Tips for Choosing the Right Device

Consider the needs of your students and teachers based on learning environment, functionality, manageability, and costs.1

Learning and teaching platforms need to provide the best support for a broad range of ages and activities while being cost-effective, manageable, and secure. Ask yourself the right questions and consider learning environment, functionality, cost, and operating system when choosing devices to meet your needs.

What to ask when looking for the right education device:

Learning Environment

  • Can it handle your curriculum-based digital content and tools?
  • Will it support both online and offline learning?
  • Will it support new learning models?
  • Does it enable peripherals and other devices?

Device Functionality

  • Does it allow students and teachers to get their work done effectively?
  • Is there enough battery life for the school day?
  • Is the screen size adequate to support student tasks?
  • Can it handle productivity software and web applications?

Manageability and Deployment

  • How do you protect your investment?
  • Is it intended for institutional use?
  • Does it have appropriate security management features?
  • Will it protect the privacy of student data?

Cost Considerations

  • Support, maintenance, storage, charging, and repair
  • Software, apps, and content
  • Peripherals and replacement purchases
  • Education training, 1:1 adoption time, professional development

Size the Performance You Need
