BYO iPad Device – 1:1 Year 4/5 Program

Starting in Term 2, 2017 the Year 4 and 5 cohort at Harrisdale Primary School will become a 1:1 Apple iPad learning environment. Each student is invited to BYO (Bring Your Own) Apple iPad Device and be a part of innovative teaching and learning opportunities.

There are several technical requirements and a list of apps that we ask are downloaded for the program. All of the information is available through the following document, alongside FAQ’s toward the end of the document.

In 2016 and 2017,  parent seminars were held and a digital version of this is available below. We encourage you to ask questions if you have any and join us for Parent Seminars across the year as they arise to observe, share and learn about the innovative strategies which are occurring in classrooms.

An evolutionary approach to learning is upon us and we are excited to be a part of the journey in our 1:1 iPad Program at Harrisdale Primary School.
