Lets not forget that these tablets are district budget friendly. Unlike those overpriced, luxury model personal tablets.

Sounds interesting. I want to see more how the data from the apps gets back to the teacher to show time spent on what app(s), how the student did and where they had issues (maybe by additional time spent on particular items such as 2+2 took 2 seconds while 10+2 took 10 seconds). Also, im worried about the security such as who is capable of viewing the cameras on these devices and can they be remotely turned on. This was an issue a while back with some Mac books where a principle was turning on the cameras of devices when the students were away from school.
