iFail: Why John Deasy’s Risky iPad Gambit Crashed and Burned at LAUSD

I TOLD YOU SO UPDATE–iFail: Why John Deasy’s Risky iPad Gambit Crashed and Burned at LAUSD.  “In a surprising reversal, L.A. Unified Superintendent John Deasy has abruptly halted the district’s billion-dollar technology program, which aimed to put an iPad into the hands of every student and teacher by the end of, yes, this year.”  More links about the history of the program here, here, and here, but I still have the same opinion: the benefit of tablets for each student can only fully be realized when you change the traditional classroom model.
