Tablets in secondary schools good idea or bad ?
So I have always believed that tablets are a bad idea in secondary schools primary schools yes great
but for the price of an IPAD I can buy a laptop(with a keyboard) and manage it through GPO
even an android device (as we have just purchased a batch of, not my idea) will have cost us around £200 each with the relevant software to lock them down
just so they can look flashy to parents visiting the school and because some people believe as they are great for sitting in front of the telly and browsing
Facebook they must be great in schools
Apple have done a great advertising campaign (it's what they are good at) at making us believe they are great for our kids
what’s the general consensus on using tablets in a secondary school environment ?
Do you or Don't you have them ?
