Learning with iPads

The use of an iPad in the classroom is allowing a new way to deliver lessons and engage with students. iPads can be used by an individual student, a group of students or a whole classroom.  They are portable, quick and easy to use and encourage problem solving, critical thinking and information fluency.  iPads are used across all year levels to engage and motivate students and to make learning more accessible for students with disabilities, they also allow for the creation of new tasks previously inconceivable without such devices.

Some examples of how these devices are used to assist learning include:
  • Researching of topics
  • Note taking
  • Drill and practice activities
  • Crafting presentations
  • Manipulating objects to make calculations
  • Constructing animations and movies
  • Coding and robotics
  • Brainstorming
  • Collaboration with peers
  • Explaining and recording learning
  • Viewing educational videos
Further information on the program is available in the following documents:
