Computer Ownership Information EveningCome along to our information evening on Tuesday, 8 July to find out more about the Computer for Students scheme we will be running from September and the devices on offer for Years 7, 8, 9 and 10. Information talks will be held in the Lecture Theatre every 20 minutes, commencing at 4.30pm until 8pm. We urge you to attend to ensure your child is equipped with the latest technology for September 2014.
The deployment of ICT as a learning tool at the Academy has been a central part of our educational vision for a number of years. The current laptop device your child uses has come to the end of its 3 year life span and with your support we aim to replace this with the very latest tablet technology from Microsoft.
As you will be aware from communication in the last two newsletters, from this September the Academy will be inviting you to buy into our Computer for Students scheme where you will be able buy into our bespoke ownership scheme, for a small monthly payment. The benefits of buying into this scheme are that we can reduce costs with our greater buying power whilst providing a machine that will be fully insured and maintained by us and having access to the very latest learning applications.
On Tuesday, 8 July information talks will be held in the Lecture Theatre every 20 minutes, commencing at 4.30pm until 8pm. These talks will explain in detail what the scheme is about and the options available to you and your child. We will also be running demo lessons, showing what is possible with these next generation tablet devices and how owning this device will positively impact upon your child’s education. These sessions will run throughout the evening in the Plaza spaces.
In order to ensure that you are provided with as much information as possible, we will also have Tablet Manufactures present throughout the evening, who will be able to provide you with the opportunity to view a number of devices, as well as answer any technical question you may have.
We look forward to meeting you on the evening for this exciting development and to answer any questions that you may have.
