Hi people…
Just finished reading this article and thought you may be interested in it given your posts. It’s the Pedagogy, Stupid: Lessons from an iPad Lending Program

I think it hints at the real problem with any implementation, namely, if you are just using the tech to do the same, why are you bothering? (Just how much money has been wasted on IWBs for instance?)

FWIW: There is still no other tablet to compare with the iPad for two important reasons – the wealth of Apps available, and the iPad’s build in accessibility options (there is NO other tablet that comes close in this particular regard). That said, the new Nexus 7 appears to have some potential…

The point you make about Edinburgh not supporting Apple is possibly a moot one… most Councils’ do not support personal devices so the make may be irrelevant! ;o) I am hoping someone will do something about that in the future!

Good luck with what ever you choose… and keep posting here to keep us informed.
