The iPad Programme
At King’s College we are using educational technologies and our e-learning programme to transform the learning experience by making it more student-centred, more dynamic and more accessible.
Our teachers are using technology to give our students access to new resources and new ways to learn. We are also equipping our students with the skills to enhance their own study and research, by making smarter use of the technology that is available to them. One of the key advantages of our e-learning approach is that it allows our staff to deliver more individualised learning opportunities and gives our students greater control over their learning experience.
Students are supported to learn at their own pace, allowing them to revise content with which they need to spend more time, or to stretch themselves with additional readings and exercises. Each student’s device enables our staff to reach them with a range of learning resources such as course notes, videos, podcasts, revision exercises and online publications, including a number of multi-touch interactive books developed in-house by our subject departments.
All our students, from Year 9 to Year 13, are required to use an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil for their learning. Their academic courses are accessible online, enabling them to keep up-to-date with their coursework at any time and from anywhere. We will be advising on the purchase of an iPad and peripherals soon.
Please note that a laptop or alternative tablet are not viable alternatives for your son’s or daughter’s school use at any level.
The College has put together a suite of apps and associated services that are needed on students’ iPads. Some specific subjects or Year levels may require additional apps which the student will need to install as required.
