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 have a byod class of year 7&8. We use netbooks and a mixture of android and Ipad devices. My experience is that netbooks (and of course chromebooks) are fine with google docs but when it comes to more creative forms of learning ipads win hands down. I myself have androids because of the price. Give an ipad a bluetooth keyboard case and you effectively have a netbook. If money wasn't a big consideration I would definitely go ipad with bluetooth keyboard case. This solves the loose keyboard problem and gives a nice stand.
    My favorite apps for using are explain everything, book creator, google drive suite, imovie and microsoft 365. This is why I wonder whether chrone books would do the job. I would be checking out the chrome web store very carefully before buying chromebooks.
    I hope this helps
