In the Shiny project we have purchased a fair bit of kit and have been rolling out it across the curriculum over the last few months.

Our 1500 Activexpression mobile learner response systems went out in December and January and are now been used across different subjects.

Due to supply issues our original order of Nintendo DS were replaced with the new Nintendo Dsi which (I am secretly pleased about) that are been used to support numeracy and literacy key skills in Health & Social Care, Motor Vehicle Engineering and now Plumbing.

Concerns about security and wonky wheels have delayed the deployment of our UMPCs but they should be out any day now. In the meantime from ourt spare stock we have given various learners and staff UMPCs to use for learning and preparation.

One oops problem. We ordered some Samsung Q1s and for some reason the ones we ordered have come without cameras which were the primary reason for purchasing this device. Due to supply issues we hadn’t ordered as many as original hoped, currently ordering replacements.
