A delivery of laptops gifted to students at Blue Gate Fields Infants School in Tower Hamlets marked the landmark moment of 110,000 #BridgeTheDivide devices distributed by LGfL - the National Grid for Learning.
Supporting Waltham Forest Council and Heathcote School in their 'no child left behind' initiative, we have worked together to #BridgeTheDivide and ensure access to teaching and learning for all.
Increased device to learner ratios opens up new opportunities to support every learner in their leading activities. This video explains how a range of LGfL learning services can further enhance the value for money aspect of the programme.

Cloud on a budget - making the most of what you already have access to in school
LGfL Content Manager, Bob Usher, explains all the variety of ways you can maximise devices to support effective and inclusive approaches to everyday teaching and learning including:
One to one learner to device ratios
Teacher device only (e.g. learners have no device)
Enough to support group work (e.g. 5 devices per class)
...and every variation in between!
