Wagoner also noted that the iPad initiative has helped erase the disparity between the technology students and teachers use at home and what they use in the learning environment. In the CDW-G 2011 21 st -Century Classroom Report, CDW-G reported that 94 percent of high school students already use technology to study or work on homework assignments and the same high percentage believe that technology skills will improve both their educational and career opportunities. School districts like Waverly Shell Rock are recognizing the value of ensuring that these tech-savvy students have access to the same tools in the classroom that they do at home.
“K-12 districts understand the significant impact that mobile devices and instant access to learning resources and applications can have on their teachers, classrooms and most of all, students,” said Gerard Festa, director of vertical solutions, Aruba Networks. “Because of this, the wireless network has become mission critical and districts are increasingly turning to Aruba. We’re excited about the tremendous opportunities we are seeing and about our work to help K-12 districts achieve their goals.”
