1:1 iPad Program
We now have well over 1000 connected devices at the College and students from years 3- 9 are bringing their own iPads to participate in exciting technology rich learning activities. Teachers plan for the effective use of the devices in their classroom and the iPads have become an increasingly necessary tool for students. The College is committed to providing equity of access to technology for all students but we cannot guarantee that an iPad is available and alternative devices will be used. If at all possible we encourage students to bring an iPad to PCC.
We will be running iPad sessions for parents who would like to know more about the use of this technology. The sessions will be held on March 23. One session will be held in the morning from 8:50am-9:50am and the afternoon session will run from 2pm-3pm go to the following link to register: https://goo.gl/forms/9Qrz7Y5trCHCCpzv1
