Tablet for a teacher???
      10/09/12 11:50 AM

I am a teacher and I plan to write a grant to apply for a tablet. Mostly I would be the one using it but would like to be able to let the kids use it for reading and some web applications. My wish list is:

1. Stylus. My main reason for wanting the tablet is to take notes especially on PDF files (keep notes on manuals, student reading assessments etc) Preferably one that doesn't freak out when I touch my hand to the screen at the same time. I know the Samsung note has this but you an only use it in limited Samsung applications. I want to download a PDF editor app and save to Dropbox or Evernote?

2. Expandable storage. I hate that my iPad has an "it what it is" mentally when it comes to storage among other things.

3. Wifi only is all I would need.

4. Under $500. I can't sound greedy or ill have no chance of getting it. Will need to add some to the price for apps, sd card, stylus etc.

5. Must play flash! Probably my biggest gripe with apple. I can't get photon to work for the education sites I need.

6. Any size >=7 inches is fine.

7. At least simple editing of Microsoft documents. I would ideally like to bring it home and edit things I need there instead of lugging a laptop. (We don't have a home computer yet to use my google or Dropbox cloud storage in that way. Long story)

Thanks for your help in advance!!
