One to One iPad Program

ipad thumbSt Paul's currently has pods of iPads that are used by all classes. Our St Paul's Kindergarten has pods of iPad minis which are used by the children on a regular basis.

Commencing in March / April 2014, we are pleased to announce that we will be introducing a One to One iPad Program. "One to One" means that there is one iPad for one student; children will not have to share.

Students in Prep, Year 2, Year 4 and Year 6 in 2014 will be using pods of iPads provided by St Paul's. Children in Years 1, 3, and 5 in 2014, will be asked to bring an iPad to use in class everyday. This will also happen in 2015, for Years 1, 3, and 5.

Parent information nights will be set for this term, where all information will be available, including why, costs, and how to use them at home. A representative from Apple, and Lutheran Education Queensland consultants will also be on hand to give a rundown of the program, to explain its advantages, and to answer questions.

Teachers are using iPads on an everyday basis in 2013 and are involved in Professinal Development to continue upgrading their skills to further enhance their curriculum. Pictured: Kindy children already familiar with the iPad technology.
