  • 18. DEECD iPad Trial Findings [edited] 5. Teaching and learning success with iPads is more likely where they are used in a supportive school and home environment. a) School leaders actively encourage the purposeful use of iPads as a strategic support for improving student outcomes, and facilitate teacher access to pedagogically-focused professional learning opportunities. b) Students and teachers have timely access to quality technical advice and support. c) Parents are informed about and understand the way in which iPads will be used to support their childs learning and take an active interest in their childs learning. 6. iPads in the trial had a signicantly greater educational impact (and were more successfully implemented) in primary and special school settings than in secondary schools. a) This was in part related to structural differences between contemporary primary and secondary classes. b) Primary and special school teachers in the trial also demonstrated greater preparedness and capacity to incorporate the effective use of iPads into learning and assessment activities. The iPads for Learning Trial reinforces that quality of teaching, combined with purposeful and effective use of ICT contributes to improved learning.Thursday, 18 October 12
