       Yes, we are in the midst of upgrading our wireless technology in the school. The wireless connection and the coverage
       will be better next year.

8.     If the student has an Android tablet device, would they be able to be part of this MDM programme?

        It is encouraged to use iPad because majority of the apps and learning materials are optimized for iOS. As the school’s
        focus is teaching and learning, we do spend some time to design our materials based on a single platform which is iOS.
        We have yet to optimize our materials for Android platform. Therefore it is advisable to use iPad for the 1:1 Computing Programme.

        For MDM installation, it is applicable to iOS device. We are still in the midst of finding an Android application to support MDM.
