Nearly all technology these days revolves around wireless connectivity and this includes devices that connect to your computer such as external storage or printers. Many new printers such as the HP OfficeJet 4500 come with wireless printing as standard. Most wireless printers have two ‘modes’ of wireless communication. Some will become a network attached device through a wireless router and some can connect ‘ad hoc’ to individual wireless enabled devices such as a laptop or iPad. However, should you have to upgrade your current printer just for the sake of going wireless?

Sidmouth College uses a programme called PaperCut to manage all 60 networked printers and photocopiers in and around the school. Students are given ‘£3.00’ of printer credit a week which enables them to print 30 A4 Black & White sheets or 6 A4 colour sheets to available devices. If students require more printing credit to print out school work or coursework then they can see their teacher who can give them printing vouchers – these come in ‘£10.00’ denominations and pupils can add these to their printing account. To do this, they can click ‘Details…’ on the balance screen which appears in the top right hand corner of their screen when they log-on. This will then prompt for their log on details again – once signed in, select ‘Redeem card’ and enter the unique alphnumeric sequence displayed on the card.
