Your district just bought many iPads. What do you do with them? There are many educational uses. However, can your users access the school's current applications running on Microsoft Windows PCs? This session shows a new technology called Virtual Desktops. Virtual Desktops allow you to use your Microsoft Windows PC on your iPad, iPhone,  Android, Kindle, Macintosh computer or another PC. You can control the same Virtual PC from anywhere on the Internet -- school, home or the car. No matter where you are, your Virtual PC screen always looks the same. You have all of your Office documents, Internet Explorer favorites and files on your Virtual Desktop available at all times. Meanwhile, you don't have to worry about Windows viruses, because your Virtual Desktop (PC) is managed by the school technology administrator. You will see examples of school districts that already built Virtual Desktops. Finally, you will see Total Cost of Ownership/Return on Investment (TCO/ROI) numbers that show how you can save money by implementing Virtual Desktops.
