A tech website has an article explaining all of the wonderful things that tablet computers can do in schools here.
hate to be so radical, but what schools really need is a curriculum that makes
the development of a love and habit of reading a priority. Literacy

avid readers develop sophisticated literacy skills. You can't short-cut
it by giving the kids little reading games on tablet computers. Take some
of this money going to technology and flood the schools with books that kids
can easily love. Or even e-books. E-books will work fine.
You don't need fancy software. Put a kindle and nook app on each
tablet computer, give the kids an account online so they can download books of
their choice and make in-school reading part of the every school day.
Watch scores soar. THEN start focusing on technology education.
