I'm just starting to put through a quick install tutorial for a primary school who are likely to be using netbooks (flavour to be decided shortly) from September. The idea is to get them in before summer and get the staff used to them, as well as talking through easy fix methods for the external tech they get in 1/2 a day a week.
Initial thoughts are about only using cloud services for storage, or using SD cards for the students so that there is nothing on the local machine to lose.
Cloud storage would be via a hosted sharepoint platform, but there are considerations of bandwidth (both wireless and also that of the school to the hosted solution) but we all know that SD cards may not be the best solution in the world, especially the risk of loss or damage with constantly being pushed in and out.
Since these devices are likely to be XP Home due to cost what do people feel about using FOG for the deployment ... would they have other preferred options (even if that includes coughing up for XP Pro and using WDS).
How are people who are using netbooks in primary schools findig them? Do you have a single login or do you still use domain accounts?
