Grunwald Associates and the Learning First Alliance with support from AT&T, found that, according to data from a representative nationwide sample of nearly 2,400 parents, more than four in five K-12 students at least occasionally use some sort of computing device, including mobile devices like tablets or smartphones, or laptop computers.

    These sexy tablets might be the apple of faculty and students’ eyes, but for IT directors and their staffs.

    iPads are designed for consumer use, and as such, they’re not set up for large-scale implementations. They’re not even set up for two users to share the same device, much less for sharing over a network. For schools making a major investment in iPads on campus, the solution is a combination of new policies and investment in third-party tools for managing the devices.
