ICT, ipads & BYOD

In 2016 we will be giving Years 3-6 children at Waitakiri the option of bringing their own iPad or
iPad Mini (iPad 2 or above) to school. We believe that the use of the iPads will enhance
learning opportunities particularly as a way to connect with the world, create new
understandings and solutions to problems and communicate learning to others.
