An international superschool?

This article is worth a review for the tech ideas:

It’s interesting that they have a comprehensive 1:1 approach (I wonder when the students shift from iPads to laptops).  Also, it sounds like 90 percent of their materials are on the iPads instead of paper.  However, for an independent school, it’s unusual how heavily tracked and monitored the devices are reported to be (apparently for all students).  Second, it’s strange to think that all 5,000 devices will be replaced by Apple after only two years.  We have always driven the “return on investment” model at our school to get four years of use out of a Macbook, and three out of an iPad.

Still, it’s fun to think about– especially the idea of one school having many international campuses and a shared curriculum, with the plan for students to immerse in different cultures by having semesters around the world as part of the program.  I could see a unified tech strategy (right down to a shared SIS) helping with that.
