Read the report. Some good outcomes, realistic problems but not sure why android 2.2 was used. Must have been cost.

Man, I found this useful. There is a lot around iOS, and just too little on Android and others.

What Happens When You Deploy Android Tablets In A Classroom | Edudemic | android tablets for education | Scoop.it

We hear of many reports on the deployment of iPads in classrooms and schools, but what about the deployment of Android tablets? This post is a review of what happened in a 5th grade classroom where all students were provided with an Android tablet. It highlights a "must-read report that details every aspect of how it went."

The full report provides a "high-level step-by-step guid to deploying Android tablets" (most likely applicable to any tablet deployment).

Key takeways are provided such as (quoting from the post):

* The  school district came up with new policies, processes, and instituted IT support for the project.

* The parents were involved in the project as well. (Additional info in post)

* The overall price came out to be $200 per student per year.

* There were multiple technical problems thoughout every week that required that tablets be rest to factory settings.

Much more may be found in the post, or you might want to check out the actual report, "Learning is Personal, Stories of Android Tablet Use in the 5th Grade" at http://www.learninguntethered.com.
