BYOD (iPads)

Whitehorse Primary School incorporates the latest education technology throughout the school including SmartBoards, Document Viewers, Vertables and Notebook computers.

In addition, a "BYOD program" has been running since 2012 and allows the 1:1 use of an iPad as an educational device in the classroom.

If you were to walk around our school today you would see iPads used in so many different ways. iPads are used by teachers to achieve learning outcomes in a child's curriculum from Foundation (Prep) to Grade Six.

The iPad is also used to enhance traditional classroom activities such as

  • gather information
  • train handwriting muscle memory
  • present research, plays and science experiments
  • paint a picture
  • tell a story
  • compose music
  • make a movie
  • practice spelling and times tables
  • read a book

We are excited about the way we blend and augment the use of the iPad into our teaching and learning programs.
