There are many benefits of using technology in our classes we use iPads and laptops to improve our learning and to easily find research in class time. However, we have realised that apps can be distracting to students doing research on the iPads. In order to prevent students from using apps that shouldn't be used in lesson time, we believe that apps that are not to be used in the lesson are locked. This could keep the focus in the lesson as we feel that the use of the iPad's is a great way to engage students with learning!
If you would like to know about the apps we use in lessons, please pop down to U103 on Wednesday lunchtimes to speak to our iLearners!
