Laptops for Home Learning

Under the current circumstances school pupils have to do much of their learning online, but there are many who are disadvantaged by having no access or shared access to their essential learning. These Rotary projects are trying to help.

Rotary Clubs in Southern Wales have projects in their communities where they will collect laptops repurpose them and give them to a local school for use by disadvantaged pupils to access learning from home.  If you have a laptop that you would like to donate please contact a club in your locality from the list below.

Laptops most suitable are working and undamaged with a power supply (power supply can be provided if needed).  The Laptop should be capable of running Windows Vista or newer operating system (usually find this on a sticker on the bottom).  More technically any 64bit processor should work with a minimum of 2Gb memory.

The procedure most commonly used is where the disc drive is removed and either destroyed physically or returned to the donor, so there is no issue with regards to data security.  A new SSD drive is installed and ChromeOS is installed on the new drive turning the Laptop into a Chromebook equivalent that is able to access tools and all learning online.  Any difference to this will be highlighted on the individual link below.

NB* Some carers are in the same position having to access online resources without access to technology.
