Year 4 iPad to Year 5 Laptops

This week is a very exciting week for the Year 4 boys. The boys will hand in their beloved iPad's and move to Macbook Airs. The laptops are perfect for the added demands of Year 5 and the PYP Exhibition. Miss Cirillo and Mr Wells have some very exciting laptop driven learning for the boys in Year 5 in 2016.

The Year 4 boys will begin the transfer process with a 1:1 Laptop information session presented by Dr Nick Spadaccini. The boys and their parents will hear all the important information about using and looking after their new machines before moving off to receive the new MacBook Air notebooks.

The boys will upload any important work via Showbie and transfer their iPad camera rolls to their laptops to be able to refer to their work completed on the iPad in the future.

All Junior School boys get to take home their iPads and laptops over the summer holidays to continue their learning at home. The Junior School Weekly Notices has helpful tips for parents regarding managing 1:1 devices at home.
