Learning with iPad
Highly engaging and powerful learning experiences are what motivate us to get out of bed in the morning. Our teachers are passionate about, you guessed it, teaching. And we are really excited about the changes we are putting in place for our future students. From 2023, all students at Leumeah High School will access their learning with the aid of an iPad.
We've been working on our iPad program since early 2018 and in that time we have developed partnerships with T4L and Apple Education. We've engaged our staff in many hours of professional learning, consulted with community, visited other schools across Australia to see what they are doing and engaged Apple Professional Learning specialists to work with our teachers and students. We've become a leader in this space. Our staff are regularly called upon to share their expertise with other schools across Australia and overseas.
We've seen notable improvements in a number of data points for our students. Improved attendance, lower behaviour issues and improved academic results. Our parents are saying that their child has been coming home and talking about their learning and showing them what they have been doing.
We are thrilled to share that from 2023 we have been able to secure funding to heavily subsidise the cost of an iPad for families along with an ongoing commitment to maintaining our digital infrastructure and employing technical support.
At LHS, the iPad is the next calculator, only far more powerful!
We know that getting iPad for your child is a significant investment and will generate concerns around cybersafety. That's why we have taken a number of years to get to this point. So that we could build the support, infrastructure and teacher expertise to ensure that the next evolution of learning at Leumeah High School will be a successful and powerful learning experience for your child.
We will host information seminars for our community for students enrolling into year 7 as well as providing opportunities for parents to develop their skills and knowledge around cybersafety and screen time.
We are really excited about the future of learning at Leumeah High School and we want you to be as well. If you have any concerns please contact the school on 02 4625 7755 and we will be happy to help.
