BYOD Equity Pilot

In February 2014, the 2020 Trust launched a pilot BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programme to assist families at Computers in Homes schools access digital devices for their children. Many schools are embarking on BYOD programmes and we are concerned that families on low incomes might not be able to afford the cost of buying devices for their children.  Our approach is to use the same systems we have set up to help families afford internet connections.  This involves negotiating discounted prices with suppliers and then offering the services/products to families with a weekly payment plan, spread over 12-24 months. We have invited Computers in Homes schools who have wireless infrastructure and BYOD policies in place to join the scheme and invite a class group to participate.
