Default 12yo needs an Ipad for school?

I got to ask... am I the only one shocked by this statement? Ok I have no idea how school works these days. Heck when I was in school, all the American shows I watched showed kids doing their homework on the computer... I never did my homework on the computer. Is it expected now?

The woman who posted that her kid needs an Ipad for school doesn't have much money, and feels bad because her other kids want one too (at 8), but thinks her 12yo needs one, and loves reading too so it would help (doesn't reading on an Ipad hurt your eyes? I can't imagine).

So, I'm confused. Should I expect to spend $600 per kid in electronics in 8 years? Of course I keep seeing people buy tablets for their 2yo kids so I guess it shouldn't surprise me, but man... heck I don't have a tablet (or feel the need for one... my laptop is just easier to use!).
