I broke down and got an iPad, mainly based on the advice of Bill Caraher. I have to admit to not being an Apple fan – I have never had a Mac and use a Zune instead of an iPod. I had my iPad for about a week and have really enjoyed it. My goals for getting the device are:
- Better organize my calendar/appointments/email/etc.
- Do a better job of organizing my notes and research items
- Find a way to use the iPad in the classroom
I have spent a lot of time reading about how to use the iPad and the best apps for it, now is the time to see if I can translate it into success.
