Apple's iPad enters Singapore classrooms

posted Jan 14, 2011, 4:54 AM by Jim Siegl
our schools in the wealthy city-state have begun handing out Apple iPads to students, relieving them of the need to carry satchels full of bulging text books and notes.

Nanyang Girls High School has spent S$135,000 (about $100,000) to buy 150 iPads for 140 students and 10 teachers in a pilot project. Users connect to the Internet using the tablet, and download books and course material.  Other schools in Singapore using the tablet include Tampines Secondary School (http://www.tpss.moe.edu.sg/cos/o.x?c=/wbn/pagetree&func=view&rid=50269), Nanhua Primary School and Dunman Secondary School.
