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.
