2022 will see the start of our year 3 to 6 iPad program. The program aims to support our children's learning in the classroom, accessing digital resources and completing digital based activities.
At no stage will iPads replace our teachers, instead the iPads will be integrated into our teaching across years 3 and progressively to year 6. Our teachers will utilise the iPads when they feel it is required and balance this with explicit teaching in the classrooms.
The introduction of our iPad program will supplement our learning tools, our lab and fleet of laptops will be maintained. At Manly West State School we feel students require access to variety of tools as this model reflects how we operate in the real world.
