The iPad is all the rage at a private school in Knoxville, TN, where all students from fourth to 12th grade will now be required to carry iPads starting this August. Hey, it beats a backpack full of spine twisting books. The students can either provide their own tablet or lease a WiFi-only model for $20 a month.
Webb School hopes that the iPad will eventually replace traditional textbooks. We aren’t sure how effective an iPad only classroom can be, but I guess we will all find out soon enough.
