Jill and Glen:
When we all DO get our iPads, I just found a site contains reviews of iapps for igadgets: http://www.iear.org/. There are also links to some of the resources for apps used in different schools and districts. This could be a valuable resource for IPod and iPad integration. Others have probably already found this, but I just stumbled across it.
I so would enjoy putting an iPad to the test! Thanks for the link to the iPad apps - it is awesome how people are coming together to provide apps that will encourage individuals opportunities to learn and share ideas. I have not ordered an iPad - and do not expect I will for several months. I'll have to await results of iPad testing from Jill, you, and others who have that opportunity.
Who has started playing with an iPad? Are they everything you expected? What would you like added to it? What app do you think will most benefit education?
I'm also thinking this is going to become a very valuable tool, inside and outside the classroom: http://piratepad.net/gLztzWR5OQ
