It is wonderful to see that nearly every Year 9 student has a laptop device and is bringing it to school. This will mean that their teachers can plan with certainty and regularly use them in their lessons.
A significant number of Year 9 parents have bought their child’s device through Greytown-based supplier, SchooledUpIT.
SchooledUpIT can supply an Acer c730e Chromebook with a specially strengthened case, a neoprene sleeve, on a payment plan to suit your budget and couriered free to your home for $499.00.
A Chromebook laptop is an ideal device for students to use in all aspects of their learning at college. Chromebooks are app based and do not have disc drives, fans and lots of unnecessary software. They operate using Google and every document created on a Chromebook is automatically saved to the users’ Google Drive in the clouds.
Get your Chromebook here.
