iPads in the classroom
The decision to move to iPads has come after a great deal of research, investigation, consideration and professional development and this process will continue throughout the implementation process and beyond. Many schools throughout Australia are now taking advantage of technological advancements of mobile and tablet style devices, such as iPads, and the multitude of educational Apps now available to support and enrich both students learning and teaching.
By introducing iPads to the 1:1 program John Therry Catholic High School aims to support all students in improving student engagement, participation and achievement. iPads are a powerful tool for collaboration, active participation, critical thinking, innovation and discovery. They allow students to personalise their learning to suit their individual needs, abilities and interests.
