Mobile Devices

As an early adopter of 1:1 devices we have years of experience in this area.  Our school started out using Samsung Galaxy Tablets.

Chromebooks

Following the successful use of Galaxy Tablets we then began looking for a device which could offer even more.  Our research led eventually to the Chromebook. For the past 3 years we have implemented a Chromebook 1:1 strategy which has taken our use of mobile devices even further.  The chromebooks and associated Google Apps for Education are an integral part of how we use technology at the school.

Of course while the chromebooks themselves are fantastic it’s the use of Google Apps for Education which really drives their use.  For any teachers wanting ideas on how to use Google Apps for Education please feel free to see our video playlist.
