FLEXIBLE LEARNING SPACES
LEARNING WITH TECHNOLOGY
Within a wireless Apple learning environment where iPads and CDM Laptops have been deployed across all years and learning areas, Manjimup Primary School has opened the doors to a state of the art and modern learning environment. Led by highly skilled and committed educators, children are provided with daily opportunities to engage with powerful digital learning tools allowing them to create, collaborate, communicate and discover.
At present 60% of students bring their own iPads while the remaining students share 150 iPads and 30 laptops on a daily basis. Teachers are harnessing the enthusiasm and eagerness of students by providing learning opportunities driven by the Australian Curriculum. Students are using the devices to search, create, produce, celebrate, demonstrate and reinforce their learning. They are excited, enthused and highly engaged. In a world where screens entertain at home; school is using screens to educate.
The iPad is transforming the way teachers teach and has changed the learning landscape. At Manjimup Primary School teachers are maximizing the opportunities provided by the digital technologies provided to them. Increased accessibility to instant and global information with high levels of student engagement and instant reinforcement; students are embracing the technology as ‘just the way it is’.
With a strong appetite to harness this enthusiasm even further and allow children opportunities to demonstrate their individual strengths whilst teachers develop individual programs, a sustainable 1:1 program is required.
