About a week ago, Edutopia posted an article about the integration hurdle of the [iPad] vs. Laptop debate. So true. Our own BYOD program was wrung through such a wringer during the planning phase where the conversation routinely careened into "what you can't do" territory for both device types. It's naive to think that app, software, hardware developers out there are deaf to the "Well, a [insert device here] can't..." paradigm as functionality is improving across the board. However, I believe it's an even greater misstep to not let what a device can do better inform your organization's decision-making. This really is the essence of the transformational stages in the SAMR model.
