It’s Grade 6 and its looking like its going to be a great year…
School Captains and House Captains, Grade 6 Camp and the new and exciting Bring Your Own Device or One to One iPads in Grade 5 and 6.
We are very excited in Info Lit to be part of such a ground breaking initiative…
We look forward to our first lesson when we get to personalise the new devices ready for learning, communicating, investigating and creating.
Here’s what a few of the teachers have been saying…
‘The iPad is the ultimate all in one device, when I used to do movie making with grade 5 we would spend weeks with multiple pieces of equipment and different software before we had our finished product. Now we can make a movie in an afternoon and that is just the beginning…’ Mrs McKee
‘Each student can use their iPad to take their learning in their own direction – to follow their passions.’ Ms McLeod
‘The iPads are an additional opportunity to engage students, make it more relevant and improve educational achievements.’ Mrs Brough
‘With every student having an iPad, we have the ability to present our students so many new and amazing opportunities to learn.’ Mr Kenny
‘The kids in 6MA have been really excited about using their ipads in class. We have written our holiday letters on them, designed posters for our school values on them and added many events into our calendar to help keep us organised. We are all really enthusiastic to keep using the ipads to help us with our learning.’ Miss Morgan
