School Of Commerce In Belgium Requires Students To Have iPad

We’ve seen some schools which use iPads to help out students, but a measure taken by a Belgian school of commerce tops that easily. The Sint-Jozef school from Blankenberge is forcing all 710 students to turn up with an iPad when term starts again on September 3 in order to continue taking classes, RTBF reports.

The school doesn’t require any textbooks however, and the curriculum is entirely based around Apple’s tablet, making for much lighter rucksacks and much less paper.

However this move is understandably fairly controversial, with many parents and students worried about the high cost. The school has put a rental system in place for those who can’t pay up front for $150 per school year – after three years of renting, the student gets to keep the iPad.

It’s certainly radical, and will definitely force students to go digital, and I think that can only be a good thing. It might hurt short term but long term it will be beneficial, and not having to carry around heavy schoolbooks also makes things incredibly easier.
