I'm writing this on that netbook. I have an iPad but wouldn’t dream of using it for research, note taking, writing or business. It’s used in our house as a sort of look-up device, more ‘search, see and watch’ than ‘write, create and work’.
My kids never use it.

The iPad in Education: The Apps and Deployment http://www.williamstites.net/2011/09/24/the-ipad-in-education-the-apps-deployment/ The iPad in Education: The Apps and Deployment
In an earlier post (The iPad in Education and the Questions — 1/10/2011) I began to look at how an iPad could be used in school in a 1:1 setting. When I wrote the post, I had a lot of question. Some have been answered; many have not. I’m beginning to understand the market for the iPad and have a few observations.
As I see it there are three possible methods for deploying an iPad and the apps:
Centralized Account Syncing : A traditional model
Tandem Accounts : A blended model
Individual Accounts : User “owned”
Smart Student Response System http://www.socrative.com Socrative is a smart student response system that empowers teachers by engaging their classrooms with a series of educational exercises and games. Our apps are super simple and take seconds to login. Socrative runs on tablets, smartphones, and laptops.
Teachers login through their device and select an activity which controls the flow of questions and games. Students simply login with their device and interact real time with the content.
Student responses are visually represented for multiple choice, true/false and Short Answer questions. For pre-planned activities a teacher can view reports online as a google spreadsheet or as an emailed Excel file.
Student Owned Laptop Programs https://bit.ly/g4vxFU Student Owned Laptop Programs
Some schools encourage student-owned laptops as opposed to school-owned laptops.
The families are therefore responsible for the machine (software, troubleshooting, repairs, etc).
This model puts the onus of support and repair on the students and families, thus relieving the school's tech department from many issues.

Still others are using Title funds and applying for grants to get netbooks into students’ and teachers’ laps.
However your district pays for it, there are a few essential issues to discuss. Here are some of them and thoughts from other districts.

How to Implement 1:1 Computing in Education https://bit.ly/9t8N4v How to Implement 1:1 Computing in Education
For many technology administrators in education, the idea of implementing 1:1 computing programs is far rosier than the actual process. Providing a 1:1 education takes far more than just an investment in technology, it requires a complete attitude adjustment on the part of students, teachers, administrators, parents – the entire school community. #ISTE
The Rise of Tablets, and Why You Should Care https://mashable.com/2010/02/06/tablets-rise/ The Rise of Tablets, and Why You Should Care
The concept of tablet computing is hardly a new idea. Although prototypes of tablet or pen-input based computers go back to the late 1970s, the first big industry push for pen computing came in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
The convenience factor alone makes it a killer device. Mark my words, whoever is able to get textbook publishers and universities on-board en masse first will ultimately win the eBook market.
The great thing about tablet computers is that they aren’t just eBook readers. They can offer additional content experiences as well.

A Leadership Primer
Schools around the world are at long-last embracing the implementation of 1:1 computing. However, many of the best intentions are stymied by a lack of leadership, narrow vision and an inability to communicate ambitious goals that justify the investment to cautious stakeholders.
The following is a series of answers often provided to support 1:1 computing and suggestions for how the same leader might inspire the hearts and minds of teachers, parents and community members.
Laptops and Learning Resources http://www.stager.org/laptops.html Laptops and Learning Resources "Gary Stager is one of the true pioneers of the 1:1 laptop movement. His work in this area includes looking beyond the laptops to their effective application by students as true tools for learning. Rather than seeing 1:1 computing as a vehicle for replicating older educational models, Gary sees it as a chance to transform educational practice in ways that truly prepare young people for lifelong learning."

This is the wiki for the One Laptop per Child association. The mission of this non-profit association is to develop a low-cost laptop—the "$100 Laptop"—a technology that could revolutionize how we educate the world's children. Our goal is to provide children around the world with new opportunities to explore, experiment, and express themselves.
Why do children in developing nations need laptops? Laptops are both a window and a tool: a window into the world and a tool with which to think. They are a wonderful way for all children to learn learning through independent interaction and exploration.
