If you don’t need to sell your iPad V1 in order to help finance your iPad 2, or just find yourself with extra iPads laying about your house, here’s a great way to re-home them.

Apple now has a program that can match your obsolete iPad with someone who really needs it — an educator in a low-income school district. Through alink on the Apple Retail web page, Apple is directing those who want to share the magic of the iPad with an appreciative audience to the Teach For Americawebsite.

Teach for America is an organization that aims to end ‘educational inequity’ and help ensure that even children in low income communities receive an excellent education. I think that’s a great objective and a very worthy cause – especially now with all the looming cuts to schools and teachers here in the US.

To donate your iPad to Teach for America you just need to take it into an Apple retail store. They’ll do the rest and get it prepped and delivered to a school district that can put it to good use.

For those of you who have recently got an iPad 2, what did you do with your first-gen iPad, or what do you plan to do with it?

  1. Or just about take it to any school and ask for it to be logged (and given documentation) of a charitable donation. As a music teacher, I’d encourage yoyto donate to music teachers (or through their booster clubs, who are usually tax-exempt organizations), who could find 1,000 uses for such a device but are usually at the end of the receiving chain of technology, because of the focus on certain other areas that are connected to state testing.
