  • IWB RIPWidescreen Interactive Projections
  • IWB RIPEpson WIP Disadvantages You cant drive with your finger and have to use a pen, They are probably not so well suited wall-mounted to theKS1/ KS2 environment. You can only save interactive drawings at PDF/JPEGthrough Epson tools which means you cant edit at a laterdate.
  • IWB RIPEpson WIP Teaching Advantages They can be WIFI – can link with staff mobile devices There is pin-point accuracy and edge to edge interactivitywith no lag time when drawing. It is still possible to use the Smart Software The image is larger than a usual IWB - up to 100 inches. You can use two pens so two people can drivesimultaneously. They can be used on a tabletop - great for KS1/KS2.
  • IWB RIPEpson WIP Networking Advantages They can be remotely monitored and feedback to networkteam The replacement bulbs are significantly cheaper(just under £50) They have double the lamp hours They dont need recalibrating.

  • 1. The School will require pupils to have amobile device (all? Y10 up?)Implications Advantages DisadvantagesFor Teaching Teachers can go into aclassroom knowing whatfunctionality and softwarepupils have available to them.Some teachers will bethreatened by pupils havingmobile devices and Internetaccess.For theNetworkThe network will need to havesufficient capacity and besufficiently reliable to copewith demandFor theBudgetIt is cheaper to configure anetwork where the type ofdevice is standard.Other factorsto considerSchools need to put in thenecessary infrastructurebefore embarking on this.Where are the pupils going tocharge their devices?
  • 2. The School will have a “standard issue”mobile deviceImplications Advantages DisadvantagesFor Teaching Teachers can go into aclassroom knowing whatfunctionality and softwarepupils have available to them.A single device may not bepopular or serve all needs.Different teachers/ departmentswill favour different devices toenhance their teaching.For theNetworkIt is much easier to configurea network where the type ofdevice is standard.The School is tied into a“standard issue” device andupgrades not possible until thenext purchase round, which islikely to be up to five years.For theBudgetIt is cheaper to configure andmaintain a network where thetype of device is standard.
  • 3a. The mobile device will be personal.Implications Advantages DisadvantagesFor Learning Pupils will use the samedevice at home as at school.Pupils can use the deviceanywhere.For Teaching Each pupil will have their owndevice with them. Teachersdon’t need to “book” themobile devices for lessonsFor theNetworkPurchase and maintenancecosts fall on parents (eitherdirectly or built into fees)Pupils will customise them, puton their own software; risk ofviruses, misuse etc.Other factorsto considerBattery recharging
  • 3b. The mobile device will be shared.Implications Advantages DisadvantagesFor Learning Pupils may not have access tokey software and files fromhome.For Teaching Teachers need to “book” themobile devices for lessons.For theNetworkNetwork team have totalcontrol of the devices on theschool network.Network team are responsiblefor maintenance of the mobiledevices.For theBudgetSchools gets best value out ofthe devices.Purchase and maintenancecosts fall on StaffDamage atschool, Insurance, BatterychargingHaving replacement devices instock.
  • 4a. The School will own the deviceImplications Advantages DisadvantagesFor Teaching Teachers can go into aclassroom knowing whatfunctionality and softwarepupils have available to them.Different teachers/ departmentswill favour different devices toenhance their teaching.For theNetworkThe network team canconfigure the device to astandard specification.For theBudgetSchools can bulk purchasedevices and get best valueOther factorsto considerSchool is responsible forcharging, damage, insurance.Upgrades would have to happenon a 5 year basis.
  • 4b. The Parents will own the deviceImplications Advantages DisadvantagesFor theNetworkThe network team don’t haveto maintain and repair thedevice.Parents may purchase thewrong device.Parents may object to Schoolvirus protection and softwarebeing put on the device.For theBudgetThe cost of the device isborne by parents.Other factorsto considerDamage at school, Insurance,Replacement may take time,
  • 5a. The School will supply the deviceImplications Advantages DisadvantagesFor Teaching Teachers can go into aclassroom knowing whatfunctionality and softwarepupils have available to them.A single device may not bepopular or serve all needs.Different teachers/ departmentswill favour different devices toenhance their teaching.For theNetworkThe network team canconfigure the device to astandard specification.For theBudgetSchools can bulk purchasedevices and get best value
