This video gives just a few examples of why iPads are not sufficient for education. In this video, I sample just a small number of websites that are useful for project-based and problem-based learning in the common-core (and often free) but CANNOT be used by iPads because a great many of these educational websites require web plugins like Flash, Shockwave, Java, or Unity. Android tablets CAN access websites that run Flash, and ALL of these websites can be accessed on desktop or laptop (or netbook/ultrabook) computers running Windows or Mac OS.
