It seems more and more schools are considering, trialing or implementing one-to-one devices in their classrooms.

Orewa college has asked parents to provide their year 9 students with a mobile device for next year, the Manaiakalani project shares a reflective summary on one netbook per child, one Calgary college is building iPads into the cost of tuition, Zeeland students get Ipads from grants and Tech news reports Irish school kids swap books for iPads. The rationale in this last example, is that students will be more employable and it will end up costing the school less (40pc) than conventional books.

Is your school thinking about more access to mobile devices?What are some of the issues, celebrations and successes with managing multiple devices?
