High School Swaps Out Textbooks For iPads

Kotaku writes: "When the students of St. Catherine's High School's new middle school program arrive next year, they'll be sporting shiny new iPads instead of textbooks, giving students plenty of games to play while they should be learning, until they get stolen.

It's a revolutionary idea, I suppose, but a very bad revolutionary idea."

The story is too old to be commented.

Middle School? Kids don't have enough respect for someone else property, these devices will be broken by half through the semester.
