What we offer

How schools have been using iPods

A school has given all of their year 6 pupils access to an iPod. They have ownership of the device throughout the school day. They are using it in lots of different and creative ways. For example pupils are using the ‘Notes’ app to independently make electronic text, and voice notes on the book they are studying, ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’. This was especially useful when they watched the TV adaptation of the film and made notes whilst they were viewing. The teacher noticed a significant improvement in the quality of written work that was set as pupils were using the comprehensive set of notes they had made to plan for and help them with their written tasks.
