Connecting iPads to Network Resources and File Storage
Posted on February 21, 2013
The use of iPads and tablets in the classroom is expected to increase dramatically in the coming years. However, schools are being faced with real challenges in making effective use of them. From a technical perspective, these devices were not designed to play well with traditional network resources. They don’t easily access existing software tools or network storage locations. Now with a growing interest in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and mobile initiatives — Instructional Technologists are really scratching their heads and searching for effective solutions.
ClassLink believes the future of instructional technology includes the need to bridge device disparity. With the growing reality that all connected devices will eventually end up in the classroom, it becomes critical to have a unified virtual desktop to deliver all instructional resources and provide access to all work files from any device, anywhere.
