Yes, you can use an iPad for assignmentsand hope many of you do.
It is impossible to only use freeapps, therefore, you will be will need to purchase a few Apps,but the majority I suggest using will be FREE apps. But hey,Apps are very cheap bycomparison and think about it,didn’t you have to buy softwarefor your computer, so in thescheme of things, Apps for youriPad are a bargain at 99¢ to lessthan $10.00 So, buying a few Apps should not be a big problem, especially if you really want to master your iPad anduse it productively as a teacher and in your classroom. Rightnow, in the state of Kansas, there are more schools using iPadsthan computers, even right here in Manhattan. In fact, it isapproaching over half the schools in Kansas that are 1:1 iPads.And 100’s more with mobile labs of them. I was in Dodge Cityon May 1 doing inservice and learned that they are going 1:1K thru 12. Wow!
