I am curious about the Kindle issue in schools. I own one and I am a big fan of the little device after only a few months. but it does a very niche job, and I am perplexed by the idea of them being used in school to replace paper copies of books. Just because a technology is there doesn't mean its any use for education. Take the iPad, please can someone state some good reasons why the heck they have a place in the classroom (other than consuming media output, videos etc).?
