- 68% of primary and 69% of secondary schools now use tablets in the classroom.
- 45% of those schools who don’t use tablets aim to introduce them within the next few years.
- The number of tablets in schools is expected to hit 900,000 by late 2016, up from 430,000 in 2014.
- Head Teachers of schools using tablets have reported a positive impact on results.
With technology playing an ever increasing role in education and learning, we feel like now is the perfect time to bring the benefits of the iBeani to classrooms across the country.
