I was a very interested spectator when my daughter started school recently and I how much things had moved on since I was a student. Whatever the difference between schooling from my parents age and when I was young has been doubled now for when my daughter is in class. This change has been brought about due to the rapid rise of new technologies that have been rapidly adopted by schools in both the private and public sector.
More than a toy the iPad is a true technological marvel. Let me first put you into context. You have to know that this comment is coming from a man of a certain age, for whom his very first computer was an Apple Macintosh 512k, with an external 800k floppy drive. I bought it during my last year in university, just before graduating (I won’t tell you what I paid for it). So I have always been a big fan of Apple products.
