The Device

Students will need a device that is suitable for typing and editing documents and accessing and using internet resources and tools.

Specifications of suitable devices for these classes:
  • Wireless capable - preferably 802.11n Wi-Fi standard as this gives the right speed and volume
  • Internet capable
  • Long battery life (ie netbook, iPad or other Tablet PC). Laptops/notebooks often will not last through a full school day although there are opportunities to charge devices
  • A screen large enough to work with documents in order to create and edit content.
Other considerations:
  • Weight - this will need to be carried around school with other school books
  • Robustness - sturdy enough for school use
  • Warranty - students using the device regularly will want faults fixed quickly
  • Insurance - make sure you are covered for replacement if lost or stolen
