At The Arcadia Preparatory School our use of ICT for learning is based on:
- Making sound and sensible choices about the use of learning technologies
- Technologies support critical thinking and enhance creativity
- Technology supports communication
- Technology is used to enhance teaching and learning within and outside the classroom
Class sets of iPads are utilised by teacher as and when appropriate to enhance teaching and learning throughout the school day.
We implement a one to one iPad programme for all Key Stage 2 pupils. The school purchases the iPads and then sells on to parents. The device is managed through the MDM system and pupils are able to take the device to and from home and school. Parents retain ownership of the device if the child leaves Arcadia and at that point the device is disconnected from the MDM system.
Our teachers are provided with powerful, professional Apple devices including iPads and MacBooks. This allows them to manage learning efficiently and effectively and to be delivering leading edge programmes with empowering technology.
