Classroom Tablet Dilemma Unfolding in Ireland
Unlike the "Steve Jobs Schools" in the Netherlands, which made the deployment of tablets in the classroom look relatively easy, the Irish are having a different experience altogether.
But they're not using iPads in the classroom.
According to new reports out of Europe today, "a principal [for the Mountrath Community College in Laoishas] called the move to switch students from books to tablets 'an unmitigated disaster' and has ordered new books for the first year classes."
The ‘book to e-book’ move was deemed a disaster following major technical issues with the majority of the HP Elite Pad tablet devices.
According to the report, the school is not blaming HP, as the tech maker has purportedly said that resolving this issue is a "priority."
