When I was first speaking with schools about 1-to-1 not long after edition 1 of my book (now in its 2nd edition) was published, two big questions were – Is your school/district wireless? Are you providing students with email accounts? Back then, not every school could respond to both questions in the affirmative.
Now we are seeing more ubiquitous devices including tablets, laptops, smart phones and the complexity that ensues. This previous post went into some of the issues faced by schools when introducing BYOD; the comments provide more depth and ideas as well. Any 1-to-1 or BYOD school is wired now as it would make so sense otherwise. Nearly all schools and districts offer some type of email for students if they are 1-to-1.
