This article sounds like it's saying the iPad won't make any difference in education. "The appear of the iPad in the classroom isn't its potential for re-imagining pedagogy, regardless of how loudly, vigorously and often advocates proclaim it is." But then cracks begin to appear in that position. "The main campus humanities and social science teachers ended up telling us how they would view content on the iPad, the branch campus STEM teachers were able to tell us how they would manipulate the content." By the end, it is clear the iPad will change education, if you use it for that purpose. "The differences rest in the ability to do things with the iPad that you can't do easily or at all with other devices."
