I use the iPads quite a bit with primary grades, but really only for enrichment in the form of TeachMe 1st grade and other literacy apps. However, I have been leaning towards rolling out the chromebooks because they offer a physical keyboard and more web access. I think the ability for kids to be able to type and interact with a keyboard and touchpad is very important. If it were up to me I think I'd go 1:2 or more at this point so that learning stations could still be implemented and a single teacher or para could have a smaller group to work with at any given time.

Wise list folks:

Looking for thoughts on which is prefereable: 1 to 1 with Chromebooks for 1st graders or 5-6 IPads for a learning station in a classroom.  Which would you go with and why?
