  • Tablets are a great way to show textbooks. Tablets are capable of enhancing text books making content more interactive by featuring images, videos and audio. Tablets are a great way for school children to read a class novel or to read Newspapers, reports or journals.For junior classes many Apps are available for word recognition and spelling and are full of colour and pictures to enhance learning.
  • Students are ready for tablets. Many school children use touch screen based platforms such as game consoles and phones and already have a good knowledge of the technology.Many already have a tablet at home.
  • Tablets can be easily added to schools current networks and teachers can easily provide files for all class members, making it easy to provide the same information to all of their students across their Tablets.Just beware that if your school WIFI is not up to standards then you may have issues with logons , downloads , web browsing etc , see our Post on advice on School Wifi , click here
