Presentation Courses

To explain and demonstrate the transformational potential of iPads for learning, we can deliver presentations to any of the following groups:

Parents

Why would schools be considering - or have decided - to invest in this technology? What will learning look and feel like for pupils if they each have an iPad? How will this new initiative support pupils towards those all important exams?

These questions and more can be explored during a Parents’ Evening presentation. We can demonstrate and explain the benefits of bringing iPad into the learning landscape of the school.

Governors

Why iPads? Governors need to feel that the potential investment will show a healthy return in terms of pupil attainment and the school’s results. We can explain the ways in which iPads can ensure that learning time is maximised for all pupils and can present examples of successful iPad deployment at other similar schools.

SMT

Making rapid and sustained progress is paramount; we understand this and can demonstrate the ways in which a 1:1 iPad scheme can lead to far greater differentiation, personalisation and evidencing of learning. If your SMT need a vision of how the technologies can enhance teaching and learning, our experts can provide some compelling examples.

Pupil Orientation Sessions

Pupil Orientation Sessions

For schools who are about to implement a 1:1 iPad rollout (whether whole school, or with a year group)

Though confident users of technology, pupils have known the iPad as a consumer device - a means of entertainment. These sessions are designed to introduce pupils to the iPad’s learning possibilities and to enable them to work as content creators.

These sessions enable pupils to become familiar with a set of apps that they can use to evidence learning across the curriculum - a learning toolkit - and this will enable staff to continue delivering their curriculum in lessons without needing to focus on explaining the technologies.

Sessions will fit in with the lesson length and structure of a normal school day and should cause minimal disruption to routine.
