Exploring iPads in learning at St Josephs

Fun, Fun, Fun!

The community of St Joseph’s Schofields spent Thursday 18th August celebrating their Fun-a-thon. This fundraising event raised a terrific amount of money to use towards purchasing technology, in particular Ipads, for St Joseph’s.

One of the activities the students completed during the day, was an introduction to Ipads. Students from Kindergarten through to Year 6 loved being introduced to Ipads and a variety of Apps. They loved learning how to use “Puppet Pals”, which allowed the rookies right through to the experts to create and present a show.

Kindergarten laughed and laughed as “Talking Tom” kept interrupting them from the IWB as they created colourful characters for their puppet shows.

A HUGE St Joseph’s thank you goes to The Learning Exchange for loaning the school a set of 20 Ipads to help make the day a success.
