As has been publicised previously, Dalyellup Primary School will continue with the parent funded 1 to 1 iPad program for the Year 4, 5 & 6 classes in 2016. Information sessions were held in 2015 for parents of Year 3 Students in preparation for their participation in the Program in 2016. For further information about the Program, please contact the school office.
The iPad has become an educational tool in your child’s toolkit to help meet curriculum requirements alongside (rather than instead of) more traditional tools like textbooks, pencils and paper. It is important to note that traditional methods of education such as writing in exercise books, etc., will not be replaced by the iPad, but rather complimented by the device.
During the first 3 years of our 1 to 1 iPad program we saw many successes across a range of Learning Areas, which has been supported by our own testing data along with our NAPLAN results. An increase in engagement and extension into student learning has also occurred as a result of the use of the iPad device in classrooms.
