Wallace High School

17 Sep 2011 - 13:16 | Version 2 |


After collaborating with Apple for a year, Northern Ireland's Wallace High School has launched the country's largest 1:1 iPad initiative. The school's principal, Deborah O'Hare, said in a press release that she and her staff had been letting students bring portable devices into the classroom.

In time, the faculty and administration realized that if they could identify a single device that would be appealing to students, useful to the teachers and understandable by the parents, they'd be onto something.

The iPad 2 is that device.

"In-depth research into the range and quality of educational, productive and creative apps has led us to the conclusion that the iPad allows for greater independent learning on a cost effective, resource rich platform," Principal O'Hare said.

Today, the school has equipped 530 students at Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14) with an iPad 2. Noting that both students and teachers have "an appetite for technology," the school's administration will review the program's effectiveness when considering future planning.
