One of the things that I hated most about college was the ton of heavy books I have to carry around campus. When colleges started talking about using eReaders like the Kindle, I thought that was really cool.

Oklahoma State University has announced that it intends to pilot a program in the fall 2010 year that will use the iPad in the classroom for students in the School of Media and Strategic Communications and the Spears School of Business at the Stillwater and Tulsa campuses. The pilot will use 125 students in five different courses.

The students will get a discount on the iPad of over $100 and the iPad will be evaluated for its impact on the coursework and the curriculum. The school says it will be evaluating the use of the iPad for education on different measurable outcomes.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
