BYO iPad Program 2018
Today’s children need not only basic education, but also the ability to deal with an increasingly complex and connected world. Many of the jobs available to our children today will be completely different to those in five and ten years time. To succeed, our students need to be active, not passive learners. They need to have the skills and motivation to be collaborative, creative, problem solvers who are highly skilled in using technologies where they have immediate access to quality information, instruction and communication.
Research shows that when students have their own device learning is more individualised. Students show increased independence with self-initiated learning extending way beyond the classroom. With students having ‘ownership’ of their device they can be much more organised with links between home and school technologies being seamless.
