Today every school in the country is using a tablet PC in some shape or form to enhance the learning environment.
Reports confirm that children are much more inclined to embrace education when they are learning using the latest technology and devices. It is proven that tablet PC’s and handheld gaming devices such as the Nintendo DS (Brain Training) have actually increased pupils performance and grades.
Yet, still many schools do not either use tablet PC’s or have enough tablet PC’s for their pupils to use.
Recent research suggest the reason schools don’t have more tablet PC’s is due to the costs of the devices, with the Samsung Galaxy and Apple iPads costing in excess of £300.
In addition, teachers and staff do not know what applications are available and which applications they should use.
With this in mind, Soltech IT in conjunction with members of the local education authority have put together a range of Verarien Android Tablet PC’s priced between £60 + VAT and £120 + VAT that come fully loaded with a whole selection of educational applications and SEN applications.
For the price of five iPads, a school can purchase tablet PC’s for an entire class and still use the same or similar applications.

The Minister of State for Digital Matt Hancock said: “Our Cyber Schools programme aims to inspire the talent of tomorrow and give thousands of the brightest young minds the chance to learn cutting-edge cyber security skills alongside their secondary school studies. I encourage all those with the aptitude, enthusiasm and passion for a cyber security career to register for what will be a challenging and rewarding scheme.”
From those who register their interest, students (aged between 14-18) will be selected for the programme via a pre-entry assessment. Teachers and industry experts are also being encouraged to get involved and register their interest in working with the programme.

"We have learnt that when children suffer from long-term illness, their corresponding isolation from friends makes it harder for them to recover and to come back to school when they feel better. We are also aware that developing speech and social skills is just as important as following the curriculum. When they are not a part of the social scene, children miss out on important learning through play and interaction.At No Isolation, the purpose of our technology is to help people alleviate the feeling of loneliness. We want to develop tools for the groups that need more than generic solutions. AV1 helps children with long-term illness to stay in touch with their friends, keep up with their education, and secure that crucial link to everyday life."
This fantastic concept's primary goal is to reduce loneliness amongst children suffering from long term health issues, however, the idea can only be a positive for their education and social skills. The AV-1 robot, which is controlled by the child through an app, allows the child to join in from a hospital bed or sofa at home. The robot acts as the 'eyes, ears and voice' of the child, with a blinking light ti signal when they want to say something and the ability to turn 360' to see and speak to the whole class.
