Ipads Vs Samsung Tablet

Hi all

We are a GAFE school with a few Ipads. We are  submitting Assitive Technology applications and are wondering if we should go for a Tablet over the Ipad. So far the tablet allows google docs to be used in a much friendlier way. We use Explain Everything and this uploads to google drive easily. 

What are your thoughts? Anyone?

Thanks

    Hi Merryl,

    Like Lynne said it really does come down to what the student's needs are and how to meet these in the best way. But on saying that if the Samsung tablet runs android then it will likely be a smoother and easier choice than an iPad.

    What will the learner be needing to do on the tablet? Will accessing GAFE be a big part of how it is used? Will they need to use any accessibility features? Are their any specific apps that will be used and are these avaiable on both platforms?
