Apple in Education Week at Cult of Mac

Cult of Mac ran a series this week looking at the revival of Apple products in education. I recommend you at least read the following:

  1. It’s All About Mobility –  check out the graph at the end showing the decline of Dell and the rise of Apple.
  2. iPads Get Top Grades In Cedars School Pilot Project – overview of the iPad pilot launched by Fraser Speirs.
  3. The Best iOS Apps for Education
  4. iPad May Replace Computers and Textbooks In Schools, Expert Predicts – it is great for reading but also can do writing.

And for a more cynical look at computers in education, read this interview with pioneering computer scientist Alan Kay.
