Like any other enterprise, large educational institutions have existing computing infrastructures which are likely built around Windows networks.
Courtney Dodge's insight:
It is common belief that the most commonly used tablet in the education industry is the IPad. Although this is currently true, things are changing! Education institution are now finding that using windows 8 tablets are far more effective and convient. Unlike IPad, these tablets often link directly to a windows 8 PC and so work can be directly transferred quickly and easily. While IPad definetly has some cool gadgets on it, having a windows 8 tablet is literally like carrying around your computer. This makes it far more user friendly (as most of us already know how to use a PC) and it eliminates the fuss of having to get the work off your ipad.
The following article highlights the belief that teachers are no longer experts in the classroom, but are rather facilitators. Students have access to a wide range of information through the use of the internet and it is increasingly becoming the job of the teacher to filter this information down into relevant information.
The question of safety and reliability is also questioned as it is pointed out that the information avaliable on the internet is only useful if it comes from a viable source. The right people need to be involved in the e-learning so as to refrain from shutting out useful sources of information but also be prevent unneccesary behaivour on such sites.
Ultimately it is the student decision as to weather they use the internet or the teacher as a education source.
