Thank you for asking that, Elizabeth! I second the question. What
were the specifications against which the Apple iPad was selected, and
what other netbook or tablet products was it compared to?
I’m confused…the pilot talks about netbook 1:1 yet they are buying iPads…was there a comparison study to see which would be more viable in an ed setting?
Back-dooring a brand environment into a public school is a bad precedent. Anything you add to an Apple you buy from the Apple Store. This is an incredible long term financial commitment to a single entity.
