Primary pupils swipe and learn

Sixty new iPads are helping pupils at a primary academy in Plymouth to become responsible digital citizens.

Teachers at St George’s Church of England Primary have had specialised training on integrating technology-led learning into the classroom alongside traditional teaching methods.

The upgrade aims to encourage pupils to become responsible digital citizens, to build independent, creative learners and to enhance classroom effectiveness.

“The use of appropriate technology will improve the already above national expectations for pupils and enhance existing high standards,” says Alistair Hudson, the school’s IT leader.

“The classroom no longer has four walls. There is a shift away from traditional classroom teaching towards one that is structured for freedom and virtual work with the aim of developing richer, more complex and sophisticated skills.”
