ICT can be used as a tool and an environment for learning in a range of different ways.  At Redlands College, we summarise the range of uses as 5 Cs. Students also use their iPad as a self-management tool.

As a broad guide, we have the following goals for the iPad programme:

  1. iPads will be used to facilitate teaching and learning by allowing students to:
    1. access, use, create and publish digital and online information
    2. develop knowledge, understanding and skills through creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving
    3. collaborate with others
    4. communicate, in a variety of ways, their knowledge and learning experiences.
  2. Students will use the iPad as a tool to manage their work and learning.
  3. Students will develop age-appropriate ICT skills and understandings, including the responsibilities of online citizenship.
  4. Students will accept responsibility for:
    1. their personal actions when using ICT
    2. the care and functionality of their iPad.
