Dutch to Open 11 iPad-Only Schools for entire education experience

If we had this when I was in school I would have paid attention.

This August, 11 so-called “Steve Jobs schools” will open in the Netherlands, serving 1,000 students primarily through educational apps on Apple’s iPad, replacing everything from books to blackboards.

A so-called ‘Steve Jobs school’ will use Apple’s iPad to focus on three core skills: arithmetic, reading, and text comprehension.
