Fraser Speirs writing about 1:1 deployment in K-12 schools using the iPad:
The shift towards LTE cellular networking - which is typically faster than the broadband in a school - is starting to look like an interesting option for schools that cannot provision or scale their networks to multiple thousands of devices.
When using the iPad at coffee shops or hotels during conferences, I do not even bother anymore looking for wifi. It is exciting that schools are looking to go that direction.
Forget "traditional" social media means of communicating to students about financial aid, via facebook, twitter, or the less "social" of email, web portal, or snail mail. We should be thinking about push notificaitons. I am only half joking.
