We have provided all sixth form students at the Whitehaven with iPad Minis. The iPads will be an invaluable teaching and learning tool, both for students in their own, independent study, and within lessons. Students will use e-Tribe to access resources, submit work, enter into discussions and see their own results and data in real time. Additionally, the all members of the academy can download free copies of Microsoft Office to their iPads and to their home and work computers – ensuring that they can access all of the tools they need wherever they are.
To support the roll-out of the iPads, we have upgraded the wireless network within the academy and Apple TVs have been installed – allowing students to instantly share their work with the class.
We are providing drop-in workshops to help students get the most out of their new devices, and in-class support is also in place.
