RET could use your old phone.

Did you get a new cell phone for Christmas? Do you have a plan for that old cell phone? RET could use that old phone and you could benefit from making a donation to our school. We want to create a Virtual Reality lab for our students to take virtual field trips and watch and create 360 degree videos. We would like 25 devices to create a class set to be shared with all classes. Below are the specifications for Android or Apple devices that we could use. If you have any questions about making the donation or if your device will work, please contact Mr. Balding by email, gbalding@tuscumbia.k12.al.us, or leave a message with the office and he will get back to you as soon as possible.


Phone Specifications:

  • A good battery - battery holds a charge for at least one hour of watching videos
  • A gyroscope and accelerometer—essential for orientation and to see images shifting in a VR viewer
  • Android 4.4 and later or iOS 8.0 and later
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • A graphics processing unit (GPU) that can support 3D viewing
  • A high-resolution screen, 720p or 1080p 
  • 2 GB of RAM—3 GB or 4 GB would be better
  • 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz Wi-Fi support
