Schools Using iPad as Teaching Tool
Apple is selling lots of iPads to school systems around the U.S. School systems including San Diego and Redondo Beach have funding initiatives for this effort. The iPad is a fabulous tool for teachers to use as a curriculum tool for their students.
WiFi only iPad 2's are only $399 while the iPad 3 is priced at $499. "The iPad price cut unlocked some education demand for customers who had a bit more price sensitivity," said Tim Cook on the earning conference call today. At this price iPads could last for a long time in schools if properly cared for. It makes sense for school systems to purchase these devices for all students in the classroom.
