In the Swiss educational landscape, pupils are increasingly confronted with equipment requirements that cannot be met on a small budget.
The classic here is a built-in touch screen, which is required in many cases, but is not didactically necessary.
Possibilities of a touchscreen
The former is practical, the latter is not necessary in many professions. In principle, however, many jobs can also be done with a mouse and keyboard without noticeable disadvantages.
The big disadvantage
We only have a limited number of laptops with touch screens. Therefore, we can only provide these few devices to apprentices and students of professions for which this is absolutely necessary (e.g. visual arts).
Here is a selection of possible products (as of May 2023):
Other options can easily be found on the Internet by searching for "graphics tablets". Useful models are available from CHF 50.
However, these graphics tablets are not included in the scope of delivery of our devices. Therefore, please note the additional prices if, for example, cost credits have to be obtained in advance.
The following video shows how to work with a graphics tablet:
This is how you can decide
If it is mandatory for a laptop to have a built-in touch screen and we have informed you that we cannot provide a device with a touch screen, you will need to obtain a device through another source.
Many schools now work with the platform edu.ch together. Even though these prices are much higher than our small contribution to expenses, edu.ch is a most cost-effective alternative - and usually schools also offer discounts for certain devices.
