Should Kids Be Using iPads In School ?

There are these 3 + graders in my school and they have iPads . But the thing is , they already ruined them by spilling water on them .

I honestly think that they are too young to be learning from technology . I think they should be learning manually , just like their parents did .

What do you think ?

Yes!

'Books and pencils and stuff' are going to waste more resources than hunks of silicon. iPads aren't actually that expensive to produce. Apple's just full of dicks. Chances are, schools could get their hooks into them for fairly lower prices. There's no reason to not allow our children to embrace our future anyways. Technology is the backbone of our modern society and culture, and looking away from it is a shameful, backwards practice. Sure it's fine if you do it yourself, but getting angry because kids get to play with iPads is kind of... childish.

So. There's that. Sittin' there. For you.

Ipad can save money and the trees! So many trees are bring cut off and yet no one is trying hard to safe them. With the help of ipad, i believe, the world will be a better place for all living beings. And we can also say bye to global warming! So hot around here...

students will experience the most amazing ipad according to steve jobs. Students can flip through a book by sliding their finger along thumbnail images of the pages. If they don’t know the definition of a word, just one tap takes them to a glossary or dictionary! See how good an ipad is for a student? I truly support "Yes!"

iPads will have a handful of information and also will come in handy when you need to check the dictionary.

It is not mandatory, but I think they should, provided that it is being use for purpose of educational mediums. According to Mel Smith of http://www.kekacase.com/designer-cases/mel-smith.html , a kindle case designer said that it is good if kids are well accompanied by adult from using the ipad.

My school recently got Ipads for the sixth and first graders. I am very angry with the school right now, not even for sharing with us at least, beut giving them to 1st graders! That is crazy! You fools! But we also could've used the money to buy things the school really needs. Plus the 1st graders can't learn to write, WITH THEIR FINGER! So that's how I feel about that... :D

It is proved that children, especially children are mostly using iPad NOT for understanding the education but for wasting the time. When the children are allowed to use IT (iPads) they do not focus on the teacher but on games. Therefore the children who are bored but forced to sit and listen to the teacher learn more than children who are fully focused on unimportant things. Mind that children usually do not what they are told. So iPad should not be allowed

I don't think they should be using Ipads in school because school is for learning. We are trying for kids to get prepared for the future so that when they work they will learn to read, write, able to do mathematics and a lot of other subjects they can learn. You can use your Ipad at home.

I personally agree that Children under the age of 14 should use Ipads for school. Once you get to your senior years i see how it might help ease your workload. But definatly not when you are young.

no children should not be allowed using ipads in school school is the temple of knowledge all the children go there to study n to built their future the students can use ipads in home also as they only spend 6hours in the school so its not necessary to take ipads in the school.shool is the temple of knowledge not a temple of games if they bring ipads in the school they are fully distracted in their studies their mind will always be in ipads

It would not help with iPads with children because it is a waste of money and battery for wifi.
