ICT Storage and trends in Education report from LapCabby

At LapCabby we love chatting to individuals from every corner of the education space, from educators and teachers, to IT managers and schools coordinators.

Hearing from the users of device charging and syncing services is imperative, as who better to judge ICT storage than those using it?

We took the opportunity at BETT 2016 to pick some EdTech brains, and we uncovered some thought-provoking findings on the proliferation of mobile devices in the classroom and ICT storage trends.

Here’s a quick snippet of our findings, but for all the ins-and-outs and detailed insight on our latest research, download the full Survey Report here.

BYOD vs 1:1

We asked respondents with reference to their schools, colleges and other institutions, which initiatives they had in place. From running a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) plan to rolling out a 1:1 scheme, no matter the devices or initiatives chosen, students, teachers and technical teams must be on board and appropriate infrastructure in place.

So, what did we find? 33% of those surveyed said they currently have a BYOD initiative in place – and you can read the rest in our full report.

Devices, devices, devices…

We’ve covered what’s going on right now – but as with the advances in technology, the digital classrooms of today (and indeed the future) must continuously grow and develop to accommodate the new opportunities and techniques available for education. So looking ahead, we asked, “What type of device are you most likely to purchase in the future?”

This popularity of implementing, new or additional, tablets into the digital classrooms of the future, aligns with recent reports from TechRadar on the research conducted by the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA). The report predicts considerable growth in the education technology market with tablets at the core stating, “There will be nearly a million tablets in UK schools alone by 2016.”

Don’t leave ICT Storage as an afterthought

Although building on the arsenal of devices available to students is key in aligning with new curriculums and technologies, considerations for the facilities and services in place supporting this are just as, if not more, important.
