iPads @ B.H.P.S.
The iPad program at Barwon Heads Primary School is aimed at inspiring creativity and hands-on learning utilising a device with features that are rare to other educational tools. Students are excited and enthusiastic in their usage of these tools, which proactively engage them in their learning with hands-on multimedia features. Apps are carefully selected from the App Store, which will allow students to engage with content in interactive ways, find information quickly, and access libraries of information in a quick and convenient way. The iPad program at B.H.P.S supports teaching and learning in and beyond the classroom.
Why the iPAD?
Teachers can facilitate a change in student workflow through the multimedia capabilities of the device. This can include the design of digital eBooks and iMovies. Through the Apple Store teachers and students have access to over 500 000 apps of which 200 000 are designed specifically for educational purposes.
