LA Schools seek refund from Apple and Pearson for botched IPAD plan and implementation.

Sad. I figured the ¬†primary issue would have been electrical infrastructure, but they didn’t mention that. Lifely as Ipad’s don’t use much electricity. My local school district also got IPADs. My 9 yo son has one. I don’t know how that is going for them.

Curriculum was the major issues with lack of completely integrated curriculum and testing as well as not including multi lingual capabilities. There are lots of folks in the LA area that don’t speak English, at least initially.

I suspect that Tablet usage should begin in Middle School  or High School.
