Nearly 50,000 school children in Glasgow are to get their own iPad to help with lessons.
The project will see every pupil from primary school year 6 up to the last year of secondary school given their own device to keep, while all other pupils will have shared access to the Apple tablet.
Faster internet connections and installing wi-fi in every classroom is also part of the initiative.
The iPad rollout is part of a seven-year deal between Glasgow City Council and Canadian IT firm CGI. The entire deal is worth more than £300m. All the iPads will be tracked and managed by the council, which can lock, erase or render the devices inoperable remotely. Pupils can access the internet, but not any social media sites, and the council says its firewall will block any inappropriate sites.
Students will be responsible for the device and if lost, damaged or stolen then the pupil will need to contact the school immediately. Pupils will continue to use books and note pads in class in addition to the tablets.
Custom Labels make several high-quality asset labels that help to securely track and trace any high-value assets such as iPads. The Tamperproof Ultra Destruct Asset Label is perfect for all office environments. These labels are made from tough to remove Ultra Destruct Vinyl (TAMPERPROOF). The destructible vinyl hardens to provide a label that will fragment on attempted removal, the print has UV, abrasion and medium chemical resistance.
