The Independant on Essa Academy
I notice that The Independant is running an article on Essa Academy today: The school where every teacher has an iPad... and every student has an iPod - Education News - Education - The Independent
It makes quite a good read, and I must admit after visiting there a couple of months back they seem to have invested a lot of time and effort in getting the technology right and coping with bedding in problems well. So much so that another person I was there with had to pint out somethign I had missed. No pupils had books, or book bags and everything is network centric, in this case it being a Meru wireless network throughout the academy.
I should also add that whilst it is Apple at the front end the back is Server 2008, AD and Exchange in a magic triangle.
