Hi all

We are about to extend our BYOD proramme to 1to1 for Y5/6 and optional for Y3/4.  Our pilot programme this year has been 1to1 iPad/iPad mini which has been highly successful.  For next year we wish to extend our accepted devices to include 1-2 Chromebooks and 1-2 Android tablets.  Are there any that your school has/is using that you could recommend ?   We don't want to go any smaller in capability including screen size (7.9") than the iPad mini.

Thanks in advance

    Thanks all.  We will be replacing our leased netbooks with Chromebooks at the end of the year as yes we are a GAFE school and this is a much more user friendly device for our uses.  As we are doing this we will also offer chromebooks as a BYOD option.  Is is just what chromebook models?  Souds like Acer or HP is the way to go and min 3Gb Ram.  Same with Android devices, anyone had much experience in Androids in this environement?
