In October 2011 I am going to the US on holidays. I will b around the LA / San Diego area and am hoping to visit some schools or other institutions using iPads there. Does anyone have any tips or contacts in those areas they care to share?

My students are young adults/ adults who have become disengaged from education. I noticed how at ease they are with smart phones and the amount of time they spend using them. Since engagement is a real issue, we figure using devices and interfaces they love and are used to could be the way to engage them in the literacy and numeracy they try so hard to avoid. We have a trial commencing in Jan 2011 with 25 ipads. Can't wait to see how they respond to them!
