1:1 Devices

Webinar, 18 December 2013

1:1 Devices is an area of growing interest. Some schools have implemented devices across one or more year groups. There are several schools that are only just beginning to consider such technologies and the challenges that emerge when trying to provide access across the school.

The Advanced Schools working on this LSL topic will share during the webinar some examples of how devices are getting in the traditional process of teaching and learning in the various curricular activities and how they are changing the school.

They will speak about these tools, among others:

  • Apps for iPads: Moleskine Journal, Book creator
  • Sprint: helping students with learning-disabilities
  • GIMME: Communication with parents

 

 

For starters
