Apple touts educational uses for new iPad Mini - courtesy of ASCD Smartbrief


Apple on Tuesday unveiled its new iPad Mini, in part, by pointing out its benefits for classroom instruction. The devices cost $329 for a Wi-Fi-enabled tablet -- less than earlier versions of the iPad, which have been popular among schools and are considered the "gold standard" among some educators. On Twitter, however, reaction to the iPad Mini was mixed, with one user posting that the smaller devices do not meet requirements for assessments under the Common Core State Standards.
