Many schools are considering introducing iPads into their classrooms.

In Term 3, 2012, Macquarie ICT Innovation Centre (MacICT) conducted a small case study to explore how Year One students and teachers might make use of iPads in their classrooms.

The project particularly focused on exploring how iPads can support and extend mathematical learning.

The MacICT team worked with students and teachers from two schools in the Northern Sydney Region to investigate how to uncover useful apps, ways to introduce and use iPads with young students and explored new opportunities for students to show their teachers how they work mathematically.

One thought on “Welcome

  1. Loved reading the results from this i pad trial. I am a Kindergarten teacher at one of the trial schools and was lucky enough to be able to trial the ipads with a group of gifted and talnted Kinder students. It was an amazing experience just watching them interact and take on a whole range of new challenges provided by the apps. The team should be very proud of the work completed on this project. Congratulations to you all…..just fabuloos.
