iPads Can Survive Fall

After the tragic fall and destruction of one our 13 iPads earlier this week, I’ve been very protective of the remaining 12. But yesterday I got confirmation of something I don’t ever want to see again. Another iPad fell. A student had her headphones connected to the iPad, she got up (forgetting the head phones were still attached), and the iPad fell. I saw it. So an iPad can withstand a fall onto a carpeted floor and take no damage. Whew! The force was all spread out keeping the touchscreen unharmed.

Let’s not try that experiment again!
