Review finds problems in use of iPads at Meath school

An expert review of the use of iPads at one Co Meath school has identified a litany of problems associated with the manner and extent of their use.

Interesting and while it does makes sense in some way, it would be good to look at the volume of books that students are forced to carry in their school bags which can be very heavy and have a long damaging lasting effect on their spine as they grow.
Why aren't the ipads locked down? A very simple solution with no excuses. As for the comment of neck and back being sore from looking down, do they expect anything different from looking down at a book and carrying a bag full of heavy books?
