"Students can now utilize this tool in my classroom and at home to fully incorporate it into their learning…They can annotate the lesson in a program like Notability or Topnotes, taking the teacher notes and media and making it more personal and relevant to them.” Ramstedt is also enthusiastic about the potential of the iPad in creating a paper-free classroom. He indicated that students could “use a flashcard app to study for assessments, which is not only an effective way to study, but guarantees they will not lose flashcards they took so long creating. We use the BrainPop App to introduce new ideas and content, and students can take practice quizzes to measure their understanding with the results being emailed to me so I can chart their progress. Finally, with the use of Google Drive, Google Docs, and Google Sheets, I can provide students digital access to class materials, and they can submit work to me through sharing their files.”"

"I don't know enough about the law to know whether that would be a violation of a constitutional right," he said. "It would probably make the process a little more plain, so that when we do work with law enforcement, we would be able to, in a situation, let them know that we have X number of carriers. That might be the middle ground on both sides of the issue."
