Tablets for Schools is a not-for-profit initiative that aims to enable all school children to have access to tablet technology to transform the way they learn. Our campaign is led by Carphone Warehouse, Dixons, Google, Virgin Media, Pearson, Samsung, Talk Talk and others, working in partnership with head teachers, schools, leading academics, charity and Government.

Introducing Tablets into a school, can be a minefield in terms of knowing what Wifi, financing, and insurance to adopt and selecting suitable content, before schools even start to think about how teaching and learning might change. Our focus continues to be to inspire schools, teachers and parents and provide a blueprint for them to adopt tablet technology; to help them change the way they teach and significantly improve children's engagement and attainment.
Tablets for Schools runs the largest independent research of its kind, looking at the impact of Tablets across 33 schools now. Thanks to a donation of 7,300 Nexus 7 devices from Google, the campaign is helping 13 secondary and primary schools to adopt Tablets.
