Using the iPad at St Kentigern's
The overall aim is for ICT to support and enhance daily school life for both teachers and pupils. Using the iPad it is possible to achieve this aim with the correct planning, training and ICT infrastructure. As a portable device the iPad allows mobile ICT access at any time during the school day and will be used to support every area of the curriculum and much more. Limited ICT core skills are required as the iPad/Apps are simple in design and navigation; this allows ICT to be integrated into traditional lessons without adjusting the time allowance.
