    Well, it's not as simple as that . . . .
    The flexibility and wide range of available apps enables the iPad to ably support creative use, however the level of creativity endeavoured or achieved is primarily in the hands of the user. On several occasions it has been stated that "We are not looking at iPads because they are not good for lengthy typing" - I would argue strongly that "lengthy typing" is not a feature of good educational practice. If all schools are doing with technology is replacing pen and paper with a word processor and a keyboard they have really missed the point. Some others dwell on what an iPad can't do rather than celebrate the new things it can do. These are all errors in teacher understanding of the role of technology in schools.
    Creative i pad use from Kelgator
    "Traditional" computer software often required extensive operational knowledge to support creativity. What the iPad does well, through its intuitive operational process, is take out the mechanics of the task and allow the user to be more engaged with the learning process than with the technology. There are many wonderfully creative constructive Apps that inspire and support users to move beyond text based production and incorporate engaging multimedia components into their work. iPads have the potential to be wonderfully versatile creative devices, but they can only achieve that within a creative classroom. Our role as educators is to create a learning environment that empowers our students with the scope to build deep knowledge and understanding through creative engagement. That does not come from merely word processing.
    An interesting article in Time Tech explores the notion that with creation devices it is all about context, explore the functionality and not the physical components.
