The school system in my area recently announced they were purchasing a large number of iPads as part of a new education paradigm. iPads are wonderful, and no one loves them more than me, but I will admit they are more useful for education purposes when they are paired with a physical keyboard for faster, easier note-taking or typing up reports. When I have passed along an iPad to a niece or nephew, I’ve always included a Bluetooth keyboard. They are older and can quickly and easily set up the Bluetooth connection when needed. Our school system intends to use the iPads they are purchasing with younger kids, who may not be so adept at connecting a Bluetooth keyboard. I can foresee a lot of wasted classroom time, at least at first, with the teacher having to help everyone with their keyboards.
The Wired Keyboard for iPad from Logitech is designed to be plug-and-play, so the kids (or you) would only need to plug in a cable to be ready to start working. Logitech specially designed these keyboards for the classroom, so they are built to be durable and easy to maintain, with spill-resistant keys, no battery to recharge, and a 3-year limited hardware warranty. They are available with either the old 30-pin connector or with the new Lightning connector. You can pre-order either model now for $59.99.
