Educators and Developers: A New Model for Collaboration

Some schools will find the use of bluetooth a great choice since their school district may block devices connecting to each other through the wireless network due to security concerns.

But what do I need?

Some of my best ideas for posts come from questions I get, either at the Reference Desk or while out and about. Last week I was at an Orientation event when a parent came up and asked me what apps her daughter needed on her iPad. An excellent question, but very difficult to answer on the fly.
