Tablets for Schools is a registered charity that believes technology can transform education. It commissions the world's largest independent research programme on how tablets can impact learning and attainment and uses this research as a basis for best practice and guidance for schools.
It can be a minefield for schools looking to introduce tablets, from having a vision for how they want to use the technology in the classroom, through to knowing what Wifi, financing, and insurance to adopt, through to training up staff and pupils and changing the way they teach and learn.
Tablets for Schools' mission is to champion effective implementation of tablets in schools, so that every child in the country can have access to this technology to transform the way they learn and to significantly improve children's engagement and attainment.
The charity is backed by headteachers, schools, academics, and government and Carphone Warehouse and Dixons are proud to be founding partners. Other partners include Google, Virgin Media, Pearson, Samsung and Talk Talk.
The charity's research has highlighted significant benefits from using 1:1 tablets in schools, including:
