@CorrieB provides more insights into the 1:1 iPad implementation at Manor Lakes College in this May 2012 Parent Update. It’s interesting to contrast the way in which Manor Lakes is dealing with infractions of the policy upfront with not only the parent body but more broadly on the web and other institutions who resort to banning. It’s also illuminating to see some of the knock-on effects that accrue to the implementation process. Having the statewide ISP throttling back downloads has the potential to be extremely limiting unless suitable protocols and procedures can be found to get around this bottleneck. It will be interesting to see how Manor Lakes gets on.
In the meantime we all benefit from the generosity with which Corrie so honestly shares their experiences.
