I work in a mixed comprehensive school in a market town in Devon. It is a lovely school with a great buzz about it. The thing I love most about the school is that despite appearances (we were unfortunate enough to miss out at the last minute on a shiny new building) it is a very forward thinking place where experiments are encouraged and change is embraced.
It was the prospect of a new-build that saw us on our way towards a 1:1 device system. And when the plans fell through our Assistant Head in charge of New Technologies decided to take the idea forward regardless, and so here we are!
Every pupil in my mixed ability year 9 French group has one, and another 7 year 11 pupils who take French as an extra GCSE. Quite a few teachers have also chosen to take part, and we will have the devices till Easter. This blog will follow our progress
