Although in some respects, choosing a device can be the easiest part of a POD programme, making sure that it’s the right one to meet the often seemingly contradictory requirements of the school, parents and students can be a challenge. While the latter often focus on aesthetics, teachers and parents tend to be more concerned with functionality and reliability. It’s also easy to get bogged down with discussions around technical specifications and form factors, particularly if the right work hasn’t been done around understanding how the devices will be used in the classroom to support teaching and learning.
Fortunately, Stott Hoare maintains business partner relationships with a number of key vendors to ensure that we have access to a wide range of devices to meet these needs and our significant experience and purchasing power means that we can help you choose the right device at the right price.
In our view, the difference between the business grade devices that we recommend and the consumer ranges found in many high street retailers is one of the critical reasons for choosing a POD partner like us. Our experience over the past four years with a number of different brands on model types has lead us to favour education specific models that have been designed to offer significant robustness (sometimes with full military specification testing) and full 3 year manufacturer warranties that we can supplement with our own pre-delivery and support services.
In many cases, these machines don’t necessarily appear to be the cheapest devices in terms of specification but when considered in terms of their all-round capability in terms of reliability, battery life, performance they represent excellent choices. That’s why we strongly recommend that schools take the time to build a functional requirements list and trial a number of devices to find the best fit. We can assist in both cases and can provide evaluation units on request.
