Hi. I would be interested to hear views in the use of ipads in secondary school. My son started in 1st year in Sept and uses an ipad instead of books. He has no ebooks on it and instead uses documents created by teachers. I have no way of tracking the curriculum or how advanced he is in it. As far as I can see the school do little monitoring of their activity on the ipad and security is loose enough that games and social media sites can be downloaded. It is making my job as a parent very difficult as far as school work is concerned.
