School iPad Program – not as easy as I thought!

School iPad Program – not as easy as I thought! | Mobile in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"One term into the official launch of our iPad program, I thought it would be opportune to reflect on the successes, failures and everything in between. I have to admit, as a self professed, but not certified, iPad/Mac “expert” and ‘All Things Apple’ zealot, things haven’t gone as smoothly as I’d hoped. I would like to blame it all on our proxy server, but I suspect Apple has something to do with it too."

How productive the new generation will be?
FéFé's comment, January 30, 2012 3:47 PM
Ce qui est intéressant c'est qu'il existe toujours des disparités entre pays pauvres et pays riches, mais aussi entre habitants de pays riches qui empêchent que la transmission des outils soient aussi rapide que cela. Il se pourrait que les écarts se creusent avec le temps et l'accélération des innovations. Le débat peut tout aussi bien être déplacé sur le réduction de cette fracture.
