Not only did the iPad receive the highest rating, it was also the cheapest of any device, at $678 per unit – which includes the software, cases and a 3-year warranty. That price represents a discount for the district, since they are buying the tablets in bulk.
This is a case study of the need for "disruptive innovation," which somehow never quite arrives in ed tech.
$678 per unit in 2013? Absurd.
