Why iPad? “It was a no-brainer to go with iPad. I wanted creative technology to be central to our educational provision.”
“They’ve got the most creative device known to man in their hands. They own it, and it’s theirs.
The cost to our school for the best kit in the world is absolutely minimal every year, and after three years it refreshes as well. So it just works brilliantly.
Our kids learn through what we call learning expeditions. These are academically rigorous, cross-subject projects where at the end of each project, students will make something tangible that can be shared.
Some call this project-based learning; we call it ‘expeditionary learning’. Students create things like books, films, documentaries and videos which we then make public.
The child going to university has the same equipment as one going for an apprenticeship, or a student with SEN.
They’ve got the same devices as each other, and therefore access to the same level of opportunity as each other. It’s then up to them to see how high and how far they can reach.
There are two sides to the educational battle – conformity versus creativity. We’re firmly on the creative side.
We’re going to empower you, and we’re going to let you express who you are through your work.
And there’s no better device than an iPad when it comes to enabling students to express what they’re capable of.
