Advanced Placement students at California's Monte Vista Christian School are using iPads in the classroom as part of a pilot program that could lead to the high-tech devices replacing textbooks. One English teacher says his students can use the iPads to look up unfamiliar words as they are reading, and a science teacher showed her students how they can view displays of the human body. Students can type classroom notes on the iPad, and if they want to record a lecture, they can download the app SoundPaper.
