As a result of the VDI initiative, teachers have access to all of their software, applications and resources from any computer. Additionally, all iStations have been redesigned to include a permanently installed computer. As a result, teachers no longer need a notebook computer to use the iStation. The existing inventory of teacher notebook computers are being reconfigured and redeployed for school-based uses to include use by teachers and students in a variety of configurations. With the addition of nearly 900 computers in the iStations, the division has provided wider access to technology by increasing the ratio of computers to student and teacher.
