Access to be provided to digital and online resources

The school library has a class set of desktops. There are two class sets of notebooks located at opposite ends of the school for access convenience. There is also a class set of iPads for students to use. Each classroom also has two desktops in it as well as a teacher’s computer. All classrooms have an interactive whiteboard (IWB) run by a separate central processing unit (CPU). Teachers use Quizlet (Quizlet, 2014) for language learning and the class teachers use Mathletics (3P Learning, 2014)

If one of the school’s priorities is to introduce more digital resources there are a number of issues to consider.  E-Books can incur different types of costs, depending on the usage or the subscription. The amount of potential users must be known as this may affect the cost.  Any license issues need to be sorted before purchase and the concern of where they will be stored and how they can be accessed needs to be sorted. This is not to say the school should not consider eBooks, they just have to be able to gauge support for them before use.
