The Connected Learning Advisory — Te Ara Whītiki has recently published a guide on Choosing the right digital device.
This guide will provide you with information that will help you as you decide which devices to buy for your school. It is important to consider not just the devices but how your students use them and which device is best for which sorts of activities for effective teaching and learning. It will also be useful for schools providing advice to parents about which type of device to purchase for a BYOD environment.
A webinar was also held recently in which Brian Sheedy of Te Totara School, and John Creighton of Burnside High School, shared alongside CLA advisor, Anne Robertson, about their experiences with digital device choices in school.
The Connected Learning Advisory website also contains a rich guide on Planning for and managing 1:1 digital devices in your school. This guide offers schools starting points and a brief roadmap to support planning for, and managing, a 1:1 digital programme.
