My desire for an iPad

I’ve been thinking about getting an iPad to help me with study and teaching in the future, or at least that’s what I’ve telling myself. So, do I really need one?

Some of my reasons for wanting an iPad are:

  • there are many different apps I can use for educational purposes in my classroom?
  • if the iPad has 3G (which if I get one that’s what I want) I will be able to connect to the internet away from a wifi source on a device with a decent size screen.
  • there is the new ACARA app that would be very helpful while planning in a classroom (Alison Jackson blogged about this)

This website gives some uses of an iPad in the classroom. This website also went a long way to almost convincing me.

So my last question to myself is: Will it be a distraction? The answer? Most probably.
