iPads in schools

Programme dates: October 2012 – ongoing
An outcome from the Video for Communication project,iPads have been loaned to three special schools and another, mainstream school with special educational needs pupils. The idea is to let teachers try out the accessibility features and support with their pupils before making a major investment.

Preliminary feedback has been enthusiastic though there are undoubtedly potential problems in scaling up such an approach. Useful, practical information is available from Fraser Speirs blog.

We aim to collate feedback from the schools to inform others in Spring 2013.
