iPads: iTunesU App, iBooks Textbooks -- Oh, my!

There is a lot of buzz about iPads in education. 

I'm convinced that tablet technology will be adopted by schools at a faster rate than anticipated a year or so ago, now that Apple has launched iBooks Textbooks for iPad and the iTunesU app.

Parents, teachers, students, administrators, and school IT specialists, hold on to your hats!

I have been planning on devoting more posts in the future about the iPad and related interactive technologies for learning- and for fun.  When I have a chance to write my mega-post, you won't be disappointed!
