Technology in the classroom is becoming more and more common. I believe if schools have enough money to pay for them iPads would be very beneficial in the classroom both for the student and the teacher. iPads have many different apps that can help students grasp the understanding of science. Whether it is an app for flashcards to help study, a periodic table, or a unit converter; the iPad has the app. By the time I am teaching in a classroom, textbooks will probably be available on an iPad and that would make students happier to take the book home and bring it back to school because they won’t have backpacks weighing twenty pounds. For me personally, everything that makes the student want to learn makes things easier on me. Students are more intrigued if they get to use something other than a pen and paper. The iPad would be a great addition to every classroom!
