  •  
    Following today's Apple Event, Apple has just released Apple Configurator, an app that "makes it easy for anyone to mass configure and deploy iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch in a school, business, or institution."

This should break down a few major barriers that kept organizations from widely adopting the devices before.

I'm sure lots of teachers are wondering whether it's hype and what the true potential of these devices are as tools for learners.
