Ever since Richards launched the new iPads to the students, reactions have been mostly positive. Of course, as with any new technology, there have been some problems.

“Overall, there are about 15 different types of problems that students have. There are minor problems like cracked screens or the iPad being lost, but the technology department usually ends up finding it. There have been no problems with theft,” explains Mrs. Meg Dunneback.

The technology department has also been looking into the problem of the school’s wifi being inconsistent and, at times, unusable. To combat the increase in network traffic, the tech department improved the routers, but the problems are also the app themselves.

“In the future, we would like to have a student group who are tech savvy that can help other students with iPad issues because most students are more tech savvy than adults today,” says Dunneback.

The iPad issues aren’t that major considering there are less than 15 problems; however, some problems do arise like students failing to update applications or leaving multiple websites running in the background.  Contrary to what most students may think, most problems can be traced to an app developer, a particular website, or standard user error.

Two months into the iPad rollout and the new devices are clearly a great new investment to the school. There are certainly a few minor problems, but it’s still a step in the right direction in preparing Richards students for the technological demands of the future.
