Buckinghamshire School Implements Meru Networks18 January 2012 17:43:00
A school in Buckinghamshire is one of the first in the UK to have adopted Meru Network’s wireless technology in tandem with Bradford’s Network Sentry Network Access Control, as a total wireless solution for its year 9, 10 and Sixth Form students.
Beaconsfield High School in Buckinghamshire has taken the decision to go wireless, allowing students aged 13 to 18 to bring their own devices and mobile phones to school to access the school’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The mathematics department was the first to utilise the technology, followed by the communal Sixth Form areas.
Head Teacher, Owain Jones has said: “We are constantly looking at ways to innovate and educate using the very latest technology, and the concept of pupils bringing their own devices to school to use as educational tools is simply the next step in that evolution.”
