USA Today: Adapting to the iPad, called education's 'equalizer'

Between the approximately 40.000 educational apps for the iPad and its touch-screen, schools are hailing the iPad as the educational equalizer. USA Today detailed the benefits of the tablet in an article Sept. 14,  read the full article here. 

The article said, "The tablets are growing in popularity for special-needs students because they can be customized to each child's needs, are lightweight and mobile, and give the kids the sense they're plugged into a larger, high-tech community, educators and parents say."
