Apple’s education-focused event held today in the Guggenheim Museum in New York City is over and it’s now time to take stock of what the company announced. What we saw today was almost exactly as we expected, some of the more nuanced details such as application names and such were off the mark but beyond that we saw nothing we didn’t expect and got everything we did.

On Thursday Apple will hold its first event of 2012. The event which will be held in New York City early on Thursday morning is guaranteed to be focused solely on the education market. Thankfully Apple clarified this intention with the actual event invite itself leaving no room for speculation on 50-inch Apple branded television sets or Apple TV boxes that can have Siri-type commands shouted at them.
Instead the little speculation that has led us up to this week has focused on the iPad and textbooks. When I say the iPad I don’t mean a refresh of the iPad hardware, that’s not likely to happen until April, I’m talking about how Apple will use the iPad to dominate the education market.
