Hi everyone, I posted the same thing in the Windows forum, but I'd also like to post it here to see if there's another angle from the posters that only post here. Our school district is considering moving to a 1:1 initiative where all 5-12 students will have a mobile device, whether it be an iPad, Laptop, or some other tablet or smartphone, and I was just wondering if I could get your input on what the advantages and disadvantages of each would be? Try to keep the flames to a minimum. This is not an Apple versus everyone else discussion. Obviously it's harder to type on a tablet without a physical keyboard. iOS doesn't have a file system that you can browse. It's difficult to print from iOS (can you even do it?) Are you able to plug USB drives into an iPad? We cannot manage iPads through group policy... However, the battery life, portability, and app availability is excellent for an iPad... I'm just looking for more objective measures to take into consideration for this.
