His tutor was using an ipad with him and doing math facts.....she said there are all kinds of educational apps.   I'm thinking of getting one now too.....I'm been thinking for a while...this just kinda pushed me over the edge.  I really think they would like doing practice stuff on it.....it makes it more fun!

I agree. Dave loves it when he occasionally gets to use the one at school!
