I'm not sure what compatibility issues you are talking about. I have no problem with compatibility with normal computers (I assume by normal you mean windows, but that another argument) Every app I've installed on my ipad has worked fine so no compatibility with programs And I use my iPad on many wifi networks so don't see an issue there. I think the idea of a computing device issued to all pupils is a great idea although it's something that needs a lot of thought and planning. Ipad's are a great option as they are an easily controllable, standardised system with few issues relating to viruses and malware. Compared to the issues that come with with low quality under power netbooks they are a much better option. They are however a much more visible target for theft and even though stronger and more durable than cheap netbooks can still be broken by a child who has no respect for the cost of the device.
