Follow up to "Tablet Time"

So, my "epic" post on how tablets like the iPad integrate into a typical K12 school environment generated a ton of discussion from colleagues in person and via email. Unfortunately, it didn't result in comments on this blog (come on guys)!

I wanted to follow up with some links that validate some of the points in the posting. I also wanted to be clear that I am not "anti-tablet" or iPad. I feel like there are some valid use cases right now for this type of device. What I am encouraging is thoughtful discussion and careful planning. These two links should help with both :)
