Rolling out 110 iPads at Cedars School of Excellence

Fraser Speirs:

Our new set of iPads rolled in today. We have gone with 4th Generation 9.7″ iPad, WiFi and, this time, 32GB. What follows is a story about opening boxes.

Cedars was one of the first schools on the planet to adopt a 1:1 student iPad project. Now they’ve traded in their lot of 1st-gen iPads, and are stepping up to the current model.

I really enjoy seeing all the small steps that go into a deployment of iPads at a school, and the little amount of time per-unit it takes to prepare them may surprise you.
