Today I was thinking about iPads and how many of our students work solely from this device. Then I got to thinking about this blog and how ironic it was that I was writing about the iPad on a platform that does not support mobile viewing.
Then I thought about a conversation I had with Mr. French Teacher, who uses wordpress for his personal blog and was nice enough to give me a quick tour. And lo and behold! WordPress has a nice ipad viewer as well as a view for smartphones. And the cost is the same as blogger: free!
