I'm meeting with the director of special services on Monday to discuss the possibility of purchasing iPads for our elementary school. They would primarily be for collaborative/inclusion classrooms, but available for anyone to use. I don't have one (yet!) but I've read so much about the benefits of the iPad for both spec and gen ed students. I was hoping to get some feedback - positives/negatives, experiences with elementary students, notable apps, etc. Any comments are welcome! Many thanks.

Hello Julie!
I have been putting together app lists for education: http://www.alline.org/euro/preschool_apps.html
Try also kindergarten.com and its ABA Flash Cards

You should also try getting in contact with Camilla Gagliolo (gaglioloc@me.com), she has been very successful in implementing iPads and documentation, she just did a webinar for ISTE on iPads.
Good luck!
Sorry Melissa... I was copying one of my previous posts for you on my iPhone and the text got all messed up. Here it is again...
