Planning Your Classroom Deployment of iPads
This chapter discusses how to plan your deployment of iPads in the classroom. We’ll start with a quick reality check about your school’s plans to add computers to the classroom and then move along to practical matters. You’ll get to know the capabilities of iPads and how they compare—both favorably and unfavorably—to laptops and desktops. We’ll then go through what you’ll need to do to plan the deployment, starting with choosing a deployment model, moving along through choosing which iPads to get, deciding whether to supervise them, and choosing how to manage them. Finally, we’ll discuss making sure that your school’s network and Internet connection have enough bandwidth to handle the additional traffic the iPads will generate.
