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.
