Eanes School District in Austin, Texas, is another K-12 that has seen the benefits of using mobile devices to deliver a rich learning experience to students. The district has expanded its 1:1 iPad initiative to all students at its high school, as well as selected grade levels in middle and elementary schools.“We had a few small pilots with the iPads first, but quickly came to the consensus that these devices could really revolutionize our learning environment,” said Kevin Schwartz, director of technology services, Eanes School District. “The most important thing that the tablets do for a student is to give them a one-to-one interaction in which they can access a wealth of educational applications and engage in project-based learning. We’ve been able to move forward with this initiative, in large part, because of our Aruba wireless LAN – both its reliability in providing access for these devices and because of its unique ability to handle Apple devices. Aruba wireless has also enabled us to decrease our investment in wired equipment so we could direct those funds to getting iPads in our students’ hands.”
