Has your school purchased iPads? Are they being used to support learning across the curriculum, or do you consider their use to be limited (e.g. research, practising repetitive skills).
We have put together a range of resources to help you embed iPads in English and Maths.These resources mainly use the in-built features and apps of the iPads such as the camera and iMovie. There are ideas for using iPads to support the aims of the National Curriculum, and suggestions for staff training to extend teachers' confidence and broaden their expectations.
We have also curated a set of core apps for each phase, based on feedback from Somerset schools. Most are free, but some are paid-for apps that we consider to be essential for schools. We have suggested how these can support the requirements for English and Maths.
These resources build on the work of the original Somerset iPad project, where teachers shared their experience of using iPads with primary learners. They are for SSE eLIM Ed Tech subscribing schools who wish to plan for and implement a roll-out of tablet devices in their school.
