iPads in schools: a missed opportunity (?)

Here’s an interesting piece discussing the use of iPads in schools, and the (thus far) missed opportunity for Apple to really push iPads into the education market.

The premise is interesting: Apple should be offering educational bundles…keyboard docks, cases, app store credits toward educational apps or textbooks, etc., in an effort to maximize sales to students. In general I think this is a good idea, though obviously the more ‘stuff’ you put around an iPad, the more like a laptop it becomes. That’s not a bad thing in general however, and once hooked as students people are likely iPad users for years to come.

The article also links to this blog. Thanks guys :)
