Last week, 3 of our teachers, Ann Garrick, Erica Shultz and Lauren O’Shea travelled to Melbourne to visit four schools and see how they have integrated tablet technology into the classroom. They came away very enthused and are now looking forward to implementing some of the ideas into our classrooms here at Holy Family.
One of the most interesting concepts they thought was the implementation of BYOD into the schools. BYOD stands for ‘Bring Your Own Device’. This was across all four schools and appeared to work seamlessly. We currently have enough iPad minis in the school to begin our journey with tablets, but, I’d expect we will need to give BYOD some thought into the future.
