This week we're working with the staff and students from Rydalmere East. This engagement is a little different as the class has three year groups in one. This produces its own challenges, but the iPad is a great leveller. Let's be honest, since when has a child's 'date...

We just spent two amazing days with the staff and students from Epping West Public school. I don't think I've ever experienced such a warm welcome! As part of the sessions the first goal was to create a buzz around using technology. The staff meeting on the first day w...

One of the key questions I’m asked when working with schools is “What are the best apps for the classroom?” This is a difficult one, as the answer will largely depend on how familiar the school is with using iPads.

A lot of schools we work with often find drill apps ben...

You might have heard of this one before! It's been around for a while, but this update has made a world of difference. The key is in the title with the added 3D. This is an awesome app for digital literacy. Students can use the large selections of backgrounds and chara...
