Apple’s Educational Revolution is Unaffordable

What Apple has been showing off lately can actually be the future of education, if you can afford it that is. This could be a future that we all have been imagining from ages & that we all have seen in some Sci-Fi movies too. It could totally change the way we teach, we learn or we study.

But let’s be realistic, in the world we live in today only a few of us can afford this revolutionary education.

We don’t know where to start from but let’s think of it as fifteen bucks is an amazing price for an interactive notebook such as this one which can easily replace our daily textbooks because of the features that Apple introduced such as instant flash cards which are an improvement over the current highlighters and Post-Its. These are quite some improvements for our current education system but then again, only a few of us can afford this.

As far as iPads are concerned, they are secondary devices to be used by people who earn high enough to splash their money on such gadgets, these people use iPad for watching Youtube videos or playing games like Angry Birds or Fruit Ninja. We can consider iBook one cheap textbook but at the same time we have to admit that iPad is one expensive backpack.

To sum it all up we can say that the revolution that Apple wants to bring is the best kind of progress, a paradigm shift in education but we should not expect it to change the face of education as it would be very difficult to implement Apple’s iBook in Europe & USA let alone developing countries like Pakistan
