Case Study - Clacton High School
Clacton County High School is a mixed comprehensive school of approximately 1600 students aged between 11 and 18 years. In order to meet growing demand for access to ICT at the school they invested in five Mini Mentor™ mobile laptop management cabinets from LapSafe® Products.
Flexibility and functionality to deliver ICT curriculum in a mobile learning environment.
Jeff Brindle, Principle of Clacton County extols “We couldn’t deliver the curriculum without LapSafe®. Access to the power of mobile learning technology is helping to make this vision become real for students at the school”.
The LapSafe® cabinets have given Clacton County High School the flexibility and functionality they needed to support the use of ICT across the curriculum by providing a self contained mobile solution, whilst providing a high level of security for their valuable IT resource. Members of the teaching staff are very confident in the product and find it easy to use and highly reliable, working extremely well with their Ergo HardCase Pro 421 laptops. In particular they appreciate the SmartLine™ charging system, which makes the deployment of laptops into the classroom much quicker as there is no need to use the laptop's original AC adaptor.
Jeff Brindle comments “The use of LapSafe® cabinets provides us with great flexibility to deliver the curriculum in the most effective and innovative way possible. The growing capacity of the school and the increasing demands using ICT to enhance and personalise learning for students meant we had outgrown our existing 10 network rooms. In order to meet the demands from both staff and students for greater access to computer technology the use of wireless laptops together with our five Mini Mentor SmartLine™ cabinets offered us the only viable solution”.
A feature greatly appreciated by Jeff Brindle is the fact that LapSafe® cabinets can be upgraded as the school's needs change. He also sees great potential in moving away from dedicated ICT suites in favour of the more versatile option of laptops managed and shared using LapSafe® Cabinets.
LapSafe® Products are proud of the part they play in delivering ICT to the students of Clacton County High School. We continually strive to provide functional and flexible solutions to further enhance the students learning capabilities and surpass customer expectation.
