The iPad and Higher Education

Below is a link to an interesting article on ProfHacker by David Parry, a professor of emerging media and communications at the University of Texas, Dallas.  Although the article is mainly concerned with reason why the iPad may not be good for education, it contains some real wisdom about the use of technology in education generally.

What education really needs is tech savvy teachers, engaged with
helping students develop 21st century literacies, not disciplined and
controlled digital experiences.
