BConnected

BConnected is the aggreement that provides the opportunity for students to bring their own iPad and use it for learning both at home and school. A full sized iPad will be on the booklist as an Optional Item for students in year 4-6 in 2018. 
 
Students use technology as a tool to enhance their learning. ICT is a tool for every occupation and is a significant part of our young people’s world. Some say that children who cannot access technology are the unskilled adults of the future! Using an iPad is not making your child smarter, nor does it guarantee better grades. Using ICT provides learners powerful technologies to locate, define and manipulate information to create new knowledge and to enhance their skills, knowledge and understandings. ICT is a tool for enhancing learning through the content of the Australian Curriculum.
 
Students at Aspley State School still engage in traditional handwriting, book reading and mathematical computations. Many apps on the iPad consolidate these core learning areas through drill and practice and also engage students to collaborate as global citizens. Teachers will provide students multiple opportunities to use a variety of tools for learning, and an iPad or computer is just one of these tools.
