The Head of my Science has asked me to come up with some recomendations as to what we should ask for in the way of IT equipment for the science department. In particular, she wants some amunition about what other schools have so we can justify it.

What should I be asking for in order to bring us up to par with most schools?

As I don’t even have a computer or network access in my classroom, I’m sure some fellow science teachers can provide examples of better equipped science departments.

We will be getting access to a room with 14 computers to share between the various science classes. How does this rate against the standard?

How many classes have data projectors set up?
Does anyone use Smart Boards or similar?

What schools have laptops provided to teachers?

Any assistance welcome.
