New iPads for Years 7 and 8!

Published Wednesday 19th of September 2012 02:52:58 PM

There was great excitement amongst pupils in Years 7 and 8 at Salisbury Cathedral School as they returned from their summer break. Every pupil has been allocated a new iPad to use through-out the school day and at home, benefiting from this revolutionary technology in all their lessons.
Over the last year, the school has trialled iPads in the science department in a number of imaginative and creative ways, including filming and editing documentaries as a way to summarise a topic. The possibilities the new devices offer are boundless. The school sees them as a personal learning studio - they can be a science lab, literacy tool, research history archive, language lab, art canvas, music studio and library � all rolled into one neat and tactile device.
Speaking of the investment, Duncan Hodson, Assistant Head, said �Using iPads will enable ICT to be integrated seamlessly into the curriculum. Traditionally, ICT has been taught through the use of a suite of computers, leading to the mantra from pupils �We�re doing computers now�. What we needed was a way to use ICT across the whole school - in any lesson, in an instant . Our new wireless network and iPads will enable this to happen as part of our commitment to ensuring our pupils are at the forefront of creative learning.�
The next Open Morning at the school is on Saturday, 29th September from 10am � 12 noon. For more information, please visit the website at www.salisburycathedralschool.com or call Jo Coleman on 01722 555300. E: pr@salisburycathedralschool.com
