Creative Thinking: Why Multi-mode Devices are Finding a Place in K-12 Classrooms: White Paper

Keeping up with classroom device needs in K-12 is not just a technology decision. Students want consumer functionality. Teachers expect trouble-free integration of devices with minimal need for tech support, and IT hopes for affordable machines that are durable and manageable. A new type of device has come to the forefront that meets these requirements in a rugged and education-friendly form: the multi-mode computer.


NetApp, Citrix and Cisco cordially invite you to be a part of the discussions as today's technologies give birth to a powerfully flexible, anytime, anywhere environment that allows students and faculty to advance their educational experiences to the next level.
