On Thursday 7 March from 6.30pm to 7.30pm in the Theatrette, we are having an evening we are calling “Recapturing the Ipad”.There is no doubt that the iPad is a very effective learning and organising tool but there are plenty of unwelcome distractions-namely messaging, internet browsing and other time wasters. For some of you there might even be random alarms that sound in the middle of the night!
The evening will be led by our Educational Technology Specialist Teacher Mr Brad Evans. He will demonstrate some of the ways we are using the iPads at the College and give you the tools and tips that you need to ensure that the iPad is being used for the purpose it was intended at home. Such items for discussion will include internet filtering, putting parent controls on the ipad, how to be “internet-savvy”, controlling your wireless internet and your download bill.
It will be a very valuable evening for all Middle School Parents.
