OCEAN GROVE PRIMARY SCHOOL
BYO iPad Program
At OGPS, our belief is that meaningful educational technology integration is an essential element to learning. Technology is a tool that is one part of a quality learning process. The iPad is just one of those tools we have added to our 21st Century ‘pencil case’.
Our vision is to inspire our students and their families to become confident and safe users of technology during their time at OGPS.
Can I send my child to school with their own iPad?
Yes, any child in any year level at OGPS can bring their own iPad to school.
Why are iPads used as a learning tool in classrooms?
The manner in which teacher’s plan and teach across all programs is crucial. The same goes for Digital Technologies and ICT. Staff at OGPS are learning about the SAMR model – a model that outlines our goal to enhance students’ learning through the use of digital technologies. Take a look at the graphic below to gain a deeper understanding of the SAMR model.
