‘Fit for purpose’ computing devices for teachers and students are critical in supporting teaching and learning. It is important that teachers are equipped with devices that allow them to carry out activities to support teaching and learning outcomes that align with the schools Digital Learning Plan, but also devices that they are comfortable with.
Student devices need to support a wide range of activities that allow students to engage effectively in classes, in project work and other learning activities. Student devices need to be WiFi enabled, mobile, robust and need to have long battery life, so that they can be used throughout the school day.
PDST-TiE have developed a ‘Computing Devices Guide’ for schools to assist them in selecting suitable devices for teachers and students. This guide can be downloaded using the link below.
