Jack Taylor, a newly qualified teacher, sent this inspiring feedback about our research to Tablets for Schools

… Tablets For Schools’ research on the impact of Tablets in the classroom is just beyond incredible. Everyone inside and outside of education should see this report…. I shall be sharing this research with my colleagues from my PGCE last year and encouraging them to share it at their schools. The sooner this is read by more and more teachers, head teachers and IT Departments, the better.

The verbatim comments and quotes from students, staff and parents alike were eye opening, real, honest and hugely positive. The majority made me nod my head in agreement and some even made me say ‘wow’…. Thank you for confirming that the future is bright for our education establishments.

FK&Y has published Stage 2 research findings from the Tablets for Schools research.

The report has been peer reviewed by our Pedagogy Advisors, including Professor Colleen Mclaughlin, University of Cambridge and University of Sussex, and Professor David Buckingham, University of Loughborough. Results show that it does not work to merely give Tablets to each child to use in school and at home. Schools need to have committed leadership and ‘device champions’ amongst staff and pupils to demonstrate the capability of the device. Professional development linked to the school’s chosen pedagogical objectives is essential. Advice on infrastructure, insurance, covers, and content is needed. For full results see here.
