Program Development

Significant research was carried out in the development of the iPad Program to ensure that the College implemented an effective program that enhances student learning outcomes.  Teachers have participated in significant Professional Learning associated with the use of iPads in education and have contributed to action research regarding how iPads increase student learning outcomes.  Following a trial program in 2012 involving Year 9 and Year 10 students, the program was reviewed with contributions from students, parents and teachers.  The review identified that the program had been extremely successful and hence the program was expanded to include Year 7 to Year 11 in 2013.  A range of actions has taken place in order to further develop the program.  In 2015 the College had a 1:1 device program across Year 7 to Year 12 with iPads for Years 7 – 9 and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Program across Years 10-12.
