Hi all - I was wondering if people have any thoughts around the use of an MLE when considering implementing BYOD with 3G in a school/kura? Cheers Rob

    As the cost of 3G data is expensive, I don't think it is possible for most schools to even consider implementing this for a least a couple fo year until the telecommunications companies actually start to come on board.

    This has been brought up as ome of the ideas around the secondary futures work that was done a few years ago, when will schools no longer have to provide access to the internet... Though with the cost of infrastructure being helped be developed in schools by the ministry, the roll out of Ultra fast broadband and the rurual broadband initative to schools and the investment in wifi technologies i don't see any one really going for it in the next 5 years.

    Though it does bring up the question on providing access on field trips and the like.
