Who else is using systems like this?
Can I use my own tablet?
What tablets are suitable?
Any Android, iOS or Windows devices are suitable. We do not recommend using cellphones for this – they are too small.
Tier one Android devices (eg Samsung, Acer, Asus, Sony, LG) with a Quad core CPU at 1.2GHz, 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM, Android v5 or higher (lollipo or later)
- Apple iOS:
iOS 9 or higher, iPad 4 and higher, iPad Mini, iPad Air, or iPad Pro
Any Windows tablet with Windows 10 or higher, 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM
Any Chromebook that supports Android Play Store, ASUS Chromebook Flip, Acer Chromebook R11/C738T, Google Chromebook
Is this cheaper than the traditional text books?
The tablet can be used each year that the learner is at school, and be used after leaving school.
Will the tablets be insured by the school? No. Since the tablets belong to each student
What happens if the tablet breaks or gets lost?
If a tablet is replaced, the last backup up data will be re-downloaded to the new tablet
Do I need an internet connection (WiFi) at home?
Students can continue to work offline and do not need an internet connection at home. Once a student returns to school, and connects to the WiFi, the tablet will synchronise and upload all completed work.
Will my child be able to get onto the internet at school?
Are there charging facilities at school?
However we strongly recommend that students bring fully charged tablets to school to prevent delays in learning. Tablets generally tend to last longer than cell phones on a single charge which should eliminate problems where batteries run out.
