1:1 Chromebooks

Our first week back at school has started well with many of our Year 4-6 children turning up with their own chromebook. Some children are waiting for the next Noel Leeming (NLG) shipment to arrive later this month.

This term children and teachers will be focusing on 'kawa of care' - looking after their device and keeping themselves safe in a digital environment.
It has been pleasing to see children using their devices before 9am. This means learning is not just a 9am-3pm experience, learning can take place anywhere at anytime - ubiquitous (present everywhere or in several places simultaneously).

One issue we have come across are devices that have been purchased outside of the GCSN or NLG student bundle deal. These devices do not have the Google management console which allows the school to manage devices effectively. We have to order the licenses through NLG which can take up to 2 weeks. Once we have the license we are able to configure the device to operate on our school system.
