History of Connect-Up

How we started helping schools with their ICT

A brief history of classroom technology

…and how Connect-Up fits into it

1

1700s

Writing slate

Small. Dusty. Cheap.

 

2

1850s

Chalkboard

Basic presentation and even more dusty.

Makes an annoying nose when scratched.

3

1950s

School Notebook

Small, portable, lightweight, but with limited storage and write-only capabilities.

4

1982

BBC Micro Desktop

One of the first PCs to be widely available in schools, and led to ICT being a popular subject

5

Mid 1990s

Whiteboards

Less messy and more colourful than a Chalkboard, still requires a volunteer to clean after class

6

2000

Connect-Up

Connect-Up opens to serve schools with their ICT requirements

7

Early 2000s

Smartboards

Interactivity and computer connectivity, good for films on the last day of term

 

8

2010

Apple iPad

From typing to research, to reading, when combined with a keyboard case, these tablets can help develop excellent ICT skills

9

2015

Like a giant tablet on the wall, these devices bring a whole world of possibilities along with dedicated apps and software
