Acer Tablets At Nightingale

The Android devices have move on and in order to combat some of the issues that the last school found with app deployment we have now purchased a new content management system.

This is made by
LearnPad http://learnpad.co/

This company does also produce its own tablets, but you can by just the software for £30 per device, which we have done.

I have been spending time this week getting them correctly configured. The software allows you to switch between profiles for different year groups, making the tablets more flexible - it also has the effect of locking down parts of the device which I know the last school has to find a solution to as well or the children started installing apps.

Next week I hope to get the devices in class and use them to capture some of the world book day work we will be doing.

  1. Hi Nic,

    I'm excited by what you are doing with our LearnPad system. Please let us know if there is anything more we can do to support you.

    Games are the perfect way to teach programming and it is how I learnt, so yours is a project close to my heart.
