Advice for wheel chair mount

I'd like to purchase a wheel chair mount for my iPad. Does anyone have any suggestions? Any luck with a particular mount? Anyone get a mount that they do not particularly like? Thanks!

Keeping a notebook

I now have so many apps on my iPad that I have trouble keeping track of what I have downloaded. I have found it helpful to keep a folder called "this week" with the apps that are in my lesson plans for the week. Also, because SLP's have so many students, I find that I forget what apps worked well for which students. I now have a spiral notebook with each child's' name on a page. I write down the name of the app and any useful comments for the next time I use the iPad with that child. Seems to be working ok so far.

iPad 2 camera

I just got the iPad 2 and love the camera feature. I was just at the Early Learning Center last week helping a teacher create a book of all the displayed bulletin boards as well as making a picture schedule. I was able to take pictures with the iPad, take notes on the note pad feature about what the teacher needed and show some of the pictures I took to the visually impaired student right then and there. I found that the student was able to see himself on the large iPad screen. It was convenient to use one device to take notes and pictures. It was also nice to have a large screen to view the photo.
