iPad Program

What is a 1:1 program?

One-to-one learning provides every student and teacher access to his or her own portable computer in a wireless environment allowing students to learn at their own pace and ability level. The program aims to expand the learning environment beyond the walls of the classroom to give students the capability to collaborate, share information and experiences and take control of their learning in ways not previously possible.

Similar 1:1 initiatives have gained momentum worldwide and are increasingly seen as a key to transforming education and better preparing students to succeed in a global world. More widespread access to computers makes it possible for students and teachers in schools to transition from occasional, supplemental use of computers for instruction to more frequent, integral use of technology across a multitude of settings.

Providing students with access to wirelessly connected computers has the potential to transform learning environments and improve student learning outcomes. Furthermore, 24/7 access to computers makes it possible for students to access a wider array of resources to support their learning, to communicate with peers and their teachers, and to become fluent in their use of the technological tools of the 21st century workplace. Most of all, it provides the opportunity for fully customized 1:1 learning.

 From 2014 Iramoo will be using iPads as the 1 to 1 device we will be introducing in Grade 4. It is a fantastic device, highly engaging, intuitive to use and with access to thousands of Apps, many of them free.
