  • Chromebooks make a difference in lockdown

Chromebooks purchased by the Genesis School-gen Trust and given out the day before lockdown meant 200 students could stay connected with their teacher and continue their learning. Most importantly they meant the students didn’t risk falling behind.

In this video the Trust met up with Angelica, one of the recipients of a Chromebook, and heard what it meant to her to be able to keep learning. Russell Burt, a founder of the Manaiakalani Education Trust which was pivotal in identifying students who were in need and in organising the distribution, also talks about his experience of delivering the devices and what it means to the students and their families.
