This white paper discusses how a reliable and secure infrastructure can help your K12 school or District support greater student achievement with digital learning.


We are in the middle of a six year iPad deployment to our middle and high school students. Year 4 would see iPads going home with students in grades 7-10. That's more than 25,000 kids in a diverse district with a high number of free and reduced lunch and ELL learners.

 

We have had many challenges and our 1-1 program is far from perfect but I liken it to a road trip. If you've ever taken one, you know that half way to your destination you and everyone with you wants to go home. Complaints about the loss of creature comforts, patience, and vision make everyone long for the good ol' days.

 

Papers like this help reset the purpose and provide a solid rationale for traveling forward, not going back.
