Installing CloudReady breathes new life into old hardware, enabling schools to get extra use out of devices that may otherwise sit collecting dust.
Neverware's CloudReady operating system is built to run on almost any computer from the last 10 years, turning them into fast, secure devices using the same technology foundation as Chrome OS.
Introduction to Neverware Cloud Ready
Each LGfL secondary school can claim 120 CloudReady licences (saving £1200), and each LGfL primary school or special school can claim 30 CloudReady licences (saving £300) as part of their existing LGfL subscription.
Each CloudReady licence comes bundled with a Chrome Education management licence, allowing you to unify device management via the Google Admin console. This has the following benefits:
Secure device management with the ability to apply policies across devices at the touch of a button (for example, automatically applying Wi-Fi settings across all devices)
The ability to customise device settings to enable and disable specific apps, such as social media sites, according to specific year groups and in line with school policies
Establishing an exam mode to lock down devices to specific sites or apps
The CloudReady and Chrome Education bundled licences are available to LGfL schools as part of their existing subscription, if you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are the benefits of using Cloud Ready by Neverware?
Will Smith from Neverware and Oli Trussell from LGfL explain the positive impact in the classroom from the adoption of the Cloud Ready product and the new confidence teachers have to use devices that previously had lost their value.
