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.
