iPads are gently introduced to Kindy students where apps are used in a substitutional format and students learn to care for and respect the devices.
Pre Primary classes provide explicit teaching to develop an understanding of creative apps such as Pic Collage, Popplet and Book Creator so they can apply these skills to class tasks.
From Years 1-6 students are encouraged to bring their own iPad so they can not only expand their range of skills and knowledge of apps and features to enhance their learning but then share this information with parents at home.
The teachers at Treendale Primary School are constantly developing their understanding of iPads and apps based on the philosophy of the SAMR Model, where the goal of technology integration is to have students re-define what they have learned and share it with others.
