Schools in the Digital AgeIllinois Institute of Design (2007)

“Kids lead high tech lives outside school and decidedly low tech lives inside school. This new ‘divide’ is making the activities inside school appear to have less real world relevance to kids.”

Technology use in schools

Technology use outside school

The Gap

“Can your students take lessons to go?”


Student owned devices the future ict budget

Student-owned devices - the future ICT budget

Total cost of ownership (TCO)?

  • Initial cost and disposal cost

  • Technical support cost

  • Training costs

  • Electricity and insurance

  • How many minutes of a week are your computers used?

  • What is the effect on…classroom setup? flexible use? logon times? reprographics bill?

    School provides…

  • Sustainable wireless infrastructure

  • An environment that exploits online applications

  • Learning resources and activities in appropriate formats

  • The £0 ICT budget?

    Squeezing the maximum impact out of learning technologies

    What can student-owned devices do for me?


    Is your aup right

    Is your AUP right?

    • Only use a device with teachers permission

    • Your choice to bring a device in, your responsibility, it’s an add on to excellent ICT facilities in school

    • You only use it in lesson time for learning activities you don’t make social calls, texts, or browse irrelevant web sites

    • Let students come up with the sanctions

      PUNISH THE BEHAVIOUR – NOT THE DEVICE!


    Are your technical team thinking about the future

    Are your technical team thinking about the future?

    • Is the model still fit for purpose?

    • Do they enable or block? Do they lead or follow?

    • Audit their work - do they see the positives?
