completely agree “@ProfTentacles: #ukedchat easiest way to
cut down computer costs in school is to encourage students to use
their phones.â€
ICTmagic20:02@jlubinsky Does that effect the performance of the devices?#ukedchatteamjacklin20:02Best way to run Tech on a shoe string is restraint, use existinginfrastructure to its full. Extend tech refresh periods #ukedchatnickotkdIV20:02@ProfTentacles how does that work in primary #ukedchatPage 1 of 50

More workstationsfor less cost. #ukedchatICTmagic20:02@nickotkdIV Can you give more details about borrowing from thefeeder school? Sounds like a good idea. #ukedchatnickotkdIV20:02#ukedchat i have also heard of school where they ask for parentalcontributions and make a sort of contract to help funding josepopoff20:03Students in general own devices, let´s teach them productive use.#ukedchatchrismayoh20:03RT @ICTEvangelist: Interested in collaborative Digital leadersnetwork across schs?

Good PR for secondary and no outlay forprimary.ethinking20:03#ukedchat tech on a shoestring misses the point - we need to docost benefit analysis on all School activities - tech, display, hwk,peopleMrsMyers_20:03@ejw232 @ICTmagic #ukedchat how long are the contracts?illdoittomorrow20:03#ukedchat We have used our VLE to link to iPods.

How many? #ukedchat @ICTmagicICTmagic20:04@nickotkdIV I will need to investigate that avenue. #ukedchatchrismayoh20:04Don't mean to bring up the obvious but not everyone will have kitfor #BTOD scheme #ukedchatPhilWheeler120:04Cut paper & printing by online marking #ukedchat. I use Edmodo tohelp http://t.co/Z80XQy1cethinking20:04#ukedchat @teamjacklin @ictmagic no can of worms - just realchildren and what they do - its what we need to see instead of hiding itMrsMyers_20:04@teamjacklin @ICTmagic am finding this as it can isolate somestudents who don't have the hardwre or whose hardware isn't upto it #ukedchatEducationchat20:04#ukedchat Tesco's vouchers allow school to get free stuff. Only50,000 vouchers for one re-writeable CD! Bargain! jlubinsky20:04@ICTmagic Depends. We don't use them in lab environmentswhere software usage is more intense. Classroom computer podsare ideal. #ukedchatnickotkdIV20:05#ukedchat it sounds bad but i know we compete and enter foranything that is free #ukedchatSheliBB20:05RT @ukedchat: "Tech on a shoe-string - What are your top tips forkeeping in the black while budgets are shrinking?"

It allows for growth on many levels.#ukedchatmattbritland20:05@josepopoff #ukedchat I completely agree with this. As teachersit's our responsibility to deliver this sort of thing.JazzieDe20:05@eslweb Good idea if in walking distance otherwise transport coststoo much! Also need secondary wanting to work with you!#ukedchatnickotkdIV20:05@ICTmagic sure #ukedchatukedchat20:05Joining #ukedchat tonight? Remember to unprotect your tweetsand use the #ukedchat hashtag. josepopoff20:06One of the major issues with #BYOD is digital divide. #ukedchatethinking20:06#ukedchat to cite @stephenheppell rock up, take your shoes off and bring a browserICTmagic20:06Has anyone has experience of buying tech cheaper as a consortiumof schools?
