iPad Cases that Offer a High Level of Protection

Many iPad cases on the market now provide a reasonable level of protection while maintaining the  benefits and functionality of the slim design and light weight benefits of a tablet device.

There are also numerous cases that provide little or no protection but look great and only last a month or two.

Within a school environment most student owned iPads will take a battering and occasionally get dropped or have excess pressure applied.

I just wanted to share three reasonably priced brands of iPad cases that perform well within a school environment for children who are likely to experience rough use of their device.

Gumdrop cases, Griffin cases  and  Hardcandy cases.

Recommended Device Many2One 2014

Recommended Device..

For students in years 5 to 10 2014 we are continuing to recommend the iPad generation 2, 3, 4 or 5 (iPad Air) 32 GB Wifi only model as the preferred choice of device.

We would like to acknowledge that the iPad Mini is also an attractive option and a suitable choice.

80 to 90% of our students who already part of the Many2One program predominantly use an iPad. The rest have chosen to mainly rely on an Apple laptop,  MacBook Pro or MacBook Air.

We are rapidly moving to online, web based, learning management systems and tools.

This allows for  a more flexible device model and hence our students in years 6 to 12 in 2014  are permitted to bring to class a variety of mobile technologies.

These include Apple, Android or Windows based tablets, laptops or smartphones.

Many2One means many devices and many brands or types of technology for each person. We are working towards an open environment where our community can ultimately choose any appropriate mobile learning technology.
