SMART Sync and the future of classroom management…

So now that Sync is available for Macs teachers can now manage computer-enable classrooms much more easily. There have always been software packages to do this, of course (like Apple Remote Desktop), but there is a lot to be said about simplicity. It would be nice if teachers could send, receive, monitor, disseminate content, and support learning from a central device over an entire classroom… enter Sync.

So what is the next step? Perhaps this software will allow for the integration of the iPad or similar devices… What do you think?!
