We must pause today and remember all those New Yorkers who perished just 11 years ago in a senseless attack on our City. And thank our Bravest and Finest for their courageous work that day and since keeping us all safe.

The iPad has become a revolutionary device globally and is changing the way we do business, manage our personal affairs and spend our leisure time. It has the potential -- if implemented wisely and effectively -- to transform teaching and learning and become an important tool in curing our city's educational ills. We must first train teachers and get their buy-in that iPads can make their work more efficient and inspirational. This should be easy with the proper training but we must first overcome one hurdle: teachers and their unions sometimes see technology as their enemy -- a way to decrease the need for a teacher in the classroom. Nothing could be further from the truth. A well-trained math or science or even English teacher can learn to use the iPad and its cloud to make students learn theorems more easily, conduct experiments more effectively and write (and re-write) much better. The cloud means that papers will not be misplaced or lost; notes can be more effectively shared from lessons; student absences won't result in lost learning time because students will be able to watch webcasts (in real time!). This is a tremendous opportunity; I suggest Apple and the United Federation of Teachers meet immediately to discuss ways of collaborating and getting iPads into teacher's hands right away and shortly thereafter into the classroom.
Our kids can't wait.
