Physics Buzz: Can iPads Make a Difference in Physics Education?

It's great to see my colleague +Ben Van Dusen make progress with his research, partially because it means more opportunities for me to chide him for turning Apple fanboyism into a PhD. Of course my teasing and criticism is only in jest, except not really. Or not. Seriously, if you're considering tech for your school, don't just fall for the marketing and make sure whatever tech you buy is accompanied by a plan for using it and resources to help teachers make the most of it. (And if using it requires having an iTunes account, then think about buying something else.)
