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.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
