It is impossible for them to learn and gain knowledge through iPads. Another teacher commented that it was a disaster. If the kids know to use iPads in right way, it remains valuable. But if they use as a toy or somewhat equal to gadget, then it does not constitute educational importance.

Apple has told that it want students to use its device iPad. Due to this fact, Apple has updated the software and made it compatible and useful to students. A new classroom application is designed for teacher. It helps teachers to guide lessons for students.
