Technology in schools

Many schools are introducing advanced educational technology into classrooms. We have been supplying interactive whiteboards and software for a number of years and welcome requests for technological equipment.

  • Interactive whiteboards: we have relationships with various interactive whiteboard manufacturers such as Smart Technologies, Cleverboard and Genee Technologies. However, if you have another board in mind, please do not hesitate to contact us.
  • Interactive solutions: many companies are introducing products to turn ordinary whiteboards into interactive ones. These are attached to the wall above or to the side of your standard whiteboard. Smart Technologies, Genee and Dymo offer such products.
  • Accessories: projectors, slates, response systems and visualisers from companies such as Smart Technologies, Genee Technologies, Samsung and AVerMedia are all great assets to an interactive classroom.
  • Interactive tables: Smart Technologies and Innovative Educational Resources UK Ltd both offer great interactive tables for nurseries.
  • Software and eBooks: we work with companies such as Sherston, Boardworks and many publishers to ensure we can offer a range of software to compliment your interactive whiteboard. We are also able to handle the procurement of eBooks, both in CD and download format.
  • Netbooks and tablets for the school: the Fizzbook Spin has become known as ‘the laptop for pupils’. Being a laptop designed for the classroom it is both practical and durable. We are also able to source tablets for schools.
