Please, PLEASE do not vote to put i pads, i pods, or any other  technology in the hands of students until after you have placed an outstanding teacher in their hands and lowered class sizes. Don't you remember that Utah spends less per child than any other state? If we have extra money, please spend it where it will do the most good.
Technology won't fill the gap. Please see this:
