Desktops are not mobile, they have a fixed location at home, work or school. As we moved towards 1 to 1 access with laptops, students were more mobile, between home and school. When iPads were introduced student’s mobility increased even further. Students can now take iPads from home to school and other worthwhile locations. The iPad is suitable for school excursions, outside classwork, sporting events, family and friendship activities. In the future, smartphones may allow for the ultimate mobility- being connected 24-7. The world today is mobile, so it’s important for schools to prepare students for the future workforce.
