The eventual story was that I decided to sell the iPad mini 2 in the end.
However, I asked Z to pitch in $200 towards the purchase of an iPad Pro 9.7″. I told him it was more worthwhile to pool our resources to share a bigger and more powerful iPad than to hold onto to 1 old iPad mini 2 and 1 new iPad mini 4.
He was excited and game for the idea. With that, he became a shareholder of the iPad Pro.
I tested some of the websites the school was using and they worked fine on the iPad. No flash-based materials so far, phew! If there was any flash-based materials, I guess he would have to use our laptop or MacBook Pro.
I thought having a mobile learning device would be more useful than lugging books around.
Given that myon was also useful for X, it would be a handy tool.
I also thought Z should pick up typing skills and the Smart Keyboard should provide a good training ground.
With that, Z had a mobile and digital learning environment. I guessed I would be doing a tiering scheme, I.e he had to complete a certain number of tasks before he could download a game app.
