I reviewed the information regarding all of the new devices that will be available for students to utilize as a learning device in the classroom. I like the fact that the teachers will be the manager as to what content is on the devices. I am assuming students will not have the capabilities to download anything to the devices. This is a process completed by the teachers. I also think that teachers will enjoy the fact that they can download directly from the device without having to sync the device to their laptops. Regarding class room management, I find it to be a great idea to establish some classroom rules when using these devices as far as the proper handling and usage. I feel it is necessary to have only one person per class period that is responsible for removing the devices for use during class time. It will be interesting.
