one to one insurance
Our school is starting a middle school (11 & 12 year olds) 1:1 program with a 3 year lease and now we are having a heated discussion about if we should buy accidental damage and theft insurance.
I'm looking for people share their experiences and observations to help us make the best decision we can.
What say you?
(BTW: I'm leaving the details of cost and hardware out to cast a wider net)

i would atleast make sure they are covered under accidental damage, you get more damage than warranty repairs in the early years of secondary schools. the older students seem to be alot better from our experience when we ran a scheme 4 years ago.
also make it very clear what level of support YOU are providing.

We rolled out our first yeargroup of 1:1 devices (netbooks in our case) in September, including insurance covering fire, theft and accidental damage.

Worth it? Very much so. We've continued to bundle insurance with the next set of netbooks that we gave out this week.
Both sets of devices were provided to us by a company called Lanway (who also did the imaging and provide the warranty service). The insurance is provided by Compucover.
