Apple’s iPad and Google’s Chromebook in US K-12 classrooms

2013-02-15
Published : Feb-2013

With the proliferation of mobile devices throughout the general population, it is natural for teachers, students, administrators and parents to look for extensions of these tools for K-12 classrooms.  While desktop computers and computer labs have been around for decades, it has only been within the past three-to-four years, and the past 12 months especially, that mobile devices have gained a foothold in the education market.  In this report, we outline the changes underway in US K-12 classrooms with regard to mobile technology.  In particular, we highlight Apple’s iPad and Google’s Chromebook as two potential devices that schools may wish to consider in their mobile technology selection process.

The study details key success factors that are critical when introducing mobile technology into K-12 schools, including infrastructure, device management, software updates, technical support, deployment and management, and pricing/total cost of ownership.  Additionally, we highlight Apple and Google’s unique approaches to the K-12 education market in terms of the applications they offer, their security and malware protection, and likely future plans for both vendors in this market. The paper concludes with an assessment of the capabilities offered by Apple and Google in  the education market, along with recommendations for success based on discussions with education leaders who have successfully deployed iPads and Chromebooks in their schools and districts.
