iPad Trial for Teachers 2

What was important for us?

It was important that our staff became upskilled in the use of mobile devices to allow them to think about the possibilities of using them in the context of learning.

Why was this important?

The new technologies that are emerging present us as educators with a horizon full of possibilities but to be confident facilitators of learning for our students we felt that teachers needed to have hands on experience with these devices.

What did we do?

During the course of 2012 we deployed across our entire teaching staff a programme of learning about iPads and then using them in educational contexts.

What happened, as a result?

All staff attended a series of Professional Development workshops that covered the use of the device and also the possibilities within our classes.

Each faculty then evaluated the device to give information for future school wide decisions.


What are our next steps?

To develop our BYOD strategy and to do this we have just implemented a series of surveys to gather information from our school community. (including; staff. parents and students)

Who are we? The MRM ICT PD Cluster comprises Mountainview High School, Roncalli College and Mt Hutt College.
