Do you have any old unused laptops that you no longer use?
There are still a lot of children in the local area who are unable to access their online learning due to a shortage of devices. Older laptops can be converted into Chrome Books that will enable pupils to learn from home.
The Chrome Books for Schools Project aims to provide as many converted Chrome Books as possible to those who need them but we need your help!
If you would like to help please can you:
1. Consider if you have any old personal laptops you may no longer be using that you could donate. They need to be laptops (5 years and older) and not iPads or tablet devices.
2. Ensure that the device is definitely unwanted and has been wiped of any personal information.
3. Take your device to Security Hub (previously known as the Gatehouse) on campus who will be accepting donations from 10-2pm on the following dates: Thursday 15th, 22nd and 29th April.
4. Please include your name and contact email address along with your laptop and don't forget the charger cable!
5. Please also let your friends know if you think they might have an old laptop to donate!
What happens next?
All donated devices will be inspected and wiped clean of all data before being converted to a Chrome Book by the team of Technology Volunteers.
Once converted the Chrome Books will then be distributed to schools in the local area.
