I believe firmly that you should start with your end educational outcomes and then work backwards (backwards design) to what solution to implement.
I agree on what is the objective or what is the problem that we are trying to solve. Our solution is only as good as how well we define the problem. Don't know who said this?The corollary to this is to make the machines do what YOU want.In other words is the limitation the hardware or the software?

Start the conversation with the objective - what is that you want students to be able to do with whatever device is provided? Once this is defined, the appropriate platform and hardware will become more clear.
