Concerns
 “Haves versus Have-nots”
пЃ± By allowing a variety of tablet specification,
this problem will be greatly reduced.
пЃ± All materials will be made available in hard
copy format to those without access.
пЃ± Boys without personal devices will benefit
from those around them.
Concerns
пѓј Security and Theft
пЃ± Firm and clear protocols for safe-keeping (eg)
пЃ± Smaller devices fit in blazers.
пЃ± With regular use, it is unlikely that the device
will be left unattended or in a vulnerable
place.
пЃ± A safe-bag area is available during all school
activities (Extra-curricular, Phys Ed.).
Concerns
пѓј Inappropriate use of the tablet
пЃ± School, Subject and Class protocols and rules
in place.
пЃ± Serious sanctions for transgressions.
 Device “fatigue” will reduce time spent on
games outside of class.
пЃ± Productive use of the tablet in lesson time will
limit temptation.
Concerns
пѓј Sample protocols
 No learner should be using any other student’s
tablet at any time.
 Tablets should be on silent and “Flight Mode”
during class time to ensure only educational apps
and programmes are utilized. (Phase 1 only)
пЃ± All devices should be code-locked and have a
picture of the owner as the lock screen
background.
Concerns
пѓј Sample Protocols (2)
пЃ± All devices should be within reach and/or sight of
the owner at all times.
 “Safe” Rooms where equipment and tablets may
be stored during extra-mural activities are
available.
пЃ± Students will have access to tablet tracking
software (via 3G or Phase 2 WiFi)
What will it cost?
пѓј Text books are available on a variety of
platforms, depending on the publisher.
пѓј Books may be either in e-book or e-pdf
format. Licences vary.
пѓј Workbooks, previously charged for by the
school, will be FREE in PDF format.
What will I save?
пѓј All textbooks prescribed by the school for
2014 are available in electronic format.
пѓј Savings will vary per Grade and Subject
Choice in Grades 10-12.
пѓј Certain Grade 10 & 11 subjects have
optional State-provided textbooks.
