Deployment patterns

iPads were deployed in one of three configurations:

  • Class sets - in this configuration students only get to use iPads in specific lessons when they are issued by the teachers. This is the least personalised model of deployment (1 school adopted this model)
  • Personal use in schools - in this model students are allocated an iPad as a personal tool to use in every lesson but only within school. They are not allowed to take it home (1 school adopted this model)
  • Personalised - in this model students are allocated the iPad on a personal basis and they are able to use it both in and outside of school. This was the most common pattern of depolyment used in 6 of the case study schools
