What benefits do you see from using iPad?
Not having to carry around a textbook, better communication amongst the team, shared information
It's very convenient to carry around plus it makes you look tech savy
I think staying up to date on the most current technology is extremely important in this fast paced world.
If more classes adopted the ability to use this i probably wouldn't be carrying a backpack at all.
It is obviously helping avoid unnecessary paper waste, but it also opens up a lot of possible collaboration that didn't exist with the normal textbook set up. That is assuming that the software continues to progress at a rapid pace.
Instant information at your fingertips.
I am more organized and my backpack is certainly lighter since I dont need to carry my laptop and cord everywhere. I also LOVE the long battery life.
I carry it in my backpack instead of a heavy backpack and it is easy and fast to surf the net.
I have a PC so using the iPad has helped me get used to Macs more.
