School iPad Deployment - Were thinking about buying iPads for school but where do I start?
A teacher friend of mine asked me recently if I was able to advise them on producing a road-map document to assist their school who are looking to deploy c. 800 iPads/ iTouch to their students.
There is so much information online today to support exactly this, some of the best advice coming from teachers directly involved in the implementation process.
Things to think about:
After a quick trawl online I would recommend reading the following blogs - all packed full of relevant issues and solutions.
If you want to get a good ROI its worth spending time exploring the issues and logistics. Make sure you do the research before you buy any mobile devices. When you get the right infrastructure in place you can start as you mean to go on - happy bedtime reading!
