Hello Teachers!! I am BRAND new this forum and joined to ask this question!! PLEASE help me and give me all your advice and opinions!! I just graduated from college (NY) in December. I am going to a job fair out of state soon since there are 0 jobs in NY!! I am questioning whether I should get a laptop (Mac book air) or iPad with a keyboard and mouse. All of you have experience and I want to know what works best for you and why. I love the idea of how thin the iPad is and it's versatility. If I bought a keyboard and mouse it would basically be a laptop. I saw that there are TONS of great apps for the iPad in education at the app store. I am not that fabulous at technology and would need laptop or iPad for basics. Lesson planning, presentations, the usual. I am leaning toward an iPad because it seems to be able to do all that I need it to do. Some say that a laptop is a must though. What do you think and WHY?? Thank you!!
