Tablets in schools double in 2014
Schools are contributing to the upswing in the sales of tablet computers, with their numbers in classrooms more than doubling in the UK and US in the past year, figures reveal.
Research released by the British Education Suppliers Association (BESA), shows that the number of tablets in England’s schools is expected to reach 260,000 by the end of this year, up from 100,000 in 2012. The group has predicted that nearly a third of all students will have access to a tablet by 2020. It has been noted that students with access to tablets in schools tend to spend their break playing games, thereby failing to participate physical activities such as sports.
Dealing with inappropriate online content on tablets
Tablet management for schools (part of the enterprise technology programme) is designed to help schools protect tablets from inappropriate use by students and promote physical engagement activities such as sports by specifying time limits on electronic devices.
In addition to monitoring and locking down devices from inappropriate content, schools can centrally manage tablets to install educational apps, ensuring compliance policies. Learn more.
