Low cost tablet PCs for Rotorua pupils

A Rotorua school will be providing each of its students with a tablet computer device at minimal cost to parents.


Auckland's Orewa College is making iPads, laptops or their equivalent part of the compulsory stationery list for its Year 9 students from next year.


That move provoked a backlash from parents and others in the community who said it would place even more financial strain on already struggling families.


However, Rotorua's Kaitao Middle School is aiming to provide each of its 500 pupils with a tablet as the school moves its focus to e-learning.

In the year following the upgrade we reduced the number of hours we needed to employ technical support. The speed of the network permits much faster data transfer as evidenced by speedier upgrades of software. Teachers appreciate being able to access the network across the school site, in every corner of the campus. This year we installed a third full computer suite following the rewiring of the campus.
