K-State's Take: Educating with iPads

The KSU College of Education has just implemented a requirement for students admitted to the COE. Starting in 2014, it will be a requirement to have an iPad. Students may see this as a downfall, considering an iPad can be quite costly, but the idea is that it will save students a great deal of money on textbooks. Of course, there are many, many more reasons. In the classes I have taken just this semester, we have used technology A LOT. This includes using iPad apps. Luckily, the COE has its own library, The Catalyst, where you can "check out" an iPad for class, as well as several other technological products.
