  • I am the ICT Coordinator at PLC Junior School. A school of 450 girls from Prep to Year 6. My job entails…..TEACH ALL GIRS P-6.Computer skills..........Consult with classroom teachers......... based around curriculum content - e.g. YEAR 6 DESERTS WEBSITES
  • Never ICT for the sake of ICT.......INTEGRATE We are not a BYOD school or a 1:1 iPad school as we have a very strong laptop program . We have about a 1:3 Macbook ratio ...........students come and borrow the MacBooks which are booked by teachers.
  • • 2 Years ago some staff were provided with iPads to “ trial ” • It was difficult to share around but when individual students had a chance to “ play ” they were excited and also seemed to instantly know the device. • As time moved on I was given the opportunity to incorporate a set of 10 iPads into the Junior school. This trail began with Prep. We are not a 1:1 school. Strong laptop programme I have heard horror stories about schools trying to manage hundreds of iPads as sets. As we only had a few this was going to be less of an issue. • We talked about where the iPads would be best placed and decided upon Prep.
  • • Why Prep? I believe that the accessibility to a digital computing device has never been as great as that of the iPad. Prep - Year 1 students do visit the ICT centre twioce a week but did not borrow MacBooks SO it was seen as a great opportunity to introduce this technology
  • There is no need to control a mouse (waving a mouse in the air Prep) a keyboard (takes 5 minutes to for the start of their name) or even sit on one of the computer chairs. They seem to just pick it up and use it.
  • • Its instant access to apps and a world of learning. • My initial concerns of these devices is that they would be a distraction. A million apps that were “ fun ” but didn ’ t really teach anything or offer much learning. WHAT WAS GOING TO BE THE ADVANTAGES OF IPADS OVER NETBOOKS OR MACBOOKS? SIZE, SPEED, EASE OF USE, • I visited Ringwood North, Brighton Private schools, many more to see how apps were being used in Education.
  • • I worked with the Prep teachers WHAT ARE YOU COVERING IN THE CURRIC THAT IPADS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO RHYMING WORDS NEW WAY OF EXPERIENCING THIS GREAT BOOK o VIDEO – Hairy McLary - PLAY, TOOLS, FOCUS OF LESSON, PUT IPAD DOWN - YOU TOUCH I TAKE
  • Slide 5: technical stuff • I was given a giant toaster over (iPad dock) to manage the 10 iPads we had. GREAT FOR CLASS SET MANAGEMENT - SYNCING, ADDING APPS TO MANY DEVICES I BUY ITUNES CARDS - SCHOOL REEMBURSES ME • VOLUME LICENCING ACCOUNT - I have learnt to buy apps with volume licencing. Buying multiple apps through this account gives us a small discount. CAREFUL ABOUT BUYING MULTIPLE APPS . We want quality apps that serve a purpose. There are a lot of free ones that are great.
  • Accounts and also manage multiple devices through the Apple configurator app for Mac. PREPS CANT DELETE APPS, CHANGE LOCATIONS, DELETE MAIL SETTINGS YOU CAN SET 1 APP TO STAY ON THE SCREEN AND NOT QUIT
  • ANNOUNCEMENT OF 1 CLASS SET FOR PREP, 1 AND 2 1 MACBOOK PER TROLLEY TO CONTROL APPS AND SYNCING (LOCKED AWAY) SECURITY CODES
  • REFLECTOR - WORKS ON MACBOOK Started using reflector software which worked ok but had some stability issues for a few of us. Wifi was upgraded recently so help with the implementation of iPads Recently using Apple TVs to Airplay the iPads onto the projectors. A stable easy way to share my device and student devices to the big screen.
  • WHERE TO FIND QUALITY APPS FOR EDUCATION LOTS OF RUBBISH OUT THERE BEST WAY IS TALKING WITH OTHER TEACHERS - LIKE TODAY! Great websites: Appitic teachthought.com, iear.org –educational apps review, lots of tips and lesson ideas too
  • Some Apps have no rating here yet. Look at ratings on the Apple store USA because of the sheer number of reviews available,
  • Used to think Twitter was finding out what people did for breakfast Awesome resource twitter #ipaded, ipadpln, #edtech, Up to date Wealth of experience from around the world
  • Looks bright FUTURE We need to remember that teacher training is so important EDUCATION IS CHANGING THE WORLD AT OUR FINGER TIPS
