The issue surrounding tablets in the classroom is still a popular topic on the the Tech&Learning newsfeed. The Socorro Independent School District in El Paso, TX  recently handed out 2,500 to all of their teachers, librarians, and instructional coaches. Fresno Unified (CA) looks like it will be approved to spend $7.8 million on 15, 000 Asus tablets this year. And Miami-Dade  is restarting their effort to deploy 100,000 devices by next year.
