Jennifer Roland writes in this blog post about policies, such as one in the Mankato Public School System in Minnesota, allowing students to use their own mobile devices for learning in the classroom, creating more availability for school-owned computers for other students. There are challenges to such arrangements, however, including meshing the use of various devices from new iPad tablet computers to older laptops and the need for increased bandwidth on campus, she writes.
