TAHB has recently become a Google-powered school, harnessing the power of the world-class Google Education platform, which has been purposefully designed for learning, using robust, reliable and affordable devices, called Google ChromebooksTAHB highly recommends that you purchase an ACER Chromebook to provide your child to with the best possible learning opportunity. These revolutionary devices are seamlessly integrated via Google Single-Sign-On (SSO) with our Distance Learning environment, Cambridge On-Line Learning Support, which employs flipped-classrooms lessons delivered at/from/to our Hout Bay campus.  While there are many good reasons to purchase a Chromebook, we believe that these three reasons are the most convincing reasons to invest in a Chromebook for your child;
  1. FREEDOM to learn: No distractions, no advertising, no social media, no inappropriate content will be available/visible on our Chromebooks.
  2. VALUABLE: South Africa’s most cost-effective device, incl. 24/7 support and the Acer Reliability Promise 3-year warranty
  3. INSTANT & CONSTANT: ON/Updated within 10 seconds, forever, with an all-day battery life (safely leave your cables at home, every day)

Of course, while online safety is built into the Chrome Operating System, as an extra layer of protection, every device is shipped with MobileGuardian, the family-friendly software solution to protect your child from online threats, and help us to manage their devices, as educational resources.  To ensure that TAHB can deploy, manage and curate the content on your child’s device, every Chromebook ships with a perpetual Chrome Device Management license, MobileGuardian and an ACER extended 3-year warranty.

TAHB has carefully selected two devices for students and staff, which we believe are the best value proposition, that will serve all their ICT needs for the duration of their educational journey at TAHB and even beyond, once they graduate and go onto college, their device may continue to provide them with all the functionality they need to learn effectively and efficiently, as they take their device with them, after unlinking it from the TAHB G Suite platform. 
These are the ACER R11 and the ACER Spin11 (incl. a stylus for those who want to write/draw free-hand).
