Since starting my role as digital learning coordinator I have sought to bring in an Ipad 1:1 scheme. Schools such as Clevedon, spear headed by Mark Anderson, have shown it can be done. I started the ball rolling by speaking to their supplier, Western Computers. Their technical and educational knowledge was exceptional and we chatted for 3 and a half hours! They are now coming into our school to present to our staff and give interactive demo’s in early October. I hope for a positive response from staff will mean we can then invite parents in to get their opinion.
In the mean time I’m setting up separate staff and student digital ambassador groups, so we can bring about a culture change within the school.
