2010: iPad.

Marketplace Contributor May 14, 2014

A digital version of the school slate. And one of the  biggest threat to teachers and textbooks, the education world had ever seen. The iPad didn’t just change the classroom, it has changed the economics of the classroom, and launched a mad dash into schools by technology companies.  

It remains to be seen whether or not the iPad will deliver the kind of educational revolution once expected to happen from radio, television and the personal computer.  

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
