A report into the mandatory use of iPads in a County Meath school has found that students are frequently distracted by the devices

The new educational fad
Of giving each child an iPad
Can lead to distraction
And thus the reaction
From boffins who say that it’s bad

    Friends loathed these when schools told them their kids had to study on them. ‘Out of charge’ became the new excuse for evading homework.

      i always found it weird that on the one hand you have everyone saying that screen time should be limited to an hour or so a day for teenagers but then they are made to their school and homework on them?

    as someone with eye issues this would seriously have aggravated them, it took one year of intense screen time to drop from -8.5 to -10,
    surly there is a health issue

    Why is it always ipads that schools recommend? Why can’t they just recommend generic android tablets that you can pick up for about 80 quid?
