Here’s a question is having the ipad 2 in kindergarten a good idea?

Well, a school districe in Maine approved a $200,000 initiative that would give each of its 285 kindergarten students a new hands-on tool: Their very own ipad 2. Their calling this a ” revolution in education”. Now I remember when I was in Kindergarten we didn’t get anything like the ipad 2. All we had were computers that are now out of date.(I was in kindergarten in the late 90’s)

This isn’t the first time that Maine became an early tech adoter. In 2002, Maine was the first state to give out laptops to middle school students and later high school students as a part of a move to boost literacy.

Now please read more and please comment on my post.
