Apple Ipads Available for Bulk Purchase

This article talks about the Ipads that are being sold in India. In India they are selling Ipads for a cheaper price. The only catch is that you have to buy the Ipads in bulk. This would be able to provide Ipads to buisnesses or schools for a cheaper price. I think this would be a great way to get Ipads for our school. They are only sold in bulk which is great because every student will need one. The Ipads are also cheaper which benefits the students who pay for them.

Assign-A-Day

Assign-A-Day is a great tool teachers can use to benefit students. It is an online calendar teachers can create. On this calendar teachers can post assignments and days of tests/quizzes. This can help students view assignments that they may have missed. It can also help students who were absent. This calendar allows them to view assignments due on the days they were out of school. Lastly, it can benefit students because they can see the days that tests will be given so they will have ample time to study for them instead of doing it last minute. Assign-A-Day calendar would be very helpful if all teachers used it. I think this should be required for teachers to use. If this calendar was used in all schools, I think that students would do better in school because this allows them to be more organized and it informs them on what assignments they have to do.
