    They seem to have a lot of good bells and whistles (for the
    teacher) but our tech guy says it has poor iPad options. (we
    are 1:1 iPad)

    I am considering Asi Se Dice and Descubre. I think Descubre has
    the best technology and pacing is great but they are somewhat
    esoteric (geared to college kids).

    This is really hard. I DO use my book, I teach 4 levels and
    would be lost without one. I also know whatever we choose we
    are stuck with for many years to come.
