Many people assume that ICT (Information and Communication Technology) is mainly for secondary schools and further education.
Headphones are essential for modern classrooms. They allow students to use interactive applications and create and listen to music alongside their peers. But equipping an entire suite isn’t straightforward.
Laptops are essential for modern schools. They give students access to the latest developments in learning applications and their portability means they can easily be moved around and between classrooms.
Cyber attacks are only something for big businesses to worry about. Hackers don’t target schools and colleges.

iPads are an essential part of any classroom. If you want to give your students the best possible educational experience then you can’t afford to be without them. From taking notes, making music , drawing pictures or diagrams, to sharing information with classmates, the slick functionality of an iPad is sure to get them fully engaged with any task.
The world has gone digital, and with it so have our classrooms. It’s not uncommon to see classrooms without a pen in sight. However, while typing is certainly a critical skill in the modern world, handwriting still maintains a number of advantages.
In this post we will look at some of the benefits of writing in school classrooms, we will then look at some ways to merge the digital with the physical in order to get the best of both worlds.
