We are in the process of purchasing new devices for our Year 7/8 classes for 2015.

I am wanting to know what peoples views/experiences are with using either Chromebooks or ipads?

What are the advantages/disadvantages of using them.

Kia ora ano

    I always find these discussions interesting - learning why one school has gone one way and not another.

    I think that it's important to firstly figure out what you want from a device (and why) and go from there comparing devices, trying them out if you can. Every school is different and has different needs. Some schools choose one device, others allow any device, and some use one device for juniors and one for seniors. All have valid reasons for doing what they did.

    It's also important to remember that devices change/improve/get updated and needs change. Device choice may be something that is revisited regularly as new ones enter the market or pedagogical changes happen in the school meaning that the device you initially chose no longer meets your requirements.
