Not to add a negative note, but until the battery issue is resolved in an affordable/cost-effective way - laptops or any type of electronic learning device can create problems. I currently work with several schools that have wireless laptops in a cart. As an example, you have laptops where the batteries are 3 years old. They laptops are charged overnight and when used the next day - you are lucky if you can get 30 minutes from them. And classrooms are not equipped to plug in 15 devices so students can continue to work. We have demo'ed a rechargeable unit that will work for an entire school day - but at $300 a piece it is not an affordable choice for some school. And definitely not for most families. I would love to hear from someone who has dealt with this issue and has some type of solution in place. Until there is a way to effectively and efficiently run an electronic learning device - they are only useful for short period of time.

I would say an enhanced eReader. Microsoft already provides a good one, but if it included graphics, photos, tables, and charts it would be terrific. I would also love to see an enhanced ability for students to create links of their own both to other relevant text in an eBook they may be working with as well as to relevant sites. We are truly no longer teaching kids information we are teaching them how to access information and to assimilate iit (No BORG reference intended)
