iPads @ Kew

Posted on Thursday 28, June 2012

Kew Primary School is proud to announce a major move into the world of digital learning! During school hours students from year three to six will be given access to iPads in the classroom. iPads and other tablet devices foster 21st century learning skills such as collaboration, digital literacy, inquiry and creativity. We believe iPads are the tool to make learning engaging, relevant to the students and are an integral part of preparing our students for the future.

Students will be using iPads to enhance their literacy  and numeracy sessions, with applications that allow for shared reading and note taking. Students will be able to present their learning in a variety of ways, including posters, keynote presentations, videos, slide shows, mind maps, books and custom designed programs.

We will use iPads to bring the world into our classrooms. They will open up the classroom to collaboration with other schools, primary information sources and areas of student interest. The iPad device can be used to support learning across the curriculum in a multitude of ways, and we look forward to this new phase in our development.
