I imagine this study isn't worth the paper it isn't written on, but Apple is reporting on a study that says students using the iPad to learn obtain increased test scores. "Publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced the results of its 'HMC Fuse: Algebra I' pilot program at Ameila Earhart Middle School in California's Riverside Unified School District... In its test run, the 'HMH Fuse' application helped more than 78 percent of students score 'Proficient' or 'Advanced' on the spring 2011 California Standards Test. That was significantly higher than the 59 percent of peers who used traditional textbooks." Here's the white paper (which I'm quite sure would never have seen the light of day had the results been different).
