The vast majority of websites are built for desktop computers and a huge amount of school websites are still resigned to the age before tablet computing. This is a big problem for parents and students trying to view your website.
Over the last 5 years there has been an explosion in tablet and mobile computing. With the Apple iPad launching in Ireland in 2010 and Android OS launching worldwide 3 years earlier, there is now a huge amount of people using tablets and mobile phones for both business and pleasure.
According to a study by the UK communications regulator, Ofcom, and our closest neighbour, 71% of children, aged 5 - 15 years had access to a tablet by the end of 2014. This is a huge statistic and something that is brand new in human history. Never before have so many children had access to low cost, high tech gadgets. At the same time 64% of parents own their very own tablet.
So, based on these official Ofcom figures, you can see how important it is to have your website mobile ready. Schoolsites build responsive websites, as standard, as computing on mobile phones, tablets, desktop computers and the laptop is the new standard.
Buying a wesite from schoolsites.ie means that you have the biggest chance to reach as many people as easily as possible. It also gives your visitors a user-friendly, fun experience on your website.
