Isn’t she Beautiful?   1 comment

 

White or Black?

 

Ok, ipad2 is coming 3-11-11!!  She sure is beautiful!!  Yesterday Steve Jobs came out and spoke at a kickoff media event extravaganza!  Twitter land was swarmed with #apple and all my Twitter friends were a buzz.  As a user of the original ipad (thanks to my fabulous job & district) I couldn’t help but think how cool the new ipad2 will be because of its new capabilities.  Furthermore, as a father of a 4 1/2 yr old and an 8 month old I was thinking how the ipad has already affected my home and watching my young son navigate it like “it ain’t no thang but a chicken wing” I am constantly torn with the idea of what the future holds for kids in school with technology and particularly my young children.

I wonder what would happen if my Twitter friend @Matt_Gomez down in Texas was given a class set of ipad2’s to use with his Kindergarten students?  How awesome would that be?  All I can say is I would want my son in his class come next year when he starts Kindergarten.  I guarantee you @Matt_Gomez would move mountains if given the keys!  Can you imagine?

So perhaps the question “Isn’t she Beautiful?” should really be “Should I get White or Black?”.
