Making choices: How to select the best devices for your school in the new era of digital learning - Microsoft in Education blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs:

"While 2013 has just begun, many schools – namely those in the northern hemisphere – are well into budget season, and are preparing in earnest for next year’s school season. As we all know, schools are being asked to do more with less and adding the challenge of choosing the right technology mix, and deciding on the best devices for your school can be a daunting albeit important task.

Where do you start? First, we know that technology alone does not improve student outcomes. Even in this new era of digital learning, I believe it is best to look at systemic change -- curriculum design, assessment, school leadership, teacher capacity and learning environments -- before turning to technology. Only after holistic change has been achieved can technology live up to its potential to serve students and educators."
