Over the past five years, Firbank has successfully implemented the use of iPads across Years 3 -12. The mobility, weight and durability of iPads continues to make it the preferred learning device for Junior School students.
In our Prep-Year 2 classes the students have been using school owned class sets of iPads which has helped to familiarise them in the ways they can be used to support their learning and to manage them in safe and responsible ways. We feel this preparation, together with classroom and home management, will lay appropriate foundations for the use of iPads as a personal device for students in Year 3 and above.
We look forward to working with you and your child to effectively integrate the use of this engaging technology into our learning programs. You will receive further correspondence regarding parent workshops at the start of the new academic year.
