    If the machines are not personal, how do you manage student work such as unfinished presentations/reports/movies etc? Do you use something like Google Apps? When we visited schools with class sets of iPads they were used mainly as portable internet access devices, whereas we have kids creating and storing work on them. We have found kids suggest ways the iPads could be used to teachers once teachers start a particular unit and explain the learning outcomes and assessment. Wouldn't really be possible if the kids weren't able to download and test apps, or take photos, screenshots etc and store them for later use.
    All of which can be done on any device...not just an IPAD.....It is not the IPAD that is important, but the use of the device....it should not matter what device the end-user has, but from an IT perspective, it is how you manage the services, the device just being a service, as are the software tools.....If the management and all the support contracts make sense, then I guess it is the right tool for you....I cannot see anything that makes sense with APPLE support contracts btw....maybe I missed something here...

    btw..look at live@edu or office365 for students....it is free...and you get web-apps...and security...
