Another key finding was that the iPad is much more of an issue with compatibility than basically any netbook. Although I found multiple models of netbooks, all of them met the recommended requirements without any supplemental products. With iPads this was not the case. The lack of keyboard and mouse, and lack of easily used accessories, creates hindrances to testing. Many iPad keyboard and mouse options are wireless, which could interfere with networks, or other wireless devices if whole classes and/or sites are using them. The screen size could also be problematic at 9.7” rather than the required 10”. I was not surprised by this finding however, after iPads have been in the news lately for this very reason. They were the early device of choice for the first 2 years of SDUSD’s roll out, but then in 2012 they switched to various netbooks.
