What does multidevice classroom mean? A multidevice classroom implies a classroom that students can use whatever device they want to accomplish the lesson at hand. For the purposes of this slide show we will include only "Apps" or websites that are available on Android, IOS and regular Web platforms. We have not included blackberry or Windows7 phones, since these devices are currently being overalled or reintroduced into this market. This is the operating system used by most phones and tablets that are NOT Apple products. Usually the device has access to the Android Market. Some devices like the Kindle or Kobo have limited android markets even if they are Android Devices Ipods and IPad run on this operation system.. It is important to remember that not all Apps found on one platform are available on the other. We are only targeting Cloud based apps in this presentation.
