Hi all - an interesting one here for those of you interested in how young people use technology nowdays.  I work at a school with a BYOD + google apps policy, and the students use an awful lot of android phones as a result - and I imagine I'll see a number of 7-8 inch tablets this year as well, now that they're taking off at a lower price point.

Problem is, this is all well and good while they're consuming information, and lousy when they need to, say, create/write an assignment.  

We operate a pool of borrow-able equipment for the students: does anyone know of any good android keyboards, either bluetooth or usb, that the kids could then plug their phones and tablets into for assignments?  Then they could get the keyboards/docks out from the pool as needed...

I bought a cheap ($20 delivered) case/keyboard for my Tablet from Aliexpress but wouldn't think it would last the rigors of that sort of use.. It may be worth checking out sites like this though and get some samples and then do a bulk deal.
I'm sure not all would be junk and bluetooth maybe better than USB due to no cables or plugs to break.
