We are incredibly pleased to announce that all students at Lansdowne School now have access to iPads to help with their learning. All staff are excited about the potential that the iPads offer. We are currently researching and testing various apps that will help each student reach their learning needs.
The iPads are the perfect learning tool to help the pupils at Lansdowne School. The ease of access in finding an app, plus the interactive nature of the colour and sound make them far more preferable than using a traditional style PC or laptop.
One possibility that is currently being explored is that of interactive storytelling. The pupils are able to read along with a talking book, plus also replace the recorded voices and add their own narrative to the images that are being displayed in the iPads.
If any parents or carers have access to an iPad in the home environment, please do speak with the various subject teachers to find out what apps we are recommending to help out with home learning.
